"Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks"

- Warren Buffett

About this Quote

This quote by Warren Buffett is a metaphor for life. It recommends that when we discover ourselves in a tight spot, it is much better to concentrate on finding a new solution rather than trying to repair the existing problem. This is since the energy spent on trying to repair the problem might not be enough to make a long lasting difference. Rather, it is much better to focus on discovering a new solution that will offer a more irreversible option. This quote encourages us to think outside the box and to be imaginative in our approach to fixing issues. It also advises us that in some cases it is better to start fresh rather than trying to repair something that might not be fixable.
