Why is that? Because Buffett has many things going for him that you do not, and likely will never, ever possess. I refer not to that pile of $73 billion dollars. Rather, I refer to the secret of his skill set and abilities, which is actually not much of a secret at all.
Warren Buffett's not-so-secret-sauce is the combination of just three things, none of which I suspect you possess or deem of much importance:
No. 1. He has a deeply held philosophy that has withstood the test of time and can be summed up in a simple phrase: Value investing.
No. 2. He is extremely disciplined.
No. 3. His time horizons are extremely long term.
If you want to be a great investor, the thing to learn from Buffett is not to try and replicate exactly what he does. It is understanding the perfect fit between him and the investing style that has come to epitomize Berkshire Hathaway. The optimal strategy that you cannot follow is vastly inferior to the sub-optimal plan you can follow.
So don't be like Warren - be like you.
