Magtiwala. But double-check din pag may time!


Pero, alam mo? Dapat may time ka talaga.

Lalo pa’t merong involve na money.

I will talk a lot later to give you time to watch (in case di mo pa napanood) the ANC “On the Money” video I stumbled upon that provides some root-cause to the previous posts such as:

You may check the above links after watching Salve Duplito’s interview with the two victims:

Review question matapos mo panoorin ang interview (sana pinanood mo talaga): Did you notice something?

Right.

The Speed of Trust! Paano ka hindi agad-agad magtiwala sa isang “long-time friend” o kaya family member na kasabay mong lumaki?

Parang nakakatakot tuloy magtiwala, ‘di ba?

Pero pakinggan mo ito. May mga deals din naman na kahit wala masyadong due diligence at based on trust lang talaga ay naging successful. Tulad nung bilhin ni Warren Buffet yung Nebraska Furniture Mart kay Mrs B for 60 Million USD. Kuwento ni Roger Lowenstein sa National BestSeller na “Buffet: The Making of an American Capitalist,” dalawang tanong at dalawang sagot lang, tapos deal na agad! Nung panahong iyon, pinakamalaking investment na ito ng Berkshire Hathaway ni Buffet at hanggang sa ngayon kumikita pa rin! Hindi nila long-time friend and isa’t isa, lalong hindi sila mag kamag-anak. Nagkataon lang na yung Furniture Mart ay nasa tapat nung paboritong Steak House ni Buffet.

Mahusay lang talaga siguro itong si Buffet mag-spot ng opportunities. Sa panuntunan (principle) ni Buffet,  integrity* (integridad) ng tao at negosyo ang pinaka-hinahanap n’ya sa isang investment.

For Buffet, kung wala ang integrity, ‘wag na lang!

Marahil, ito ang na-miss out nung dalawang resource persons sa show. Or baka naman, may integrity naman na talaga yung con artist (scammer) pero biglang nagbago for some reasons.

*Definition:

  • Integrity (noun) –
    the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
    “he is known to be a man of integrity”
    synonyms: honesty, probity, rectitude, honor, good character, principle(s), ethics, morals, righteousness, morality, virtue, decency, fairness, scrupulousness, sincerity, truthfulness, trustworthiness
    “I never doubted his integrity”

Ang tanong. Kailan ka ba talaga dapat mag double-check (due diligence)?

Ang suggestion ko kahit may tiwala ka naman sa kausap mo: All the time!

Ang scripture, na itinuturing kong authority pagdating sa moral uprightness, mismo ay ini-encourage na ganyan ang dapat gawin.

Sa kuwento ng mga Bereans (Acts 17:10-13), they trusted but they verified.

“they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth.”

Trust & Validate! It’s always better to be safe than sorry, ika nga.

May isa pa akong naalalang kasabihan: Trust God but lock your car! Subukan mo ‘wag sundin ito, tingnan natin kung may kotse ka pang babalikan sa parking area ng isang mall. Of course yes, Trust God! Pero expected na gagawin mo ang dapat mong gawin na kaya mong gawin. Binigyan tayo ng utak para gamitin ito at maging wa-is (wise).
