‘Long-Term Greedy’

Gus Levy is credited with coining the phrase ‘long-term greedy’. He chose these words for the culture he built in the 1960’s and 70’s at Goldman Sachs.

On first hearing these words we get a little uncomfortable. The word greedy rarely rings as something pure and worth pursuing.

However, this concept of long-term greed is simply another way to discuss the Law of Harvest and the Law of Cause and Effect.

Long-term greed does its homework.

Long-term greed honors the relationship.

Long-term greed saves a penny, earns a penny, and sees the penny multiplied.

Long-term greed responds and doesn’t react.

Long-term greed sees tomorrow in the moments made today.

We should all be greedy for purpose, meaning, and fulfillment.

Let us not be shortsighted for such a destination…it’s going to be a long flight.
