When in doubt, walk away

As Warren Buffett notes about investing and life, the swings you don’t take aren’t counted against you. You just have to find a few hits that will work for you, and it’s okay to take a lot of pitches until you do. Therefore, if you’re in doubt about a deal (or anything in life!), don’t be afraid to walk away. There will be another one next week.

Put another way, if there’s any doubt, there is no doubt. Listen to your instincts. Listen to what millions of years of evolution are telling you. Don’t succumb to external pressure to do a deal that doesn’t sit right with you. Don’t do a deal that keeps you up at night.
