#037: Monday Memo: 6 Lessons Finance Can Learn From Forrest Gump

Andrew Codd

One of my favourite movies of all time is Forrest Gump, ever since I first watched it on a rented videotape when it was released nearly 25 years ago. I also imagine it was other people’s favourite movie that year, it was a commercial success grossing more than $1bn at the box office (in today’s money), a 12x return on investment in its first year, and is one of the most quoted movies of all time.

So now that I look back on it there are six the lessons the main character, Forrest Gump, taught and learned which can also provide useful guidance for finance and accounting professionals and I cover these in this short episode.
