Charlie Munger, a billionaire, desired that his children remember three parenting lessons "until their 100th birthdays." 

Charlie Munger, 99, passed away on November 28. Among his last articles are these thoughts on his life and career that he published for CNBC Make It. 

Although my children and grandkids may not share my opinions, I hope they will look to me as an example of how to succeed in their relationships and occupations, just as I did with the generations that came before me.  

In my early years, my father worked as a lawyer. He had as a client Grant McFayden, the Pioneer Ford dealer in Omaha and one of his closest friends. He was a self-made, intelligent, charming man with great integrity. 

My father, on the other hand, dealt with a demanding, conceited, and unfair client. I was thinking to myself, "Why do you do so much work for Mr. X, this overreaching blowhard, instead of working more for wonderful men like Grant?"  

"Grant treats his employees right, his customers right, and his problems right," stated my dad. "He doesn't have a lucrative enough legal practice to keep you with Coca-Cola. However, Mr. X is a veritable minefield of amazing legal matters." 

I learned from this conversation that, on occasion, you might have to sell your services to an irrational blowhard if doing so is the only way you can provide for your family. However, you aspire to live your own life, a la Grant McFayden.  

My father taught us a valuable lesson in a very witty way. He told me in a way that took a tiny mental reach, rather than just hammering it in. I've never forgotten it since I had to seek for it. I've also taught my own kids and grandkids using his methods. 

The thirty-year-old IT engineer relocated to Johor, the southernmost tip of Malaysia, a year ago and settled inside Forest City, a large housing complex constructed by the Chinese. He rented a one-bedroom apartment with a view of the sea in a tower block.
