What is "stretch"? Hi, This is about Warren Buffet. - What does "he went for long stretches" mean? - Is he failed and forgot in business in the last sentence? ------------------------------- One of Buffett's biographers wrote: "Unlike most people who read Carnegie's book and thought, gee, that makes sense, then set the book aside and forgot about it, Warren worked at this project with unusual concentration; he kept coming back to these ideas and using them. Even when he failed and forgot and went for long stretches without applying himself to the system, he returned and resumed practicing in the end.

In this instance, it is synonymous with "a period of time." "Even when he failed and forgot and went for a long period of time without applying himself to the system, he returned and resumed practicing in the end."
