ICYMI: Last Week on GOOD LINKS.
- Wei Wu Wei is a mantra you can hear often today in Yoga videos. It is the art of doing without doing. In Lau Tzu’s Tau Te Ching, it is the art of being like water… “in flow.” Focusing on the things that matter means Saying “NO” to the Non-Essential. Thanks Farnam Street for the reminder.
- People are easily fooled; unfortunately the easiest person to fool… is ourselves. Read about the Dunning-Kruger effect on Quartz. The person who is best at lying to you is you.
- We know in the “fake news” cycle that more information never equates to wisdom. We have to judge the quality and value of any information presented to us. This requires reputation. Say goodbye to the information age: it’s all about reputation now.
- Want to have a better marriage? Remember that Marriages grow and shrink, they expand and contract… “They aren’t just one thing, they’re many.” Go Inside the Marriage Lab.
- I can’t make this shit up! One of the first robo-advisor leaders – the scions of passive investing – goes active to increase revenues. Beware Roboadvisors Bearing Low Fees.
- It was never about slow and steady… It has always been about sticking when it is hard. Just know that you will trail (sometimes by a lot) and that is just part of investing. Slow and Steady Wins the Race—in the land of Make Believe
- ‘Nuf said. “The history of financial forecasts is long. And it is pathetic.” Read Morgan Housel’s Why We Listen to Bad Forecasts
- Ever wonder, “What is ‘middle class’?” The Financial Samurai suggests: The Definition of a Middle Class Lifestyle Is the Same as It Ever Was.
