We think about what we read.
There is so much that is unhelpful.
Let’s share some good bits.

ICYMI – Last Week’s Good Links.

  1. It is ONLY through sacrifice that we build the future. Just ask Seth Godin.
  2. Tom Corley of Rich Habits tells us how to Build a Foundation for Financial Success in Four Steps. I would add that in order to take the first step completely – you better find something you LOVE!
  3. Self-Compassion in periods of stress is critical for all ages, but this is especially hard for teens. Beating ourselves up isn’t a good long-term strategy. It takes time and experience to learn that admitting you are human and fallible; being a little humble and even vulnerable works a lot better.
  4. If you don’t know how your product or service impacts the joy / happiness/ bliss of your customer or client… rest assured that the Rational Consumer will soon replace you as a vendor.
  5. Warren Buffett’s annual letter to shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway is a must read. Pay particular attention to the 2nd paragraph on page 10 and the chart of major dips and its description lower down on the same page and continuing onto page 11.
  6. A practical word of advice you can take from David Merkel’s cautionary tale – Monitor [your] Financial Accounts Regularly.
  7. For an in depth annual look at markets and economies, one doesn’t need to look much further than Credit Suisse’s Global Investment Yearbook.
  8. I LOVE everything about the Avett Brothers and their music. Perhaps the most amazing thing about them is simply watching 2 brothers create thei mutual joy… together… every step of the way. I can’t wait to see this Judd Apatow documentary, May It Last.
