Wonderful Things HappenGood morning.
After the extreme volatility of 2020 — or just last week — having a quiet day in the market feels like a rare treat.  But most days in the market are quiet.  Thanks to the gyrations of stocks, a decent annual return is borne out of small gyrations, day in and day out.  Even when things calm, however, the next move is quietly being put into place.
In the oil market for instance, the price of the commodity is nearing highs last seen in February of last year.  That’s due to talks of reduced production by big-name suppliers to keep prices up. It’s also allowing energy companies to help push the market higher while tech stocks play a more defensive role.  When the market is calm, looking for these sector rotations can be a big driver of trading returns.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Cataract surgery in my left-eye; Barry picked me up at (home) 5:45 AM to be a Mitchell’s Eye Centre for my 6:20 AM appointment.

… All went well.  Amazing ‘what a difference 15 minutes makes’!  Barry also returned to the Mitchell Eye Centre, a couple of hours later to ‘pick me up.’  We then went for coffee; then he drove me back home!  Thanks ‘Bear.’ 😉

Building Bridges or Big Dreams … Day #7

One of my Facebook themes at Robert Walker is all about “Live the Dream!  I’ve always been fascinated by dreamers.  And making dreams come true for myself and others is what my life is about.

By investing the time and energy to get clear on our values and life purpose, by defining and articu-lating what we really want from all areas of our life, and then consis-tently acting on our objectives, we will live a successful life.  This kind of work isn’t easy.  It requires deep thinking & honest soul-searching.  It is not something you do in an afternoon.  It demands constant focus and attention.  Unless you’re the architect of your life, you’re at the effect of everything and everyone you encounter.  It is something with which we all need help.

My passion is helping people discover, develop and fulfill their dreams.  In the process, I fulfill my own.  l take great joy in supporting people and organizations to consistently create excellence.  To participate in the development and realization of a dream is, for me, to walk upon holy ground.  By living our dreams, we give birth to things that never would have been, but more importantly, we become more of who we are in the process.

Friday the 13th.  No! … I’m not superstitious … but, I had to take an extra day off!

My shoulders, knee joints, lower back & legs, and the stress of dealing with the car … I need some time for me to recharge!  Yes! I’m in need of a check up from the neck up!  Actually a complete physical wouldn’t be that bad either.

My car is “possessed.”  No! Not really, the onboard computer the “protects and serves” the functions of the car, from security and theft prevention to temperature and fuel efficiency, is wacko! More than a new battery or alternator, the circuit board needs to be replaced … what’s the “1967 Theme from Dragnet?”
