Pet CartoonGood morning.
The Nasdaq and S&P 500 have hit new record highs this week.  But it doesn’t feel like a bull market.  Why?  That’s because the market is undergoing a rotation.  Tech stocks started underperforming at the start of the year, as other sectors took the lead.  Some tech names are heading higher now, but there’s no clear sign that tech is taking the lead.
This rotation is a healthy sign that when the feeling of a sideways market is over, the market will trend higher.  That’s the good news.  The bad news?  Periodic sell-offs might be just enough to scare out investors of stocks that have the potential to move a lot higher.  Traders may not want to get overly leveraged here, if stocks are only going to move gradually higher, and some trades on the short side can do well here.  But when markets are in a sideways pattern, the key trap to avoid is boredom.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

ActuallyGood morning.
The market sees volatility come back with a 2.5% drop in the S&P 500.  While that’s not exactly a world-beater, it is an indication that the accumulation of negative data may be starting to weigh on the Bulls.  While bulls can be strong, there’s only so much weight they can carry before the bears can take them down.

Is Work-Life Balance a Myth?

…Disorganized?  Burnt out?  Behind?  Rushed?

Lookin’ for work life balance tips¹ … It’s safe to say that you love your BUSINESS and your FAMILY.

If you often wrestle with the concept of “work-life balance,” then allow us the opportunity to burst the bubble: It’s a cultural myth.  It’s overrated.  It’s a fundamentally flawed, unachievable concept.  The notion of work-life balance suggests that we should have this perfect balance between our personal and professional responsibilities at any given time.

This couldn’t be further from the truth for the over-whelming majority of folks, and here’s the even more critical part: Life is seasonal.  In other words, there may be seasons when the scales tip in favor of our professional responsibilities and aspirations, and there may be seasons when our personal lives take priority.

It’s not all or nothing; it’s just not necessarily 50-50.  And what works for one person, may not work for you.  And what works for you today, may not work for you down the road.  And the seasons of life can also extend to your spirituality, relationships, health, fitness and other aspects of life.

Now, that’s not to say that you should ever neglect these key areas.  After all, it’s not about how much time.  It’s about being intentional with your time.  As Hillary DePiano said, “We all get the same 365 days.  The only difference is what we do with them.”

And we all get the same 24 hours.  Are you living intentionally with yours?  Are you present when you’re with your family?  Are you zeroed in on the opportunity at hand?  Or, are you distracted by everything else you could be doing?

As Paul wrote in the book of Colossians, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart.”  Said differently, wherever you are, be there.  Or, as Mark Batterson put it in his book Play the Man, “Do it like your life depends on it.”  Whether it’s physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or relationally, leave it all on the court.

Intentional living, according to John Maxwell, is key to “choosing a life that matters,” and like many of you have experienced, fatherhood refines, humbles, and promotes growth — for everyone.  Quit aiming for someone else’s idea of balance, and focus your target on living intentionally.

“Be present in all things and thankful for all things.” – Maya Angelou

To your balance,

Secrets Of Inner Power

Before you close this post and go on with your day or night… there’s something I’d like you to take a moment to think about.

Success is like an iceberg.

Most of us only see the 10% that’s visible above the surface: the nice house, the expensive clothes, the fancy car.

But most of us never see the 90% that’s under the surface.  All the hard work, good fortune, and mindset that go into keeping that success afloat.

So we focus on trying to achieve the part we can see.  And we wonder why we never quite manage to create the life that we want.

Can you relate?

This training is designed to help you understand what’s going on under the surface.

It’s going to help you discover the root cause that determines whether you struggle in life… or you succeed. 

If you’ve ever found yourself wondering why you haven’t got the results you have always hoped for… then T. Harv Eker International has the home-study course for you… entitled, Secrets Of Inner Power.

This is my P.S. reminder to review Harv’s previous material before committing to anything further!

Do You Have A Purpose? It’s true that in order to live our purpose in this world, we’ve got to have a vision and a plan for achieving our dreams.  We must be tenacious in working toward our goals, and we might occasionally have to sacrifice a little sleep for that dream.  However, our “hustle at any cost” culture has convinced us that this means choosing between success and quality of life (e.g. health, happiness and fulfillment).  This either/or mindset is not just inaccurate — it actually threatens our bottom lines and secretly sabotages success. The stress, exhaustion and decision

Good morning. Shortages or not, we’ve all seen rising prices on store shelves as a sign of inflation.  In some cases, prices have stayed the same, but the size of a package has shrunk.  This is a way to mask higher prices through a process known as shrinkflation.  But there are other ways to note the bite of higher price as well.  One such way?  The loss of amenities. For example, many hotels are now ditching their complimentary breakfasts.  While such food wasn’t necessarily good, it was a way to entice travelers to stay at a low additional cost.  With

Good morning. We’ve noted a few times over the past few months to get that holiday shopping done extra early this year thanks to supply chain disruptions.  But given some of the latest delays and reports from companies reporting earnings this year, the next thing on your holiday shopping list just might be groceries. While we’re not seeing the toilet paper shortage of last year, shortages in chicken, fish sticks, coffee among other food staples appear likely in the coming weeks.  And products such as diapers are seeing high demand right now as well.  Even if those shortages are resolved,

Good morning. The stock market has a number of seasonal patterns to it.  While it’s well-known that stocks tend to rally into the end of the year, in what’s known as the “Santa Claus” rally, that rally tends to start earlier than many expect.  This year, the start date is likely the first day of November, less than two weeks away. Why?  Because right now we’re in the midst of earnings season, when company insiders are locked out from buying or selling shares.  Companies are also in a lockout period for share buybacks.  And it’s those buybacks that have been

Good morning. Bull markets end on euphoria, but not until they’ve gone on far longer than many expect.  That seems to be the case in the commodity markets right now.  While traders are still considering that the price of a barrel of oil may hit $100, some are starting to bet that will just be a stop along the way to $200 per barrel, which would be a new all-time high for the commodity. And thanks to the recent uranium rally, a new fund that will hold physical uranium has been announced to take advantage of that move.  The announcement
