“Men do not die from overwork.  They die from dissipation and worry.”
—Charles Evans Hughes

You can’t simply stop worrying.  You have to replace your worry by thinking about desired results — something good instead of something bad.  Start working on the solution rather than a possible negative outcome.

Thankfully, most of what we worry about never occurs.  The French philosopher Michel Eyquem de Montaigne wrote in the 1500’s, “My life has been filled with terrible misfortune; most of which never happened.”

Worried ThoughtsWhat do you worry about?  I’ve found most people are excellent worriers.  They worry about illness, lack of money, old age, taxes, the next generation — you name it!  They burn up their energy, lower their resistance to illness and actually draw to them what they fear.  Like Job in the Bible, “That which I have feared has come upon me.”

Our hospitals and cemeteries are filled with people who made worry an everyday companion.  Don’t be one of them.  If you suffer from this affliction, you need to cure yourself.  By doing so, you’ll be healthier, live longer, have more fun and produce more of what you want.

I’ll leave with closing thoughts from Norman Vincent Peale:

“Worry is simply an unhealthy and destructive mental habit.”

P.S.  After university, I bought a signage business of my own and operated it for several years.  During this time, I learned the secret to making a small fortune in business.  It’s kind of inside information, and I don’t pass it around to just anybody.  Ready?  Here it is: start out with a large one.  And sooner or later, you’ll have a small one.  😉

This is what keeps me up at night!

I think of this quote: “It is what we don’t know that holds us back.”

I’m always thinking about the things I don’t know that I need to learn for the next step…

Meeting family for the first time can be interesting.  “Will they like me?  Will we get along … how well will we get along?”

Planning a two-week road trip can be a bit daunting.  Implementing those plans when they intersect with real people’s lives … family people … that go to their day jobs, but now you want to meet, and they want to meet with you!  Add in a course correction or two, take in the sites, and to still arrive on time.  Where?  When?  We are meeting who?  Siblings and children of a cousin “neither-has-ever met before today” … now that’s exciting.  It’s even better when the smiles and hugs are genuine.  I don’t know who it was within our group who said it first, “But why wouldn’t we?  We come from good stock!”  I can’t argue with that: The WILLIAM’S family heritage logic…

Here are the specifics of the day as they unfolded … if I get it wrong, I’m sure I will be made to make it right!

We piled into the KIA soon after enjoying our continental breakfast, and checking out of the Chocolate Lake “Best Western.”  Yes, all our luggage was onboard, as we headed east toward Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.  We had a timed stop and meet-up in Antigonish [Tim Hortons], NS with Liann and her daughter Kierra.

Liann is Dione’s sister, whom we met at the airport Saturday when we arrived, and again on Sunday, when we had lunch together.  [Monday we travelled to Liverpool, Tuesday we came back to Halifax, and today, you guessed it is Wednesday.]

We piled into the KIA for a second time, after saying our goodbyes and exchanging even more hugs.  We were informed while visiting in Antigonish that we should not eat anything more as [cousin] Joan and [her daughter] Dione were awaiting our arrival with a “big spread.”  Joan lives in a lovely home, “back in the woods.”

Not exactly, the best of explanations, but it will suit this driver’s tale.  The roads were great, the directions clear, but we still managed to miss the driveway … no problem … spoke to a few neighbors … and off we were again!  This time we didn’t miss the sign.  [Cousin Joan, pictured center below, said she had not see any “outside family” for forty-seven-years!]

Joan was wonderful.  Her hospitality shone throughout … Lady!  You had nothing to worry about.  We all loved you!  I’m sure we could have stayed much later than we did, but unfortunately, we needed to check-in with the proprietors’ of the McIntyre Cottages, located just up the road from Baddeck, NS.  We again unloaded our luggage from the vehicle, checked out our respective cottages, and retired for evening.  Tomorrow morning, after breakfast, we meet up with Joan and Dione to travel the Cabot Trail together in the spacious Sedona.  [Stay tuned into tomorrow when we share our spectacular road trip together.]

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed

Good morning. The rise of retail traders over the past year has likely saved a number of companies from bankruptcy, or helped bankrupt companies bounce back and exit bankruptcy faster.  That’s created a lot of interest in finding short squeeze stocks for big, fast profits.  It’s also driven traders into options to play the trend as well. One area can also be at play for big bucks: Corporate bond markets. Case in point, 2026 bonds for AMC Entertainment (AMC) traded as low as 5 cents on the dollar last year, but have no rallied back to par.  Buyers would have

Good morning. Investors sometime take a very binary approach to stocks.  They’re either all-in on a position, or they’re in cash or a different trade.  Rather than buy all at once, however, astute traders know when to average in.  As long as a company’s prospects don’t fundamentally change, this move allows investors to still have the option of cash, with the ability to buy more shares of a company when the market declines. So while Goldman Sachs (GS) recently warned clients not to buy Monday’s drop, retail investors saw a dip to buy instead.  With stocks hitting resistance at their

Good morning. The stock market was in freefall Monday, much like a mini-version of its March 2020 decline.  Is this the next big sell-off?  Probably not.  Monday’s fears, based on rising mask mandate re-impositions and a few select lockdown threats around the world, are likely being overblown. In the meantime, the bigger market concern is whether or not the current economic growth is sustainable.  The facts are that it will likely slow.  Not the best news, but not the worst news either.  And inflation expectations continue to rise.  But with a lumber market shouting “timber” as it comes back down
