“No one ever made a decision because of a number.  They need a story.” —Daniel Kahnerman

The Survival Organ

Retrain Your MindThe human brain is a survival organ.  Its purpose is to keep us alive.  It generally does a pretty good job, seeing as we are alive now while we read these tips.
The brain has automatic programs, such as fear, to keep us safe.
Unfortunately, the human brain is not a good “thinking organ.”  It hasn’t mastered that yet.  We shouldn’t talk to the brain with facts.
Our brains prefer to learn through stories.  Stories rock!
Ask ourselves, “How much of our factual presentation can we turn into stories?”
Look at the top leaders.  Most of them are great storytellers.  That could be a hint.

Happy Thursday to you!

Ready for some major motivation to kick butt, take names, and chew gum?

Here are the 11 questions you need to answer:

Kick Butt for real

  1. There’s no good time.  Now is the time.
    What are you waiting for?
  2. Put out your best material.  For free.
    Do you want to be SHARED or SCARED?
  3. YOU may be your biggest obstacle.
    What would happen if you got out of the way?
  4. Stop STARTING things and get more into DOING.
    What can you DO today — right now?
  5. A few may wish to see you fail.  A lot more are rooting for your success
    Where is your attention?
  6. Forget the word vision.
    Better: What do you SEE in your future?
  7. Go Team Go!You’re aiming too low.
    How can you elevate your sights, your fees, and your value?
  8. Stop blaming others.  It’s ALL your fault.
    Move on — what’s next?
  9. A bend in the road is never the end — unless you fail to turn.
    Where do you need to turn?
  10. It’s not what you think it is.  And it’s bigger than you think it is.
    Why not embrace that?
  11. There are no silver bullets, secret sauces, or magic beans.
    Now what’s your plan?

What you need is a healthy dose of reality from those 11 answers — and we’re here to help.  😉

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

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
