Quote of the Day

 For one of highest paid actresses in Hollywood,  Julia Roberts has always struck me as being surprisingly levelheaded.    In the latest issue of Allure,  she shares:  “The key to beauty is always to be looking at someone who loves you, really.”

Amen.

Quote of the Day

We spend so much time smoothing things out, we lose the opportunity for change, or for texture or creativity.

Instead of working so hard to make everything okay, perhaps it is more helpful to work hard at living with a world that rarely is.

Invest and Hold

“The stock market is presenting you with one of the great buying opportunities of your lifetime – perhaps the greatest. Stop trying to pick the bottom.”

That’s what 41-year market veteran Steve Leuthold, of the Leuthold Group, just told his clients.   In order words,  INVEST, don’t DIVEST!

If you feel that you don’t have either the inclination nor the patience to research and cherry-pick choice stocks,  then why not set aside some funds to invest in index funds?    Remember,  you don’t need to get the timing exactly right.  It’s time to buy for the next decade.  =)

Another Quote of the Day

I was going through my long list of unread emails today and came across this:

Auditor’s one line report on Lehman Brothers Balance sheet:

“There are two sides of a Balance Sheet, Left and Right (Assets and Liabilities, respectively):
 On the Right side, there is nothing right; and on the Left side, there is nothing left”.

Secrets of Adulthood

Gretchen Rubin has released another short video in which she lists what she has learned over the years.  The most profound for me, aside from “The days are long, but the years are short”,  is “You can choose what you do; you can’t choose what you LIKE to do.”   Personally, this is particularly true during these times when the uncertainty generated by the global economic (and political) turmoil has led people to choose to stick to jobs which they might no longer necessarily like.
