Life is short and unexpected. A question I have for your thought and consideration is this - What brings you peace and joy?
I have the great opportunity to meet and visit with some talented and gifted people on a daily basis. As I get to know them, a common trait becomes visible. They talk about a host of things they love to do to get away from the complex world we live in.
So, I wondered.
What do you do to remove yourself from this complex world?
Do you go to movies, do charitable work, visit family members, visit those who are sick, attend a play, exercise, read a book or take a nap?
What activities are on your peace and joy list? How often do you do these activities?
When the financial capital markets are volatile, I encourage you to find and do at least one or two things on your list that allow you to decompress or de-stress – which will bring you peace and joy.
Checking your investment accounts 2-3 times a day only creates deep anxiety and stress. Remember investing is a long-term journey measured in miles not inches on a ruler.
It’s important to go out there and live your one life you have been given and make it count.
