Steve Jobs made many powerful statements.
But one sticks out for me.
The founder of one of the world’s most successful tech companies said:
‘Technology is nothing.’
It’s not as ironic as it sounds.
I sleep 6.5 hours a night.
That’s about average for people in my age group.
That leaves around 17 hours awake each day.
Or about 1,000 minutes.
How do you use yours?
Earlier this month, the Bank of England raised interest rates for only the second time since 2007.
For the first time in almost 10 years, interest rates are above half a percent.
Now it’s at 0.75%.
The last time it was higher than this, was February 2009 (when it was 1%).
But it’s also still lower than at any point in history before then.
And if Bank of England chief economist Andy Haldane’s research is correct, “any point” means roughly 5,000 years.
So – what does it all mean?
Dwight Eisenhower was the 34th President of the United States.
He lived one of the most productive lives imaginable.
Do you know his secret?
David Pitt-Watson is a fund industry insider.
He’s worked in asset management for years.
It’s made him question the point of using active fund managers at all.
The layers of the brain manifest in everyday life.
They affect our emotions.
The questions we ask.
The choices we make.
And impact our finances…
An optimist wakes up knowing things are broken.
And more will break.
But he endures, aware things will improve.
Is this you?
James Clear recently defined grit.
"It’s the perseverance and passion to achieve long–term goals".
As a graduate from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst – this area fascinates me.
Mental toughness can be the difference between success and failure.
Financial, or otherwise.
