Do you get alone-time?
Can you live with noise?
Does noise cover fact?
Can you see the forest for the trees?
Why do I ask?
Do you want your ideas to turn into multibaggers?
Bask in silence.
There’s something about silence.
You don’t need to think.
Thoughts just come.
Eventually, a blockbuster idea appears.
Distracted, you might not even recognize it.
It will come, and go, worthless as it is forgotten.
Alert, you recognize it.
You put it on paper.
You see it.
It was born in silence.
The biggest money can be made when you think like no one has thought before.
Yeah, sometimes I really am.
With very few people, and in very few situations.
Call it Karma.
That’s not the point.
In the event you find yourself in a similar situation, we’re here to size up options.
What do we fall back on?
In its solitude, a thought processes emerges.
What are we looking for?
Cool, calm straight-forward common sense.
It will speak to you.
It’s got the words, remember? You don’t.
Listen to it.
What’s it telling you to do?
Can you do it? A yes is great here. You’re sorted already.
Can you sit tight? Doing nothing? Till your path emerges? Yes is good.
Can you stop yourself from doing the wrong thing?
Violence, anger etc. You got it?
How, you ask?
Occupy yourself with something else more captivating. Possible? A yes here is your last “amicable” option.
If it’s still a no, you might want to consider new company, or a new environment.
Sometimes, we get stuck in life. With a person. And / or in a situation. For good reasons, we can’t get out. What’s the silver lining?
Our difficult situation is ironing out some fault within us. As long as the fault remains, the situation seems desperate. No fault anymore? Situation vanishes.
It’s called evolution.
We don’t evolve for free.
Similarly, we don’t learn to navigate through the markets for free.
Difficult situations teach us. They cost money.
We survive small losses through the learning process, to win big later. We want the learning process to come at an early stage, when the stakes are low.
The biggest wins come when we use our evolution to capitalize upon a difficult situation, because we know its nuances. That’s good for the markets.
In real life it won’t pay to take advantage of somebody’s nuances. That’s actually devolving.
Maintaining perspective between market life and real life is an evolutionary exercise too.
