Day 50

It’s so easy to become disorganized.

Your house is a mess. You aren’t sleeping. You are groggy in the morning. Hungry throughout the day. And you are tired all the time. No amount of sleep is enough. And no amount of relaxation is enough to recharge. Something is…

Day 49

Everyone needs space to change. When you don’t have time, you go and do what works. You preserve what you can, do what you are able to, and go and get done what you can.

When you are in do or die mode, you don’t have the luxury…

Day 48 (Writing Everyday)

We may get antsy if our progress is delayed. If we think we should be able to do something, but we are unable to do it, we are willing to beat our heads against a wall until we finish the problem with middling success.

Doing this…

Day 47 (Writing Everyday)

If you want to keep your habits, make sure you do them. If you do them everyday, it’ll become an ingrained habit. You’ll work hard to maintain it. Not doing so won’t feel right. It’s better to phone it in and do it, than not do it.

Day 46 (Writing Everyday)

Just as background, I’ve been an avid trader for almost a decade. I started pretty young, and even got 2nd place in my high-school stock trading project.

Day 45 (Writing Everyday)

There is a lot of truth to this. People are so focused…

Day 44 (Writing Everyday)

Appropriately planning items…

Day 43

What does someone do about tiredness? Work and tiredness. Do they go hand in hand? I will honestly say, it’s beena. while since I’ve been more tired of work. I feel like this sort if mental exhaustion is unwarranted. Something is sapping my energy. I need to figure out what it is.

Right now, it seems like no matter what the motivation is, I deflate. If I turn off my brain, and my emotions, I can churn out work.

I wonder what is it, that’s causing me to deflate? Because it’s affecting my life during, and after work.

I meed to fix this.

Day 42

One of the most important resources to manage is your mental energy. If you are out, there isn’t much you can do.

So manage it. Make sure to keep that energy up. Ensure that you use your limited energy on the important things. If you do that, you can keep making progress. If you are almost out of energy, take a break and recuperate.

Day 41 (Writing Everyday)

As a stock runs up, risk reward decreases. Make sure to appropriately scale out when risk increases. Do not lever in more as a stock runs. It’s generally a bad ideas as it ruins your risk/reward.

If you win big, get out. Increasing your lever after winning, is just asking for a win to turn into a loss.
