The Investment Strategy That Makes Your Life Easier
Investing is always hard no matter the environment. It’s hard when stocks are falling because losing money is painful and it always feels like stocks could fall further. And it’s hard when stocks are rising because you have to balance the FOMO that comes from watching others get richer than you with the worry that any day now could be THE top.

The Stock Market Pendulum
The key to the pendulum analogy is to be aware of the risks and behavior that come with market extremes and that, eventually, those excesses revert, so you can adjust your portfolio to a more comfortable allocation. It’s meant to help manage risk not time the market.

How to Temper a Momentum Strategy         
Momentum strategies perform well when markets persistently trend in one direction, allowing past performance to forecast near-term future performance. The most widely accepted reason for this anomaly rests with investor behavior. Market participants likely digest new information more slowly than they should, causing a trend to develop as they incorporate that information into market prices. And that trend can persist after a stock’s price reaches its intrinsic value.

The Stoic Dichotomy of Control
We have control over ourselves and our actions, not others or their actions. In other words, we control our future through the actions we take and how we respond to actions we receive. We control the amount of effort we decide to put into our lives, whether it is creating a product or service. We do not control whether or not our book proposal is accepted by a publisher, but we do control how much effort went into creating that product and making it the best we could. If the book proposal is not accepted or liked, it has not harmed us. We did what was necessary to make it the best we could.

12 Life Lessons From Mathematician and Philosopher Gian-Carlo Rota
A job posting is an introduction to a company. The description on a calendar invite to a meeting is an introduction to that meeting. An about page is an introduction to an author. The subject line on a cold email is an introduction to that message. A course curriculum is an introduction to a class. Putting extra effort into our introductions will help other people make an accurate assessment of whether they want to engage with the full thing. It will prime their minds for what to expect and answer some of their questions.

The Fruits of Friendship
We don’t talk enough about friendship. Friendship gives flavor to life. Rather than treating friendship as a nice-to-have luxury, reserved for people who have their lives in perfect order, we should cultivate friendship intentionally and treat it as the necessity it is. We need to be intentional in our pursuit of it, especially as we age.
Like a marriage, the best friendships require investment, compromise, and sacrifice. By creating shared alignment, trust, and companionship, strong friendships nourish the soul and sharpen the mind.
