My plan for today was to concentrate on a rethink of my approach to the work of investing (not the strategy), and to mix that up with blog writing and pc game playing. I did all that, but the heavy rain threw another (wet) iron into my fire.
While I drank my morning coffee, I completed the drafting of a blog article titled "Stock Panic Nets Me 13% Overnight" -- which I posted later in the day.
Today I did not divide my activities into time blocks. Instead I did 2 hours on, 2 hours off back and forth between my work (the investing work approach redo) and my fun (the blogging and pc game playing). Throw in the hour or so that it takes to take care of all the critters around here and that was my day.
I developed a new investing work approach that will change it from feeling like it is a part-time job* to feeling like it is a hobby. It all had to do with taking the time-urgency pressure to reinvest gains and dividends off the table -- which I have now done.
I drafted another blog article based on the introspection that led me to deciding to change my mental approach to my investing. That one, which I titled "Should I Still Work at Investing?", I will post this Friday or Saturday**.
Today was also the day that very heavy rain seeped in, wetting both the basement and the "patio room" floors.[/b] We thought we had the patio room seepage taken care of. Back to the drawing board!
