Just Because The Dow Was Down 6% In 2018 Does Not Mean All Investors Lost Money. No Sire.

No, my stock investments did NOT lose money in 2018. They actually appreciated, as they should. I have not lost money on the stock market in quite a few years. {Smile}.

No, it wasn’t luck. Much of it was patience, prudence and sanguinity. When I was younger I used to panic and start selling when the market went down. Well, after nearly 30-years I finally learnt. And towards the end I was inspired by two elderly gentleman, both close to 80, who had done very well as investors. I learnt from them. They were long term investors. Buying and holding ‘solid’ stock for years without constantly trading and chasing the latest fad/trend.

Their wisdom finally dawned on after I turned 55. I started thinking long-term and strategically.

That I stayed FULLY invested during the financial carnage of 2008 — 2012 helped. Proved to me that I can weather the worst downturns and still survive. Of course, those of us who suffered during those 4-years came out of it stronger and then started reaping rapid gains soon after. That was a nice boost.

I do a lot of options BUT I don’t churn stock. I buy and hold for years and I have bought well. {Smile}

Yes, sometimes I do think I should share with others my investing insights. But, I am not licensed etc. So, alas, I have to keep much of my strategy to myself.

But, please, going forward THINK — ‘be patient’, ‘be sanguine’, ‘try not to panic’, ‘think long’, ‘buy-and-hold’.

Happy New Year. Good investing. 2019 will be a better year I hope — for YOUR sake.

Time To THINK About Your ‘Full Year’ Resolution For 2019 — And What Better Than ‘Think A Day’.

by Anura Guruge

How many New Year resolutions have YOU given up on? Have you ever thought about that.

Calling it a ‘New Year resolution‘ is a bad start. Think of it as a ‘Full Year resolution‘. You want to stick to it all year and make it a part of your life.

I have said this before and I will unashamedly say it again. When it comes to resolutions only one — and one alone — matters and makes sense, And that is the resolution that you are going to gift yourself the privilege of THINKING.

You are what you think; thinking is what you are.

THINK A Day 2019.

Gift yourself that — A THINK A Day 2019.

Think about it.

The more you THINK about it the more you will see the benefits and joy.

The Joy of Thinking.

IBM & I, in our own separate ways, were into ‘THINKING‘ before our paths intersected in 1974. I was thinking well ahead of joining IBM, and IBM was encouraging folks to think decades prior to my birth.

IBM did not encourage me to think, but working there made me truly appreciate that THINKING was a good thing.

I am glad that IBM is having a ‘Think 2019‘ Conference.

The Gift Of Thought, The Most Thoughtful Gift Of All.

by Anura Guruge





If you think about it, even for a second, you will realize that the GIFT of thought is priceless. The most thoughtful gift of all.

It is easy to tell people: ‘I think of you‘, ‘thinking of you‘, or ‘you are always on my thoughts‘.

But, if YOU give them the GIFT of thought, they will appreciate that you really do care. It show that you care.

So, consider giving the GIFT of thought. Just THINK about it.
