Being ever cognizant that energy input must equal energy output or else fat accumulates, I must be judicious with my food consumption.
I thought the purpose of growing up was to inculcate people with the ability to balance on all 3 legs of the stool. I'm having trouble teetering on simply the first pillar.
I've really gotten into a stock trading strategy that I discovered during the FIN 502 portion of my MBA crucible.
In brief, it's merely buying preferred shares below their call price and just holding on until they are called. That way I receive the usually substantial dividends and a nice little ancillary bonus when they are called. And if they are not called, then I'll have what amounts to veritable perpetual annuity, which ain't a bad situation to be in at all.
This is in addition to my basic foreign and domestic portfolio of foreign oil tanker stocks (high dividend yield) and Arizona municipal bond funds (preferential tax treatment) and foreign bond funds (better to be a creditor than a debtor on the international stage). If the federal government won't do it, then it's the private-sector's duty to pick up the slack. IMHO, I'll follow that old aphorism: be the change you want to see in others.
But hey, i'm an old school/new school free marketeer. (Incidentally that's why I went to business school-- to be a better investor) My MBA program was not tailored to what I wanted; so, I just learned what I wanted to learn and went along to get the degree.
Take more risks: From my biological background, I'm cognizant that there are only two states in life, growth (presupposes some level of risk-taking) or death/atrophy (I'm too young, haven't lived enough, to die or diminish at all whatsoever).
Meet more people/get out more: I've started reconnecting with a friend from elementary through high schools. Something good's gotta arise from this. That's the predicate from which I am working.ike Dobb
Be more like Dobie Grey and "Take it Real Easy": At this point on the story arc, I should be in to the denouement portion of my plot.
