A great quote for Traders / Entrepreneurs ( & all people in general)
Someone in chatroom shared this today & thought would be great to share with other traders since we sit at our desks so many hours in a day and that’s not always a good thing (healthwise).
As some of you know I’ve had my share of health problems so I do follow many of the things on this list, but recently got diagnosed with some higher cholesterol than normal so have to try and balance trading, business, family and my health a bit better.
Remember its not always about the money & you need a balance in the other parts of your life or you will never be truly successful. I find it very helpful to create goals for each of those categories and try to do something each day that helps me achieve & surpass those goals. Its something i’ve done since I was still in university and its worked great for me. Also very critical that you review those goals & outcomes. I try to review my trades weekly & monthly. I also do a Yearly Recap of my goals and how well I did. My goal into 2012 will definitely include more health related goals.
Hope you find this helpful,
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present.; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
