Weekend reading: where the wild things are

What caught my eye this week. T he speculative stock sell-off I flagged up at the start of December has started to chip away at the markets more widely. The US Nasdaq index is more than 10% 14% off its highs. Several mega-cap tech shares – a big chunk of the US indices, and hence a meaningful stake in global tracker funds – are down about the same, too. Microsoft and Meta (née Facebook) are 10-20% off their highs. The biggest, Apple, is getting there. And ‘FANG’ stock Netfli...

Leadercast’s Angela Duckworth Discusses Grit as the Key to Leadership Success

When psychologist and science author Angela Duckworth spent time serving as a high school math teacher, she noticed a prominent gap existed between what a kid was capable of doing and what they actually did . Curious about this disconnect, Angela has since spent countless hours studying why the smartest and most talented people in the room aren’t necessarily the most successful. What she found over years of research was that success is not determined by your ability to learn easily a...

Weekend reading: The office

What caught my eye this week. W ill we or won’t we? Go back the office that is. Although I say ‘we’ to give the vibe that we’re all in this together. But rather like a backyard reveler in Downing Street during a pandemic, I walk to my own beat. More than 20 years ago I discovered I could mostly do my job from home, and more efficiently too. “Sod the office!” quoth I. “And be damned with the commute.” Perhaps I capped my (traditional) career prospects, but I never looked back in terms of qualit...

People who achieve their goals share key traits. They're proactive, have clarity, and ask for help, says the author of a book on the subject.

Rebecca Stephens.Rebecca Stephens People who achieve goals share many traits, said the author of a book about long-term strategies.   As well as being proactive and clear, they were also very driven and initiated projects themselves.

She then went on to achie...

Weekend reading: Will the stock market go up in 2022?

What caught my eye this week. A ll of us know that a calendar year is an arbitrary period over which to measure non-astronomical progress. That’s true whether you’re looking at an expanding portfolio or a shrinking waistline. Or, worse, the opposite! Yet 90% of us do it anyway. Far be it from me to take the high ground here. Not when one of my favourite rituals of the quiet New Year is resetting my return tracking spreadsheet. I love pressure washing the slate clean. Percentages gained and los...

How to Decide Whether to Buy a Book

Most of my senior business clients read regularly. But I’ve been surprised on numerous occasions by how few books they read over a year. Though lack of time is the typical response, there’s another response that’s rarely mentioned. But by questioning them and making suggestions, I’ve figured out why they limit their reading. They don’t know if a book is worth their time. Actually, there are several rather simple ways to figure out that issue. The obvious first response is that you usually want t...

Grit, Resilience and Determination

I am returning to a topic that I have talked a lot about on this blog. A number of years ago at our annual CEO Summit, we had Angela Duckworth speak to our portfolio about Grit, the topic of her excellent book on the subject. In Angela’s research, she determined that the single greatest determinant of success was not talent. It was grit. I was reminded of that last night as I watched Derek Rose lead the New York Knicks to a must win in game two of their series against the Atlanta Hawks. T...

My life philosophy: 52 lessons from 52 years

And now we are 52… On this day in 1969, baby J.D. entered the world. I don't think there's any way my parents could have predicted the path their firstborn would take through life. It hasn't always been easy — no thanks to the obstacles I've placed in my own way — but I've really had a wonderful (and interesting) life, and I look forward to whatever time is left me. As I do every year here at Get Rich Slowly, I'm going to commemorate my birthday by sharing some of the most important things I've ...

The 6 Types of Grit (And How to Develop Them)

We all want to be better than we are today.  And that often requires pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone, even when you don’t feel like it. It requires getting back up and trying again and again when you fail. It requires sticking with a path long enough to see it through.  In short, becoming a better man requires grit .  The concept of grit has become well-known in recent years, due to the efforts of psychologist Angela Duckworth, who has spent her career trying to figure out w...
