Well… health and wealth are intrinsically connected. They go hand-in-hand.
Why? Well, it’s simple.
It you’re not feeling well you’ll simply be less productive. You’ll have less ideas and problem solving abilities and capabilities. It’s likely you’ll be thinking about your body issues rather than fully focusing on the job at hand. You’ll likely also feel less enthusiastic about the job at hand.
That’s why I’ve been looking into various ways to to stay fully fit to be able to accomplish work goals more effectively. I’ve come across various products that I’ve tried and used. I was very happy to come across the www.bluegreen-algae.com site and in particular the Essentials product: www.bluegreen-algae.com/essentials/. For me it was a very effective and convenient product I could take with me ‘on-the-go’ so I’m very happy I’ve found it as it takes care of most of my nutritional supplement needs that I’ve been looking for a long time. However, I believe that everybody’s body have different needs, imbalances and are lacking different things at different times so I urge you to get interested in the subject and find out what your body needs.
Of course regular exercise is very important too. Richard Branson said that daily exercise is the single biggest contributing factor to his success! Now that’s a statement! So exercising at least 3 times a week is highly recommended.
I also see a chiropractor regularly to put everything back into place and straighten things out. As I’m sitting down and looking at a computer screen most of the day this is getting more and more important.
Last but not least the following two points are also very important:
Eat nutritional food (this does not include fatty fast food)
Drink plenty of water. I usually keep a 2 litre bottle of water next to me desk which I habitually have a drink from a few times and hour and the next thing I know is that before my working day has finished I’ve drank over 2 litres.
Think the Gulf Spill Is Bad? Wait Until the Next Disaster
The world knows BP is a disaster, a monster of a disaster. BP’s disaster makes Hurricane Katrina look like a rain shower.
Every time a TV news station shows oil gushing from a broken pipe — one mile below the ocean’s surface — the world gets sick. Scenes of oil-soaked pelicans struggling for life both angers and saddens us. The financial losses endured by small businesses and fishermen cannot be imagined, let alone conveyed by the media interviews. BP is a disaster with a scope beyond comprehension.
I was in England when President Barack Obama blamed and criticized BP for this tragedy. His criticism sparked the anger of the British. Politicians wanted him to tone it down, to be more careful in his choice of words. British Prime Minister David Cameron told Obama not to “go after BP for the sake of it.” Virgin’s Richard Branson said he was “kicking a company while it was on its knees.” Their concern was not for the environment or those suffering the ravages of this disaster. Their concern was for the pensioners who are counting on BP for a secure retirement.
The economy is in trouble, but Richard Duncan has a solution. The chief economist at Black Horse Asset Management has also worked at the World Bank and served as the global Head of Investment Strategy of ABN AMRO Asset Management; his new book is The Corruption of Capitalism. Jack Otter spoke with him about the state of the economy, what we can learn from Japan’s mistakes, and what investors should do to protect themselves.
Warren Buffett and Bill Gates talk to the MBA students at Columbia University in New York. Enjoy the town-hall interview: CNBC: Warren Buffett & Bill Gates – Keeping America Great.
The talk overall was quite interesting. Warren Buffett kept things light with his usual manner of funny and logical humour. His honest answers is one of the many reasons people admire him so much. For example, a woman in the audience asked what industry will be good to be in in future and Bill Gates named a few (IT, Healthcare, Energy…). But Warren said that she should do what she’s passionate about and what she cares about and not what the sectors are going to do well in future, as she’ll most probably do very well and she’ll be happier if she does what she’s passionate about.
More smart people have gone broke through leverage than to any other activity. A smart person can’t go broke unless they use leverage. As one of my friends says: If you’re smart, you don’t need it. And if you’re dumb you’ve got no business using it. So, it just doesn’t make sense.
Investing isn’t gambling, there’s a real distinction. Basically, it’s subjective, but in investment attitude you look at the asset itself to produce the return. So if I buy a farm and I expect it to produce $80 an acre for me in terms of it’s revenue from corn, soya beans etc. and it cost me $600. I’m looking at the return from the farm itself. I’m not looking at the price of the farm every day or every week or every year. On the other hand if I buy a stock and I hope it goes up next week, to me that’s pure speculation.
The Crisis of Credit Visualised Video by Jonathan Jarvis beautifully illustrates how the credit crisis or credit crunch came about. It’s a very well made video that is easy for non-financially literate people to understand.
The video illustrates the relationship between the home-owners, banks, brokers, hedge funds, CDO’s, investment bankers, prime mortgages, sub-prime mortgages etc. and makes it easy for anybody to understand.
