How to Eat Stocks, Small Caps in 2016, and more...
Jan 6, 2016

Some think I am a boring person...that I feel no excitement about the New Year...that I don't go out to party...that I don't have a list of new year resolutions.

Let me present my case.

First, the first of January is not the only new year day in India. Wikipedia names at least 16 new year days in India celebrated at different times of the year across various regions.

Second, why do you have to wait for a new year to make resolutions...to make personal transformations...to expand your wealth?

Isn't every single day an immense opportunity to say 'Yes' to life...to take one small step towards the life of your dreams?

Do great achievers wait for New Year's Eve to make changes in the way they live, work, and invest?

I don't think so.

But there is one very interesting story from last week that I feel compelled to share with you.

On the first of January, 2016, as I exchanged phone calls and messages with friends and relatives, I thought of reconnecting with an old friend from school. I tried calling him in the evening, but the phone kept ringing. Then I got busy with other things and forgot about it.

Two days later, my phone rang. It was the old friend!

'What happened? Where were you? I tried reaching you the other day. Is everything all right?' I enquired.
