    ^This is actually one of those pearls of wisdom that can be Life changing. I once read an article that a habit takes 30-60 days to form, depending on the complexity of the habit.

    Bravo and thank you to you Skate :)

    (IMHO) My trading account is at the moment 100% cash & shopping for me is about to start..

    Buying stocks
    The problem is that we tend to think about buying stocks in much the same way we buy ordinary products. Usually when we go shopping for things, we want to pay less for that item than what someone else paid. If you buy “cheaper” than everyone else, you can take comfort in finding the ultimate bargain.

    Big mistake

    However, it is a mistake to apply that same logic to the stock market. Stocks aren’t like a new pair of pants or a Tee shirt. Their real worth changes dramatically over time.

    Effort should always be applauded, but care should be taken when rewarding mediocrity, lest it becomes the goal.

    Yep, good is not good when better is expected.

    Good is not good, when better is required.
    What was that old saying, something like, if you want to climb a mountain don't aim for half way up, because that is what you will achieve.

    sptrawler, is that the correct quote "Good is not good, when better is required"

    I'm just shooting from the hip, quoting from memory & most times just mouthing off.

    Being impulsive

    We all have impulses to do things, and many times they are not in our best interest.

    Motto
    Live & learn.

    I don't know I just made it up, what I was meaning was, Australia is falling behind in most academic measures.
    All we seem to do is lower the standard for excellence, it is a bit like addressing the obesity crisis, by changing the numbering on clothing.

    The standard for excellence
    sptrawler, to a great degree you are correct, but our success or failure in life is a function of our luck. We like to think that our results are a direct consequence of our insight and efforts, but the reality is that luck plays a big part in how we do. No matter how smart we are, circumstances, and developments along the way shape us into who we are.

    Skate.

    Skate.

    All of the above becomes instinct

    IF

    Your taught it as a Child.
    Its a school culture and

    Your circle has the same values.

    This should be a responsibility of ALL Parents!

    This will set your Kids on the right path.
    If you instil it at home
    Place your kids in schools where its common place
    You wont have to care to much about their circle.

    Its starts and Finishes in my view with YOU

    "Its starts and Finishes in my view with YOU"

    Programmed and set in stone
    tech/a you are right and right on the money once again, our core Belief System refers to the idea that our thoughts, feelings and actions are programmed and set in stone.

    We get immediate improvements in how we think, feel, act and live when learning from others.

    tech/a said "Its starts and Finishes in my view with YOU" ( IMHO - its always up to you)

    Our belief system is so deeply ingrained in us, but if people are open to new idea there would be change for the better in them by moving out negative behaviour & ideas and replacing them with positive ones.

    What pleases them
    People believe what it pleases them to believe & its the main reason most won't entertain change

    I work on the same principal, I just 'shoot from the hip', my own thoughts.
    Right or wrong, I don't know, because they are subjective.
    I feel I've grown through the school of hard knocks, so I tend to be blunt, I've never been one to use a hundred word when two will do.

    My favourite Two words.

    No.

    Try it!

    My vent : Google provides incredible reporting and analysis tools for websites/marketing and sales.

    Just wish all these so called digital marketers had the brains/capability to understand how to set them up correctly.

    Frustrated and pissed off that everyone calls themselves an expert in IT after working in a job of 3 years, but very few learn the skills and keep learning, to be called an expert after 15 years or 10,000 hours

    Everyone is a F--king expert these days.

    satanoperca, there lies the problem 'people don't keep learning' and the other problem as I see it (IMHO) - they don't put themselves in the shoes of others.

    Meaning
    They don't see the problem from another perspective. "they don't put themselves in the shoes of others".

    Silver Shoes
    I gave 52 staff members a pair of miniature 'silver shoes' to remind them of this fact.

    Smile on your dial
    Another compulsory work condition, when in the company of others "put a smile on your dial"

    More importantly
    Put a 'smile on your dial' when speaking on the phone - people can hear smiles. (its first rule in conditioning people)

    Skate.
