Everybody talks about happiness these days. I had somebody count the number of books with “happiness” in the title published in the last five years and they gave up after about 40, and there were many more. There is a huge wave of interest in happiness, among researchers. There is a lot of happiness coaching. Everybody would like to make people happier. But in spite of all this flood of work, there are several cognitive traps that sort of make it almost impossible to think straight about happiness.

The Daily Routines of Geniuses – by Sarah Green

Juan Ponce de León spent his life searching for the fountain of youth. I have spent mine searching for the ideal daily routine. But as
years of color-coded paper calendars have given way to cloud-based scheduling apps, routine has continued to elude me; each day
is a new day, as unpredictable as a ride on a rodeo bull and over seemingly as quickly.

Naturally, I was fascinated by the recent book, Daily Rituals: How Artists Work. Author Mason Curry examines the schedules of 161
painters, writers, and composers, as well as philosophers, scientists, and other exceptional thinkers.

As I read, I became convinced that for these geniuses, a routine was more than a luxury — it was essential to their work. As Currey
puts it, “A solid routine fosters a well-worn groove for one’s mental energies and helps stave off the tyranny of moods.” And although the book itself is a delightful hodgepodge of trivia, not a how-to manual, I began to notice several common elements in the lives of the healthier geniuses (the ones who relied more on discipline than on, say, booze and Benzedrine) that allowed them to pursue the luxury of a productivity-enhancing routine: Read the complete article here:Daily Routines of Geniuses:LINK here

4. YOUR MONEY More: The Motley Fool Personal  – Finance: One-Sentence Financial Rules

There are 56,956 personal finance books on Amazon.com. In aggregate, they contain more than 3 billion words. This seems absurd,
because 99% of personal finance can be summarized in nine words: Work a lot, spend a little, invest the difference. Master that,
and the other 2.999 billion words are filler.

The most important finance topics don’t require details. Most can be, and should be, summarized in a sentence or two.

Here are some I’ve learned:

1. Dollar-cost average for your entire life and you’ll beat almost everyone who doesn’t.

2. Only invest in products and companies you can explain to a six-year old.

3. Every five to seven years, people forget that recessions occur every five to seven years.

4. You’re twice as biased as you think you are (four times if you disagree with that statement).

5. Read more books and fewer articles.

6. Read more history and fewer forecasts.

7. It’s strange that you go to the doctor once a year, but check your investments once a day.
