Constant battle

By | Main Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

You walk into a store, scan through the aisles then pick up something that you immediately want to buy, then that little voice pops into your head and says that you shouldn’t spend the money. What do you do? This is a reoccurring situation that I have faced dozens of times throughout my life. The difference between instant gratification and long term discipline. We all know what that the smarter financial decision is, but a majority of society still chooses to buy that object. You need to think about the cost of something in more than just numbers, but time. If you’re paid hourly and something costs $20 and you make $10 an hour then you’re essentially buying something for 2 hours worth of your time (which isn’t calculating taxes). Instant gratification will feel good at the moment but you may regret buying the object and feel even worse about it as time goes on. Long term discipline is about the constant grind. You have to figure out what you define as success then the reasons why you want to be successful. You have to want it so bad that you’re willing to give up instant gratification today for the possibility of a better tomorrow….

Must you love your job?

By | Main Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

Back in 2005 Steve Jobs spoke at Stanford’s commencement and urged the graduates to find a job that would allow them to love what they do. Since then people have taken that advice and run with it. Earlier there was a post about the intersection of one’s career interests, internal calling and occupational choice. The author of Eat, Pray, Love Elizabeth Gilbert was on a podcast recently that suggests she disagrees. Gilbert essentially breaks down human activity as job, vocation and hobby. Your hobby, she explains, is one that is fulfilling and delightful no matter what—with or without monetary compensation. A job is just that; it is something people do because they have to, because they need money. And you can have another life completely outside and separate from that which is how and why she argues it is not necessary “love what you do.” Your vacation is a career you care about profoundly. Gilbert was able to write creatively because that was her vocation and so as she received rejection letters from publishers she did not let that deteriorate her self-worth or quality of life because at the end of that day she still had a job that she…

People and Plants

By | Main Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

I was reading a book about ancient lessons that apply to modern ideas of wisdom, when an analogy was made amount plants. The same way plants need water and sunshine, humans need love and work. These two should be in balance, ensuring there is not too much of one without the other in order to lead a happy and healthy lifestyle. In this recipe for happiness, there are several types of work an individual can embark on. There is essentially your job, your career, and your calling. It is possible for your career and your calling to overlap of course and that is the best case scenario. Those people who simply hold job after job, as you can imagine, do not receive motivation intrinsically from this occupation other than the necessity of money; the motivation is survivalist (think: food, water, shelter). Those who are fortunate enough to have found not only a job, but a place they can see themselves ascending a metaphysical ladder are also fortunate. There is much to gain in chasing after a goal, and psychologists have actually performed tests and surveys that prove more dopamine is released when people are “in the zone” completing a task…

The Company you keep

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

John Hall is the Co-founder of Calandar.com and recently wrote an article about the importance of being selective about the people in your life. Due to his background it’s no secret that Hall has worked hard to study time and how people spend and manage it. It’s from his encounters that he was able to publish a piece focused on the things people do to ensure they are around the right people. First on the list is to ask yourself whether the person or people in question make you a better version of yourself. This can be either directly or indirectly, but being around them should encourage you to improve in noble traits like honesty, compassion, patience etc. Next Hall mentions that it’s okay to make sacrifices, but make sure that they pay off—not only in the long run, but also more immediately. Many millionaires spend decades earning what they get to spend during retirement which means they experience quite a bit of lonliness along the way. Enjoy the journey as well as the destination! Another pointer I didn’t think about was keeping people close who care about those you care about. Those people that ask about your family or…

Work Culture

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

The CEO of Viacom recently posted an article commenting on the transformation of the company’s cultures over the years since beginning two decades ago and emphasized the importance of the alignment of the company’s goals with that of its employees. There are plenty of literature aimed at managerial people, but it’s nice to take into account this article because Robert Bakish has been with the company for two decades and has watched the decline of its culture do to notions of “emphasizing short-term results at the expense of longer-term strategy.” He started his mission as CEO to reinvigorating the work culture Viacom had come to be loved for by launching a task force that was focused on figuring out what works and what does. Bakish also mentions that, “We rolled out our first-ever company mission, vision and values built around honesty, bravery and empathy to ensure we were all heading in the same direction.” Progress is measured by the results of the business at the end of the first quarter which has just passed and appears promising. He invited people from worldwide, both in and outside the company to comment on what could be improved (which is important as Viacom…

Lauren Simmons

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

At just twenty-three years old, Lauren Simmons is the youngest woman to be a full-time trader for the New York Stock exchange. In addition to that, she is the second Black woman in 226 years. This is no small feat! While she had her goals in mind, being a pioneer was not one of them. She sought out what she wanted to do and the and the titles came afterward. In an article by CNBC, she refers to her experience as surreal and “if you would have told her five years ago that she’d end up working on Wall Street, she wouldn’t have belied the news herself.” She actually studied genetics and statistics in undergrad, but soon discovered the medical field was not for her. One thing Simmons did know, though, was that she liked numbers. Without studying finance in college Simmons was able to study for a month and pass the exam floor brokers need to earn their badge called Series 19. She taught herself financial principles and shocked everyone when she passed. The full article comments on the “locker room” banter and ambiance of the male dominated broker floor. Everything from the jackets to the far away bathroom…

Presentations and public speaking (TED Talks)

By | loan, Main Blog | No Comments

This is a skill for more than just those people looking to host a TED Talk. However, there is a lot to learn from those who give TED Talks. It’s not that all the topics involve pop culture or are universally interesting. Rather, it’s because those that are good at them follow a formula. You want to make a connection with the audience, not only as a whole, but to the individuals as well. This can be done with five simple steps (in fact, there are TED Talks on how to give a TED Talks, but we won’t go into those paradigms now). First step is to create a story. One of the most successful speech makers is Steve Jobs who would seldom tell his audience to buy his product. What he did instead was, tell a story involving the Apple product and then voila!—the audience was captivated and moved enough to invest. The next step involves using humor keeping in mind that senses of humor vary. Go with safe and charming jokes because everyone loves to laugh. Don’t make a joke at the expense of someone else, but if you’re willing to make fun of yourself people usually like…
