Hi xplorer,
Can we comment on and discuss the articles or do you want to keep it clean with articles only?

The 7 habits of highly effective people - summary video

This is not a psychology article per se, but I do believe it is a great framework for anyone to consider, especially because the principles listed in there are what Covey defined as "common sense".

He went on to say "unfortunately, common sense is not always common practice", which I personally share.


The bottom line of the 7 Habits is to first realize we alone are in complete control of our life and are able to affect its path and then use a framework to achieve whatever target we intend to reach.




I think this is pertinent for all the people who may be tending to blame others for their trading issues. I hope it is useful.

Good thread and interesting stuff, particularly the lbr article. This is such an underrated aspect of life and should be part of a child's upbringing. I was very fortunate to have been trained when I was younger (although I didn't know it at the time!) best thing that has ever happened for my personal development

Grading your mood


Came across the article below in the weekly RadReads newsletter and thought it was interesting. The article talks about doing the exercise in a team setting but I think it could be valuable individually as well and I'll be looking to add it to my daily process.
