Get On With Your Life

“We are traveling together on this planet in the middle of an infinite universe, trying to stay linked to our families, our communities, and ourselves in a way that brings meaning to our lives.

This journey is a little different for each of us, but in the end, most of us would probably agree that it is the connection to other people in our lives that matters most of all.”

From The Coffeehouse Investor – How to Build Wealth, Ignore Wall Street, and Get On With Your Life.  

If you think The Coffeehouse Investor approach to building portfolios makes sense from a financial standpoint, you’re right. It does.

As I pointed out in last week’s newsletter, returns are maximized by capturing the performance of each asset class within your portfolio through low-cost index and passively managed funds.

But for Coffeehouse Investors, the real benefit is not in the returns generated, but in the emotional freedom that allows us to get on with our lives, without needing to focus on the daily ups and downs of the market. And since it’s summer, think about using that time to daydream, spend time with loved ones, or any other activity that brings happiness into your life.

Looking for inspiration? The New York Times explains the benefits for daydreaming and why friendships can change economic mobility.  

If you find yourself stressed with the market's volatility, let's strategize and build a plan that provides the emotional freedom you need.
