NASA announced today that Kepler (its alien world-hunting spacecraft) has discovered two previously unknown planetary systems, including three super-Earth size planets in the much-coveted “habitable zone” – capable of sustaining human life.
It’s really only a matter of time now (with such advancements in technology ) that we finally put to rest the age-old question of our human origins, and make the “connection with the stars” as did our ancient ancestors.
Putting things in perspective – there are more stars in our universe ( each with their own planetary systems ) than the combined total of every single grain of sand on the entire plan Earth. The discovery of these two “Earth like planets” is only the beginning – as we continue to reach further and further out. We will find life – and we will find it soon.
It’s things like this that keep me small, humble. We get wrapped up in our day-to-day lives, the decisions, the stress, the pressure we may put on ourselves, when in the grand scheme of things – we’re not just a tiny grain of sand, but one of billions of tiny people – on that tiny grain.
Consider the significance of a poor trading decision. One decision….. in a day filled with decisions, in a life filled with decisions.
I’m pretty sure you’ll be O.K.
Indeed. Dont sweat the petty things. Certainly dont pet the sweaty things either.
Love this blog. Keep it up Kong.
You are super positive! Awesome!
As a newbie i find it difficult sometimes to maintain perspective. I judge my performance on the outcome of the trade instead of whether i had followed my system.
Hi Pot Stock Watch, I have been following your site & comments since october 2012. This is a great learning curve for me.
However, I have one question re EUR/.USD. If I may follow in this topic for a moment. On or about the 25th of March you commented that your intention was to long EU @ 1.3170. Did you follow through with this as pa did approach that zone recently?
No I didn’t / haven’t taken the trade Leonardo – and here’s why.
During this time period since I originally looked at it – some larger fundamentals have now entered the picture, as U.S data continues to disapoint, and the spring/summer is soon upon us. Ive been scaling out of most everything, and havent been looking at taking on much risk here.
Technically the level still looks reasonable – but at this point its unlikely I’ll trade it.
Nice post, Kong. Have a great weekend!
Have a good weekend as well.
