Entry #18 in my Investing: The New Rules column was recently posted to the Death by 1,000 Papercuts site. It is called Doom — And Boom!
Juicy Excerpt: It puts the focus in the wrong place to dwell on downer stuff. We’ve made a mess of our economy and our retirement accounts. Let’s fix them! Let’s rebuild! When we start doing life-affirming stuff, we will feel better and more energized with each passing day. When we focus on our troubles, it makes us want to roll up in a ball and take a nap until the dark clouds pass. Nothing gets done.
