First post of the new year

We are already 6 days into the new year.  I dont see much changes happening around and wonder why people blew up so much money boozing, eating, partying away and on firecrackers to bring in the new year.  The first day of the new year was the same.  The sun rose in the east, it felt like just another day. Anyway, if you ask an economist, they will say that its all these foolish spending that fuels the economy.

Generally, when asked for resolutions, i always maintain that “my resolution for this year is to have no resolutions“.  But then i make my secret list every year and work on them.  At the end of the year, i do an analysis to see if things went according to plan or not.  I hardly manage to accomplish around 20-30% of my targets every year and i realise that its a pathetic performance.

This year’s targets are also ambitious (as always).  Not sure if i can make any significant dent in it, but lets see.

Reading a lot is one of the priority this year and am simultaneously reading 2 books, not to mention magazines and other work relate books that i read.

Hope to be much more regular in blogging this year.  Hope the stock markets remain depressed all through the year and give me option to buy lots of good stock at cheaper prices.  Since my investments are for the longer term, i dont mind a few more years of depression / recession.

Its only when there is blood on the streets that you manage to find the best companies to buy.
