Found this interesting pushback article in my Facebook:

Why millennials should ignore career advice from Boston Consulting Group boss

Before I go on, I would strongly recommend you read the original career advice from the BCG boss – the link is inside the article above.

If you are now in your 20s or early 30s, which career advice appeals to you more? Don’t think! Just follow your instincts! Say it out!

For those of you who are in shepherd positions in your 40s and 50s, what say you? Of course you knew the answer already – if not you won’t be where you are today…

Investing edge

If you can’t poke holes when reading other people’s investing thesis; or you have a habit of blocking out the opposing viewpoints – stop asking why stock prices have gone against you!

When I have a strong investing thesis, I don’t seek out those who agree with me. What’s the point in that?

Joy is when I can find opposing views to my stock convictions!

First I’ll do my best to turn to shreds those contrarian voices. If I fail, that’s an easy tell my original thesis was probably half-baked…

Ego bruised; but saved myself a few bucks. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy…

For those times I stood my ground, I’ll put my money where my mouth is. Skin in the game!

The good thing is that when stock prices go against me, I already knew what were the catalysts – they were foretold by those whom I’ve dismissed remember?

I get out.

That’s beauty with spending time with people who don’t agree with what I say! Wink.

How do you sharpen your sword or saw?

By going against a grindstone.
