thoughts from todays psyc class….

Ok, I had my psyc class today and alotta stuff really made sense.  We were talking about motivation and problem solving.

first from motivation:

ultimate goal in life to reach self actualization ->  actualizing your full potential.  “Yes I have done as much as I could, I have realized my full potential.”

All truely sucessful men at one time have written out their goals.  The first key to great success begins with you, a piece of paper, a pen, and a plan.

start with small, easily achievable goals.

Give rewards based on goal achievement

second from problem solving:

high intelligence is related to survival, implies higher then avg survivorability

importance of emotional intelligence, ability to connect with people, empathy

in the flow, hyper concentration.  in the zone, maximum production.  easier when enjoy what u’re doing

I’m ISTJ: “Everything has room for improvement” theory based, skeptical, “my way”, high need for competency, see’s life as a chestboard, most independent

or ENTJ: “Lifes natural leaders” visionary, gregarious, argumentative, systems planners, takes charger, low tolerance for incompenency, most commanding

trade notes

ok, i was doing really well this morning, then i got over confident and put in a bit short order, thinking i’d catch aapl going back down, however it shot up, i didn’t monitor, and before ya know it I was down 2-3 grand, then I panicked, covered high, went long when it dipped then started thinking it was going to come back down and I sold then shorted again, only for it to eventually go up! again!

ohly crap, it’s gone up even more.  i’m tempted to cut my losses and try to go long, again!

thing to remember, if it doesn’t follow normal day trading rules, it’s not just moving, it’s on a run one way or another.

ok, guess what, it came back down. I guess the main thing is to watch when the extended buying ends, and be ready to switch.  I got in and should have at least taken profits on half of my shares. but I didn’t and so over time it all came back down, and i was in the neg a grand rather then setting earlier for a profit of a grand.
