In this episode of W.I.T. I give some thought to the war in Ukraine and how looking at past geopolitical events might give some insight as to what this might mean for your money.
The third episode of W.I.T. from John looks at the historical impact of geopolitical disruptions on the U.S. stock market.
Three Things Worth Sharing
  1. Having unrealistic expectations leads to disappointment for two reasons:  the world is fragile, volatile & complicated and progress tends to move the goal posts.  98-year-old Charlie Munger, Warren Buffett's business partner in Berkshire Hathaway, is quoted in this article about his secret to living a happy life.   

    The first rule of a happy life is low expectations. If you have unrealistic expectations you’re going to be miserable your whole life. You want to have reasonable expectations and take life’s results good and bad as they happen with a certain amount of stoicism.

  1. With March Madness in full swing this is a great time to read The Final March of Coach K. - it's much more than a basketball story about the winningest coach in college basketball history.
  1. Everyone knows how influential Frank Lloyd Wright was, but his work didn't really resonate with me until I saw it in person.  Here are 10 Frank Lloyd Wright houses in the U.S. that you can visit this summer.
About the 'What I'm Thinking' Series
I do a lot of reading and thinking about personal finance so that our clients don’t have to and I periodically share my thoughts through this series of short recordings & emails - which I’ve creatively titled ‘What I’m Thinking’!
Over time there will be some topics that appeal to everyone, some that will be mildly interesting and some that only folks who are really into personal finance will find useful - which is just perfect.  Take whatever is useful to you from these and ignore the rest - in fact I give you permission to just hit the delete button if it sounds Iike more work than fun to listen!

Mark Twain once said ‘I was going to write you a short letter but I didn’t have time, so I’m writing you a long one.’  That concept really resonates with me, so I work really hard to keep these episodes short and digestible.  I hope you find them interesting - please share it with others that might enjoy it as well!
