Happy Diwali!

by Manshu on November 13, 2012

in Opinion

It feels great to be able to wish all of you a very happy Diwali once again!

As we come close to the end of the year, I’m glad that it has been better in terms of economic circumstances than last year, and hopefully the last few days of this year will pass by uneventfully as well.

There are two things that come to mind when I reflect on the year that’s almost gone. First is that you really have to take a much longer term view of things than you’re usually inclined to do. If you remember this time last year, you will remember how negative everyone was on the markets, and in less than twelve months all that has changed. Anyone who just focused on the short term during that time lost on a very good opportunity to invest in the markets.

The second thing is to focus on the things that you can control and not worry about things that are out of your control. There is nothing you can do if the whole of Europe goes into depression tomorrow or if Dubai defaults but there is a lot you can do to save an extra 1000 bucks every month so that’s where your focus should really be.

A happy Diwali to all OneMint readers! May you live long and prosper!

Happy Diwali to you too Manshu!

Reflecting on the past year, the one thing that comes to my mind is that I’m much more “financially” smarter and aware compared to same time last year, thanks to your blog!

We users/readers have very small task..just open mail box and read the mail. The mammoth task is done by you of writing article’s, finding relevant information, answering comments and than fighting with HTML to produce best results for your users.
I really appreciate your hard work Manshu, whatever I say will be less, I seriously run out of adjectives for your work..you have always been consistent performer I have never seen tempo of the site going down or you failing to respond any of the comments even. Just love the way you handle everything.
Kind regards as always
