Seth Godin wrote a great post this week and I’d like to add some thoughts about day trading/tracking–what bitcoin owners might be tempted to do as a result of bitcoin’s volatility.
When anything of value strings out our emotions–unpredictable highs and lows–we find ourselves obsessing. Bitcoin is just an example, though. If we’re aware enough to watch for it, we can see where volatility exists in our lives and where we create it. Sometimes we like the unpredictable highs and lows, even if we don’t realize it.
What throws you off? What do you day trade or try to track for a sense of security even when you know you have no control over a given situation? Focus on what you can control, namely, the attention and emotions currently focusing on your version of pointless day trading.
The major work of the world is not done by geniuses. It is done by ordinary people, with balance in their lives, who have learned to work in an extraordinary manner.
