 I was nicely surprised as an entrepreneur to have one of my Twitter accounts reinstated. A big "Thank you" goes to Elon Musk for allowing it back. 🙏

To be honest, I don't feel it should have been banned in the first place as I have never promoted anything harmful or nasty. I lost the majority of my followers and the work I had done but I am not going to sit and cry over it. I am coming back stronger and more determined. 

I treat this little hiccup as a learning curve. If I did not have any Twitter presence I would not have learned by my mistakes. To the NEW 2023.

 Goals for 2022

So I wrote goals for 2022 in my daily journal. I didn't do it dead spot on 1st January, instead I took time over the few weeks in January, working on various areas of my life. Nothing is set in stone, goals can be modified to suit circumstances, but I created a framework to adhere to.

It is really useful for me, as it motivates me to push harder to achieve my goals. Since I am a spreadsheet person, some of my goals went into a personal spreadsheet together with a target numbers.

I set up some investment goals, which may have to be modified a bit depending on the outside world. Whatever I can control is being take care of. Things I cannot control, I have to agree with without moaning. I take reasonable risk taking into consideration my personal circumstances.

My circumstances are different from yours, so what works for me does not have to work for you.

There are, however, some things that are universal and can be applied to anybody.

1. Write your goals down with dates you expect to achieve them,

2. Don't try to fit in with other people. It's your life and your circumstances are unique to you.

3. Celebrate your little achievements. Give yourself a pat on the back, do something that makes you smile.

4. Review your goals regularly. Amend them, add new ones.

5. Find joy in any work you do for living. Do it to the best of your ability.

6. Constantly learn and self-develop.

7. Read/listen to podcasts.

8. Exercise.

The list is not exclusive, but it's a good start. It works for me. Hope it will help you too.

 As I mentioned in my blog in September 2020 I started trading. At the moment I invested in 9 stocks. I sold one which I lost money on, the other 9 as of today (14th June 2021) are in green, making money. I had to wait for a few months for a particular stock to start making money. I was confident it would.

I cannot call myself a proficient trader but I am learning. Making some mistakes but moving forward. One thing I learnt and I would repeat to anybody who is thinking about investing: your investment can go up and down. Don't ever invest what you can't lose.

By the way, etoro is one of the platforms where I invest.

Online trading

Over a week ago, after a thorough research and watching the market over the last few years, I took a plunge and bought shares.
