Weekly Mixtape:

Morgan Housel: No More Gurus “We’ll never get rid of gurus, because assuming someone knows everything is easier than trying to figure out how they knew one thing. They let us pretend the future is knowable, and the path forward is obvious.”

The Irrelevant Investor: How Luck Changes The World “What I just shared was only the tip of the iceberg, but needless to say a lot of chance occurrences had to happen for me to be in the fortunate position that I am today”

Douglas Boneparth: Big Family “Isn’t it funny that, even when you have so much to be thankful for, the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence?

It will always be easier to look outside of our own situation, towards the things we think we want instead of extracting the best out of what we already have. It’s borderline crazy how we find ourselves feeling like we’re missing out on something we are already participating in it.’

Bps and Pieces: Little Things I’m Thankful For “It’s easy to remember the Big Things we are grateful for. What gets lost in the shuffle at times are the little things that give us joy. When I think about the investment profession, there are a number of little things that come to mind that make me feel #blessed:”

The WSJ: For Boomers and Their Children, Money Conversations Can Be Tough “Jokes and jabs, both from parents and children, highlighting generational differences can shut down these conversations, as parents feel defensive and young people feel misunderstood.’
