If a movie was being made of your life, what would be the story line? —#AnirudhSethi

What plot points would you include if movie were made about your life? 
Do you think it would be entertaining? 
How interested would you be in seeing that film?
Goal setting does not lead to behavioural change in humans. 
While setting goals can help guide the changes we make, it is through actual action that we grow and develop. 
What we habitually engage in becomes part of who we are. 
What we put our energy into grows within us. 
The journey is being made one day at time.
When we stick to the same schedule every day, our lives start to feel mundane. 
The two of us are not going to see that film.
When we rise to meet the challenges we face, every day becomes an opportunity to develop. 
We succeed, we fail, and we are always living some aspect of the person we hope to become. 
That gives our lives some sort of narrative. 
can see how that would make for an entertaining film.
G.I. Gurdjieff recognised that sleep is our worst enemy. 
When we rely on our routines and habits, we drift through life unconsciously. 
Living on autopilot will not get us to where we want to be. 
Thus, development is impossible apart from persistent, deliberate effort.
Look at your life like it’s movie. 
You create the story with the actions you take every day. 
It is true that our actions shape who we are. 
need to know the plot of your story.

Just some supplementary Covid measures being announced from China today it seems

It isn’t much as the NHC just released some supplementary guidelines as noted below:

Just be wary though, that the Hong Kong and Macau governments are expected to introduce easing of Covid measures in the coming hour as well. It is expected that Hong Kong may end the outdoor mask rule and relax testing requirements. The Hang Seng is up over 3% on the day after yesterday’s late fall.

BOE set to raise bank rate by 50 bps next week – Reuters poll

  • 52 of 54 economists said BOE will raise bank rate by 50 bps next week
  • Only 2 economists expect a 75 bps rate hike next week
  • Median chance of 85% that UK economy headed towards a recession within a year
  • Majority of respondents see the recession as one that would be long and shallow
  • The median for the bank rate peak is seen at 4.25%, forecasts ranged between 3.50% and 4.75%

This will follow the 75 bps rate hike in November here. In commenting on the forecasts above, HSBC says that:

“We think it will be a 50 bps rise, taking the bank rate to 3.50%, with risks weighted towards a larger 75 bps move, rather than a smaller 25 bps one.”
