We’ve all tried to bunk our gym session or dance class. A single routine can get monotonous.

Our friends at the Republican convention were more than happy to talk about everything they think is wrong with America, but they didn’t have much to say about how they’d make it right. They want your vote, but they don’t want you to know their plan.

You can plan to be brave – it’s even better if you just try to be brave.

The method of the enterprising is to plan with audacity and execute with vigor.
When I look back, I remember how being a part of Bollywood was never the plan.

Bad movies: they can be tatty classics of crazed ineptitude, like Edward D. Wood’s ‘Glen or Glenda’ and ‘Plan 9 from Outer Space,’ or big-budget misfires like the 1987 ‘Ishtar,’ a would-be comedy that sent Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman on a Hope-Crosby Road to Dystopia.

The way to connect with voters on the plan is to simply give the facts. Fifty per cent of taxpayers pay 97 per cent of the taxes. By most people’s standards, that’s already fair.

Don’t wallow in brainstorming.

The thing to do with mutual funds is to buy a couple of decent ones, set up an investment plan and then never, ever think about them again, except maybe once a quarter or so when you take a peek at your statements to make sure that you have not accidentally been buying the Fidelity Peace-in-the-Middle-East fund.
