My husband is a financial planner, and his ezine this week offered advice on this very subject.
He writes, "Now more than ever, I encourage you to focus on the things you can control and ignore the things you cannot control. The economic discussions in Washington, the European mess, troubles in the Mid-East, and China’s economy are all outside our scope of influence. What we can control are:
· The quality of our relationships, · The quality of our work, · Our overall asset allocation, · How much we save and spend.
Focus on these and you will be better off."
