I’ve dubbed 2012 the year fluidity. From necessity in life and the markets. 2011 was, in my humble book, the year of resistance. We ranted and railed and defaulted on a big brash country scale. We held on as tightly as possible not really getting ‘what was’ had already escaped us in 2009, discarded us in 2010 and made it felt in 2011.
Cause and effect have changed. If we do this we get that. Actually, if we do this, we get a lucky dip. Perhaps curiosity is the only sanity. If we do this, what will we get? And if we do it again, what else will crop up? Somehow, one has to have a sense of humour regardless of the outcome. And fluidity – are we able to move with the tides, the natural ebb and flow and stay on our toes knowing we can control little above our state of mind or the context we operate in – or in navel gazing speak, our consciousness?
A great dins last night with a diverse, influential group of people. All involved in the markets in some way shape or form. And the debate, well it was varied. And it was fluid. No conclusive answers and many searching Q’s?
Taking stock in a new year seems to be a natural phenomenon. What was 2011 all about, am I doing more than treading water, and what do I want to achieve this year? No small Q’s and yet little steps are the only solution. Stay fluid, take a small step at a time, be mindful and present to every nuance.
This, incase you are wondering, is as much of a note to you as to self! Wishing you and yours the best of the best this 2012.
