Man Goes Rogue & It Makes Me Think

on July 30, 2020

Mr Rogue from Bangladeshi has gone rogue on me and it seems after he decided to stop working for us, he upped and left lil red dot without tax clearances nor cancelling his work permits.

Mr Rogue is going to be in a big barrel of trouble as he will never be allowed back to work in lil red dot and I wonder if he thought through his thinking process carefully.

By jumping ship with us and failing to serve notice after taking his paycheck, will put him in a poorer economic condition as his future earning capacity in lil red dot is closed. The likelihood of him getting barred from ever getting a work permit here is quite real.

What makes one do such things without a think through process?

Trouble with me, is that I think too much. Sometimes, I feel I over think things. But over thinking when compared to free wheeling (“under thinking) is a lot safer I feel.

I have these what ifs scenario and go through the pros and cons of any decision. Yes, often times, they say that over thinking, causes paralysis by fear.

Have I lost the gung ho, heck care throw caution to the wind spirit?

Yes – because I have got stung by bad decisions before when I did impulse decision making.

Case in point – I suck so bad at investment type decisions LOL!

I am better off putting my pennies in a simple savings account and earning chop change then deciding on something and having it fall flat in my face.

So much for risk appetite! Maybe this is why I am not a gazillionaire as my dollar is not working harder for me, instead I am working harder for my dollar.

I do envy the savvy businessmen who make big bucks in quick time. These are the real tycoons of the world that can be in the Forbes List of Who’s Who.

Well, if it is any consolation, I am in the list of Who’s Garfield’s mama LOL!

    I wish I could have left the investments mom left me in place. I have been using them as a mini bank account and I detest it. I’ll be thankful to stop it!
    I cannot believe a person did this. It makes no sense and especially in this particular time in our world economy.

    Apparently, whoever does not risk does not drink champagne ๐Ÿ™‚
    But like you, I am not a risky type, I am even afraid to spend the money we put in the bank. Because if they are in the bank, I am calmer feel safe.

    Don’t know what is available in the Red Dot. Most investors have neither the time nor skill to invest or the money to have a truly diversified portfolio, so in the U.S., I suggest (1) pay yourself first – put a percentage in savings every paycheck; (2) and when you have enough in savings, put it in mutual funds [in the US, Vanguard because they have the lowest fees], first a fund that tracks the overall market for diversification and then, when you have more money, perhaps a fund that emphasizes dividends – there will be no big scores, but there will be growth over time and less decline in bad times; and (3) let it sit, don’t be tempted to take money out – let it sit for when you absolutely need it to pay your bills, don’t worry when it goes down, it will be up in the long run.

    I don’t like taking risks. I prefer to have less, is that wrong?

      Nope! It is good to just have enough to be prepared for a rainy day. I am by nature frugal as money is always hard earned but if it is required to be expensed, it must! Take care Ultra and stay safe from covid.
