Weekend Reading – Rainy summer edition

Wow I can’t believe summer is upon us already. Not too long ago I was celebrating Christmas with Mrs. T, Baby T1.0 and our immediate family. Where did the time go? Although it’s technically summer, it has been raining the last few days here in Vancouver. Rain is good for the lawn and plants but it sure would be nice to start getting some warm and sunny days! With the way it has bee raining the last few days, I better build an ark!

It’s also hard to believe that I have not been consuming coffee and caffeinated drinks for 24 days already. Going cold turkey did wonder to my overall energy level. I have been waking up feeling great in the morning and haven’t felt drowsy throughout the day. I have also found green rooibos latte as an excellent substitute for English Breakfast. Getting away from coffee and caffeinated drinks is a lot easier when there is a substitute. 🙂

Without further ado, here are some great articles I’ve come across.

Zen Habits explained All You Need, You Already Have.

Be More With Less discussed why You can’t lose with this investment strategy.

Dividend Hustler shared his long term game with dividend growth investing.

Robb explained why the Canada Pension Plan expansion matters.

Lanny crashed the $7,000 forward dividend income! Congrats Lanny.

Our Next Life said, Don’t Wait. Do It Now!

Dividend Growth Investor shared how to get dividend investment ideas.

Finally, a video that led to a great and long discussion between Mrs. T and I.

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Going without caffeine for almost a month must be tough. I love my morning cup of coffee, and cannot imagine my day starting without it..

    Thank you for the mention Tawcan!

    24 days without coffee? Inconceivable! (I may have watched Princess Bride last night). I do love coffee though, and we’re right in the best part of the year, iced coffee season 😀

    “Lanny crashed the $7,000 forward dividend income!”

    That’s the nice part of Income Investing!! One sees the income grow with each investment and it motivates one to continue doing the same. As it compounds it becomes even more exciting and encouraging.
