Get Your Fortune Now, Not 1 Year Later

In this Chinese or Lunar New Year, many people like to know what is their fortune for this year. As what Sun Tzu said in The Art of War, if you know yourself and you know the environment, you are in no danger. Your Fortune in the Year of the Goat revealed in 5 areas:

Money
This year you will have chances to make more money than last year. However, you must be alert to take advantage of opportunities quickly or they will be gone. Furthermore, you must work hard, but not too hard or you will missed opportunities. Although this year (2015) inflation is low, you nevertheless must invest your hard earned savings into instruments that beat inflation, like REITs that offer quarterly dividends exceeding 6% per annum.  

Lastly, you must know how to donate money, for the more give, the more you will have.

Career and Business: 
Things appear to be challenging in the short term, as the world economies are not looking rosy at least until the second half of the year. However, as long as the things that you do are unique and adding value, the bad economy will not affect you and in fact would help because people will appreciate vendors that add more value.

Family: 
This year you will have less time for family, but can make it up in terms of quality.  Remember, always set aside an hour a day or week for family time. and in the worse case, spend an extra minute with your family.

Social: 
Friends will be coming along this year, especially professional friends from social media like Facebook, Linked and Google +.  Be sure to add them and send caring messages to them, as this is the fastest way to build friendships.  Also, click the 'Like' button often, and refrain from negative comments.  Remember, if you have nothing better to say, say nothing. 

Health: 
Food intake will be more important, especially with the advent of more food scares.  Experts tell us to cut down on meat consumption, and to make it a point to have a day in a week as totally vegetarian, or a meal in a day to be vegetarian.  Regular exercise is important, but exercise of the mind is of greater importance.  Meditating once a day for 10 to 30 minutes is very useful. 

Overall, this is the year of the Goat and not the Pig, you have to put in more effort.  Continue to do what you do best, cut down on things that don't work, and most importantly, have fun!
