Essential Listening: Quieting Your Mind

Posted In: Weekend Reads

One of the great things about the state of podcasting today is its diversity. If you look hard enough, you can find a podcast out there on just about any topic. The assortment of selections below reflects (in part) this diversity. You can listen to podcasts on everything from Charlie Munger, to analyst earnings estimates, to commercial space travel, to meditation.

If you haven’t checked out last week’s edition of Essential Listening, please do so. And let’s move onto a new list of podcasts that will make your next workout or commute more enjoyable.

Feel free to leave a comment with podcasts other Enterprising Investor readers might enjoy. I may highlight your suggestion in the next edition of this podcast series.

You can read more from Tadas Viskanta on his blog Abnormal Returns or follow him on Twitter @abnormalreturns.

    Hello Tadas
    Thank you for your excellent distillation of podcasts available.
    However it was the title that caught my attention.
    In these days of information overload I think any value we can add as investment professionals is to listen to that quite voice inside our heads that guides us.
    There is an interesting story in Jason Voss’ excellent book called the Intuitive Investor.
    For some of the blog readers you will know that Jason knows his numbers and financial analysis better than most people.
    But in this story it is not numbers that intrigue him but a watch on the wrist on the hand of the CFO of a company he is there to interview.
    This watch is a red flag in his mind and deters him from making an investment in the company.
    Your title says it all – quieten your mind – you will find all the inspiration and guidance you need in yourself.
    My two cents for the cause.
    Kind regards
    Savio
