“You work mentally when you go on the court every day.  You don’t complain when you play bad, when you have problems, when you have pains.  You put the right attitude, the right face.  You are not negative about all the issues that happened…You go on court every day with the passion to keep practicing.  That’s the mental work, no?

That’s something that I did during all my career, not being frustrating (sic) when things are not going well, not being too negative.  That’s why I was able to always have the chance to be back.

Here we are, important title, important moment.  Now is the moment to keep going.”
— Rafael Nadal

Chaos, h/t thenewstack.io

“Our soul is a vast panorama.  There is room for so much in us at the same time: Love and treachery, faith and faithlessness, adoration of one person and longing for another, or for several others.  We try to bring order into ourselves as best we can, but this order is, after all, something artificial.  Our natural state is chaos.”
— Arthur Schnitzler

This quote can be descriptive of economic data and markets.  Grasping their chaotic nature can help in wading through information overflow to get to the heart of the matter.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
