How Does Stock Investment Changed My Daily Routines?


One year and 2 months ago, stock investment has never existed in my life and daily routine is simpler and more repetitive then. being a movie and soccer lover, weekends entertainment are usually revolves around movies and soccer (on and off the field).
 
Since I started to get myself involved in the stocks investment, my daily routines are kind of impacted, unconsciously, for better or worst. Some of the noticeable differences are :
 
1. BEFORE : Reading newspaper is one of my daily routines and usually I will zoom into the Life and Sports section before browsing through the other sections. AFTER : I will zoom into the Money or Invest section FIRST nowadays.
 
2. BEFORE : I am indifference about the companies behind the services/products that I am interested with. AFTER : I tends to find out more about the companies involved and more importantly whether they are listed or not ;-)
 
3. BEFORE : During gathering session with friends, investments or stocks are hardly the topic of interest. Even if some of my friends talk about investment/specific stocks, I will usually switch off. AFTER : Occasionally, I will intentionally initiate the investment topic for open discussion.
 
4. BEFORE : My iPhone/iPad are filled with entertainment/news apps AFTER : My iPhone/iPad are filled with financial news/trading apps (and have the tendency of searching for more related apps)
 
5. BEFORE : The only app that I refresh regularly (for the most updated news) is Facebook. AFTER : Have tendency to refresh regularly my Facebook PLUS the POEM trading platform. I know, being a proponent of value Investing, I should not do this but it is kind of an habit now ;-) 
 
What about you? How does your stock investing journey impacted your daily routines?
 
Cheers!
