Welcome to Safal Niveshak’s Wall of Ideas , where I present hand-drawn illustrations of a few thoughts on investing, learning, decision-making, and living.
The permanent home of these illustrations lies here , where all my future updates will happen.

Thank you, Justin!
Fine good collection useful post congratulations to your work.
Love the way you articulate and share your perspective.
Thank you so much. Best wishes to you!!
After watching your entire work a thought came to my mind like
Theories give you general human approach, However practical teaches you how human’s dnt follow it.
Awesome Vishal. Thanks for the ideas in pictures.
Ram Mohan J Rao says
Thanks Vishal for this brilliant collection of your illustrations. It encapsulates in a highly entertaining and humorous manner all the key principles leading to wealth, happiness and contentment. You have been selfless in sharing such wisdom freely with us.

Would be helpful to know if there is a tool which can be used to create such illustration digitally

Love the illustrations. Especially the normal distribution curve which turns into a ghost in investing!! Can you make sure the arrows for carousal dont appear on the illustration. Its hard to see in phone
subhasish behera says
Vishal….everytime i read you i felt a humanely touch..
Least investing i am learning living..
My teacher says…three devis should be worshipped..MAHESWARI MAHALAXMI MAHASARASWATI..these are the powers which behold our life.
Maheswari is the knowledge self, saraswati is the patience self, and laxmi the glitter”shree” the harmonious blend in between…
Fantastic! Fabulous! Free!

There is so much to learn in this well crafted article. It sums up almost everything about investment and investor behaviour. Thanks for collecting this together. I have shared it with my circle.
Vijay Wadhi says
Love the way you present your ideas thru illustrations. Glad to know they are now available at one place. I am saving this link in my favorites to visit frequently!!
You should also add your recommended books list here.
Thank you Vishal, all your illustrations have been like pearls of wisdom for DIY investors like me. The fact that they are visual helps the ideas to stick better.
Probably something that I have been actively trying to understand/implement is capital preservation. For most goals, I have been aggressively investing in equities (retirement, home purchase, child education). However, have not figured out when during the time horizon I need to switch from equity to debt so that my corpus built is not destroyed before/when I need the corpus. What is the best strategy to follow and time when this rebalancing should be done? What are the best instruments? Do all of them have tax implications/LTCG tax on withdrawal.

Wonderful Insights in Simplest language. Simply Awesome.
Thanks Vishal ji.
Love these illustrations since the time earlier you used to share whenever you might have created on Twitter and your blogs. Thanks now for collaborating and once again sharing. As mentioned in Ideas, you may share some of these illustrations based on the mental models of various disciplines. Such as taking physics (or any other discipline) and draw the learning curve for that discipline as precisely you have done it for History – Ravana and learnings, or Maths and normal distribution.
Amazing work Vishal Sir. Thank you for all the efforts and sharing this with us. Cheers !!
Nirav Mehta says
Love your writing, illustrations and the thought process.
Combine illustrations + your kids workshop content + some reading = great book idea.
Are you now wealthiest person or the happiest person?
Truly F5 (Refreshing) Vishal ji.
Elizabeth Thomas says
So cool! Great idea

Gurpreet Mangat says
Fantastic as always from Vishal, wisdom in a pocket book, cannot get better than this.
Deep thoughts presented in a visual form. The reach and depth of this model is out of question, for the product here is not Warren Buffet’s ideas but yourself.
Congrats and thanks for your inspiring post.
You remind me of the character called Arkad in “The Richest man in Babylon” by George. S Clayson, where he says learning are of two kinds in school, the one kind being the things we learned and knew, the other being the training that taught us how to find out what we did not know. And your’s is the second one! Keep up the noble work. Thanks!
José Manuel says
Sometime the word “thank you” is also the hardest word, only because gives us a sensation of been too much incomplete to express our gratitude, or more precisely, our conscience that we are in “debt of gratitude” and we have no easy way to return.
Thank You from Portugal!
Muito obrigado! (thank you very much, in Portuguese)
Muito agradecido! (is also the same thing, but I prefer that form)
I am new to the investing concept but whatever i learned from your blog till now is too good. I have one question which is:
People talk about Average out your investment(which we normally do by doing SIPS) but what if the stocks in which we want to invest is overvalued. Where should you keep your money. Should we keep it in FD, do recurring or keep in debt funds so that our investment is not impacted by inflation.
Great illustrations. Some of these would be printed and put up on the wall near my desk. Thanks!

Thanks for putting these in public forum, it will surely benefit many!
Thank you Vishal for sharing this with us , each illustration has a lot learning in it. You should write a book which explain each illustration in detail.

Advait joshi says
Lots of love. Please consider removing luck-skill continuum graph from wall or put it in proper context. Yes markets are pure luck within a day or a week, but pure skill for long term. Consider this, no amount of bad luck can affect 10 to 20 years unskilled diversified SIP returns for most countries most of history.
