Morgan Housel: Not Caring-A Unique And Powerful Skill “But if you can remain dispassionate about what people think of you while you’re trying to get that outcome, or about the noise around you during the process, you have an advantage that I doubt one in a hundred thousand has in this industry.”

A Wealth Of Common Sense: Why Are People Miserable At Work “But if you don’t have something outside the office to balance out your life, no amount of money or career accomplishments are going to make you happy.”

The Belle Curve: Substance “The future of financial advice has to be a profession. Professionals go deep. They spend years getting their education, followed by a period of apprenticeship under a more experienced professional. They pursue lifelong learning in their craft. They possess the humility to admit they cannot know it all and the courage to change course or even start over when the way they have always done things no longer works.

Khe Hy: How To Build Durable And Long-Lasting Atomic Habits “The case for habit formation is a compelling one.

Clear qualifies these habits as Atomic Habits, because despite their tiny size, compounding them over long periods can have exponential impacts.”

Timing these regimes is not a worthwhile endeavor and will only lead to regret, which is the most poisonous feeling in the spectrum of investor emotions.”
