11 Investing and Finance Mantras to Live By

  1. Live well within your means. More stuff ≠ more happiness.

  2. The only constant in life is change. Stay flexible (mentally and with personal circumstances), and be comfortable with being a little uncomfortable.

  3. Crowds can be (and often are) wrong. 

  4. A healthy dose of skepticism is essential in life. But remember: Pessimism only sounds more intelligent than a positive outlook, it’s often the half-glass-full viewpoint that wins the day.

  5. Anything that requires an excessive amount of time and attention isn’t an investment, it’s a job. There’s nothing wrong with one versus the other, but don’t confuse the two.

  6. True investing involves providing capital to a person or organization in need, then benefitting alongside them from their efforts.

  7. If you’re still working, keep saving. Deposit new cash into your account -- the more frequently the better (like monthly or quarterly). If you’re retired, always keep idle cash in your account to take advantage of periods of volatility. Cash is like a good set of shocks for life’s very bumpy road.

  8. Investing should never be a short-term venture. That’s what savings is for. When’s the last time you heard an entrepreneur say they started a new venture for a few months to a couple years tops?

  9. Paying a fair price for an investment is important, but becomes less important the longer you expect to own it.

  10. More trading ≠ more profitability.

  11. All investments have risk. But each investment has a different set of risks. Rather than think in terms of “safe” versus “high-risk,” identify what the different individual risks are -- and when the right time to take said risks makes most sense.
