When I was younger I thought I had it all figured out. I wasn’t cocky by nature, but after dealing with the challenges of dyslexia, I took my education quite seriously. I knew I had to work extra hard to develop my mind and thrive in the world.
Now that I have 25 years of investing and working experience behind me, I am trying to embrace what I do not know as much as what I do know. In other words, I ask myself how can I be more humble and challenge my pre-conceived notions?
Let’s face it, life and investing is full of unforeseen twists and turns. A year ago everyone was convinced we were about to enter a recession. A bull market and low employment later, none of that came to fruition. Yes, the doomsayers will say it is right around the corner. And just like a clock 2 times a day, eventually they will be right. But how much time would we have wasted just sitting around waiting for the world to blow up Oppenheimer style?
