BarroMetrics Views: The Path To Success
Trading success, any success for that matter, has two elements:
- Knowing what to do, and
- Doing what we know.
In the next couple of blogs, I’ll be reflecting on the latter.
Our age may be called ‘the instant age’ – we look to attain outcomes ‘yesterday’. Not as frequent today as in yesteryear, but the content in ads for trading seminars have changed little – promising instant success for minutes of effort a day.
But what does the science for success say? We’d like to think that success comes down to one eureka moment; the truth is success comes from the decisions we make moment to moment. And it comes from the habits we create to attain the outcome we want. That outcome depends on the person we are and we are that person because of our daily habits.
“What you repeatedly do (i.e. what you spend time thinking about and doing each day) forms the person you are, the things you believe, and the personality you portray”. (James Clear)
In the next couple of blogs, I’ll consider why good habits are essential to success, how we form great habits and lose poor ones.
