Quick Tip: Mastering Trading

George Leonard noted in his book Mastery that “Our culture has become hooked on the quick fix, the life hack, efficiency. Everyone is on the hunt for that simple action algorithm that nets maximum profit with the least amount of effort.”

Sounds like “Lotto Mentality.” And unfortunately, those are the kinds of teasers you read in your emails every day. Don’t fall for it. 

To master anything, you’ll find coaches and authors all agreeing on the same basics: 

1. Intense focus.

2. Practice.

3. Incrementally improving (day by day).

4. Persistence. 

5. Acknowledging Mastery is a journey, not a destination. 

Nothing quick and easy about that. 

Your trading plan should include personal development goals and ongoing trading education. This doesn’t necessarily require hours a day although that would surely accelerate your gains. 

Just like your exercise regime, if you devoted 30 minutes a day to simulated trading a new strategy you’d see your trade execution skills improve in short order. You might even find a better strategy!
