Your Almost Daily Bit of Wall Street Wit & Wisdom

be prepared

h/t John Lee Post

“Over prepare.  Do the work with intensity and focus – it’s that attitude that starts attracting people/opportunities.  You start believing in yourself.  You start accomplishing things you weren’t supposed to accomplish.”
— Ian Cassel, @iancassel

I was not a Boy Scout, but I believe they’ve got a good motto, “Be Prepared.”

You should have a complete game plan for each trade.  You know what to do if you’re right and what to do if you’re wrong.

You are in a state of readiness so that surprises don’t surprise you.  Negative surprises won’t take you out.  You’ll be there to reap the rewards when positive surprises come your way.

Have a great weekend!

Best regards,
