As I sat there listening to the third guy I’d seen chatter on about risk tolerance, global money, 529K’s and ROTH IRA’s, my mind drifted to a much more pressing question: how is fitness training like controlling money? Maybe I signed several documents while I used to be daydreaming away, and one or two of them may have said something similar to “I relinquish singular ownership of all funds to the amount of money manager listed below,” but who cares?
I came up with the next really neat-o list! THINK LONG TERM. Like high-risk hedge funds, short-term diets and super-intense exercise programs may work for a while, but will eventually crash and burn. BEWARE OF THAT WHICH APPEARS TOO GOOD TO BECOME TRUE. Occasionally I get email messages that promise some amazing suggestion on some obscure stock and warranties of huge returns. There’s always a moment of “MUST I?” followed by a more cautious tone of voice that says, no real way. Look, if anyone had the perfect solution is — the real solution — to either long-term weight control OR consistently trouncing the marketplace, the “Fitness” and “Investment” section of your local Barnes and Noble would consist of exactly one book each.
