Trader Quote #15
“There is a time to go long, a time to go short, and a time to go fishing.” – Jesse Livermoore
=== How about that? There is a time for everything and most of us (include myself) tend to mix things. Haven’t you seen people who had a problem at the office and they cant leave that problem at the office and take it back home and ‘express’ it? or lets say you broke up with a loved one and you cant focus the same way you did on your work again?
All these things make us human, denying this will bring more problems. Life and Work (trading) is usually separated into two distinct worlds. I work and then I am with my family But in reality Life and Work are integral parts of our lives. One world lives and interacts together with the other, its up to us to harmonize both.
With time and experience, I have learnt to Trade when im trading and when i finish, i “close the store” & no more thinking about the office. If im with my family or loved ones im only with them and i try my best to be present. By dong this, i have gotten the most memorable moments in my life.
There is a Time for everything and our job is to respect those times and try not to mix them. This will make us perform better and to have a better mental health. Dimitri F.
