Attention and Value

Amar Pandit , CFA , CFP

When it comes to investing, what do you think is truly valuable?

•      The Care, Presence and Guidance of a Real Financial Professional
•      Your Purpose of Money
•      Market History and Perspective
•      What’s happening in the Markets?
•      Headlines

What’s your answer?

While many people say the first three, they give a lot of attention to the last two.


But we have a choice…

We get to decide what we focus on.

Hold on… let me repeat that in case you missed it.

We. Get. To. Decide. What. We. Focus. On.

When it comes to investing, we have a choice where to focus our attention.

If you choose to focus your attention on the noise and distractions, you are signing up to make yourself miserable. And for no good reason. There’s no benefit to this perspective. I can handle pain that leads to gain, but this is just pain that leads to more pain.

On the other hand, when it comes to investing, we get rewarded for ignoring the noise and distractions, for understanding market history and for seeking the care and guidance of a world class real financial professional.

What’s it going to be for you? Where are you going to focus your attention on?
