The Game called Investing

Amar Pandit , CFA , CFP

Investing is not a Game where the Fastest Person Wins. It is not even a game where only a few can Win.

This is a Game (I do not prefer calling it a game) where everyone can Win. 

Sadly, it is played in a way that everyone wants to beat something or someone. 

The Result: Very Few Win

When you play a game to win, you are focused on the Process of Winning (Yes there is one). Winning in investing is all about following a process that helps you live the life you have imagined with your money. 

When you play to beat something (stupid benchmarks or irrelevant stuff) or someone, you end up playing a different game. You are now focused on beating something or someone. 

Think about it and Reflect! 

Write a line or two about what you think. 

I would love to hear your thoughts.
