The Next Two or Three Feet

Anne Lamott in her book “Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life”, has written some amazing lines. They are so relevant to investing as they are to every walk to life.

Here they go. Read them once. Read them twice. Reflect. Read them again. Reflect once more.

“E.L. Doctorow” once said that “Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.” You don’t have to see where you’re going, you don’t have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way.

You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you. This is right up there with the best advice on writing, or life, I have ever heard.”

Now that you have read and reflected, I would love to hear your thoughts on what these lines conveyed to you in the context of investing.

I eagerly look forward to your thoughts. I will compile the responses and share it with all of you next week.
