Not So Obvious, Obvious Truths
Well intentioned investors make some common mistakes that with a little bit of perspective are quite avoidable. For one, there are almost always reasons to be concerned — the fact that they mean something to you or you are suddenly aware of them does not impact how they’ll effect markets - just how they effect your emotions. Another common mistake is listening to someone’s opinion or outlook on an investment that does not match “your timeline” e.g. if you are invested for the next 5 years, what someone thinks may happen in the next 5 months is largely irrelevant. Play your plan.
