Each small goal will take you a very long way

Image
Never give up! As long as we manage ourself to be in the game, we will be able to achieve the next small goal. Each small goal we achieve, we gain experience, a piece of knowledge and perhaps a new skill. Each new knowledge we gain we know we've got one more asset that nobody can take away. Our stamina will be further enhanced. Our wills will be stronger. Our chance to beat the challenge will be higher! The accumulation of our small achievement is not a process of addition but multiplication. For each piece of knowledge we learn will interact and mix with other winning pieces of knowledge. Together these knowledge will affect the other knowledge so much small pieces of knowledge will grow even more within its domain due to other pieces may be relevant to each other. And when we reach enough number of such knowledges we reach the critical point of explosive growth! You can call it a network effect or you can call it an exponential growth, compounding effect or whatever terms you

One of my relatives, let's call him Ken, asked me for advice on how to invest in stocks in last year Christmas party. I was not too sure about his age but he was definitely in mid 40. Ken was not the type of person who was interested in investing. Otherwise he would have started much earlier and wouldn't have asked me such elementary question on how to start investing at such age. Anyway, it's better to start late and then too late. So I was very eager to share with him my experiences (yes I do get excited about investing) with him about fundamental, technical, economic analysis and so forth. After a long conversation, Ken concluded that he will "study until he understand everything" then he will dive in. It was a positive conclusion but to my opinion is that one will NEVER understand everything about investment.

Most of us dream about being wealthy at certain age. However, most of us don't really have a "plan" to get there. Often we found ourself approaching such age but the wealth we used to dream of is nowhere to be seen.
