I was wasting some time the other day chasing the little while ball. And i came to realize that golf and trading seem to be very similar in many regards.. 1. You have to start out humble and with pleanty of patience 2. The harder you hit it when you are new...the more like you are to screw up. 3. The devil is in the details. 4. Frustration is the name of the game. 5. if you make a mistake, you have to forget about it instantly 6. you never stop learning or getting better. 7. Nobody is ever perfect 8. you need to control your screw ups and minimize them as much as possible. 9. big risks rarely work out for you. better to lower risk and stay safe..as not to lose your balls. 10. spending tons of money on equipment doesnt help much unless you are already good comments?
