“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit” —Aristotle
Aristotle made that profound state about how we become who we are. Trading, in the beginning, seems so simple yet everyone eventually sees it for what it is, a lesson in humility. If the beginner could just embrace this fact and follow Aristotle’s observation of man, then the journey could be more linear. We would never say easier but more on target with less time spent in frustration.
Use this guidance to develop your routine. Make a routine out of every aspect of trading. The routine will help develop you into a trader and act as a guardrail against falling into bad habits. You will become a profitable trader because you are routinely acting as a profitable trader.
