What Would I Do Now

“People are more emotional than logical, and tend to over-react to short-term results. They give up and sell low when times are bad and buy too high when times are good – wise people stick with sound fundamentals through the ups and downs, while flighty people react emotionally to how things feel, jumping into things when they’re hot and and abandoning them while they’re not.” – Ray Dalio
