“Patience son, patience! Let the fish find a way and in a meantime get ready”

When I was younger we used to go fishing with my dad every summer holiday. Just once a year nothing big, just fun.

I wasn’t ready,… I was distracted shouting: “WTF, WTF, what am I doing daad, what am I doing?”. Even I do not go fishing anymore I will never forget those few words about the patience and the beautiful parallel it makes to my trading discipline. It took me a hell of a lot of work to get the right focus but I am human and I am doing mistakes.
