You’re not Actually Helping

Every time you check your portfolio, thinking you’re being productive, you’re actually doing 2 things:

  1. You increase the likelihood of panic selling or moving investments around, incurring more fees.
  2. You add stress because you start worrying about your money.

Instead, do these 2 things:

  1. Take a couple weeks and decide what you want to invest in.
  2. Once your investments are set up, leave them alone and check your portfolio no more than once a week.
