How to Become a Mindful Trader

Measuring your activity is a good way to begin improving your trading. Time blocking is more quantitative.

You can add qualitative aspect of it also by calculating the sum total of all your trading activity each day.

[Forget daily profit goals – focus on keeping your losses small and let time and leverage work for you.]

By the end of the week, you’ll be able to see what you’re earning per hour.

Marry this with your trading journal and you’ll be able to determine what your time and effort are worth fundamentally. This is the qualitative part…

How effective and how efficient are you at what you’re doing?

Challenge yourself to always get the most insightful information you can on your own behavior. That is what’s most compelling and informative about your trading success and ability.

Be brutally honest with yourself. No one else will and you don’t want to mindf*ck yourself into eternity.

Control what’s controllable. Surrender to the rest. Put your stops in. Tomorrow is going to be your best day ever.
