“It is important to view knowledge as sort of a semantic tree — make sure you understand the fundamental principles, like the trunk and big branches, before you get into the leaves/details or there is nothing for them to hang on to.” (Elon Musk)
The investing community is often extremely generous with knowledge. There are countless resources of others sharing their best perspectives on how to be an investor.
Get into the habit of taking this information in regularly. Be deliberate about which resources you take in. Be selective in what you read and find ways to apply those principles.
As an investor, there will never be a time when you stop learning because investing is literally the business of predicting and buying into the future. Establishing good habits of continuous curiosity are the only way to be successful for the long-term.
