Set forth below is the text of a comment that I recently posted to the discussion thread for another blog entry at this site:
Yes, you’re great at imagining. Not so great at actually doing. When is the last time you posted at any other blog?
I don’t recall. It’s been a long time.
But I certainly expect to be doing so in future days.
After the next crash, I am certain that I will be posting at lots of places. It will be a lot easier then. Emotions will have turned. I will not then be up against the emotional resistance that I have been up against for the past 15 years.
Would it be a good idea to do more posting at other blogs BEFORE the crash? I think it would be a good idea. But it’s hard. There’s an emotional toll that has to be paid for telling people what the last 36 years of peer-reviewed research tells us about how stock investing works in the real world.
Do you see anybody else doing it? Can you point to anyone else who has done as much of it as I did in earlier years?
There’s a reason why no one else goes there. It’s hard work. Taking constant emotional hits is the hardest kind of work there is.
I am proud that I have done as much of that kind of work as I have. I want to do more. I believe that I can do a lot of good by doing more. But I am not inclined to get down on myself for not doing more when I have already done more than anyone else out there. I am not super-human. I am made of flesh and blood like everyone else. I need to push myself as hard as it is reasonable to push myself but no harder. Pushing myself too hard would just make things worse. It would lead to me doing less of this kind of work instead of more.
These are my sincere thoughts re these terribly important matters, in any event.
My best wishes to you.
