That’s right. You heard it here first (not really), people! The main trait you really need to become a decent investor, is time and consistency.
We’ve all heard (or read) the term “Time in the market beats timing the market”. I’m not a big fan of this saying to be honest, but I understand the message that it’s supposed to convey;
If you have money that you are willing to invest, do it now rather than later.
It doesn’t matter which asset(s) you choose to invest your money in – as long as you believe it will yield a decent return (and compound on a regular basis, preferably). As long as you invest in something you’re better off than if you invest in nothing (or worse; buy new cars and expensive gadgets on a regular basis 😛 ).
