I didn't get to the position we're in by being spontaneous. I view it as an ocean liner pushing through the rough waters

There's lots of ways to do good in the stock market. I think the important things is to have a solid, robust, preferably well-tested process that you can stick to. And Don't Panic. ;-)

The single biggest thing is to avoid making stupid mistakes, and to invest with your head not your heart.

And, of course, to not give your money to somebody who is so afraid of taking any loss that they'll give up the long-term profits. ;-)
