Anyone who invests based on the most optomistic projection is likely to be disappointed.

It is better to invest from the standpoint that you consider the worst thing that can happen if you make an election rather than the best. You may not increase your assets as quickly as some, but you are likely to be able to hold on to them better.

But of course I could be wrong :-),
