Long - Short
Warren Buffet made 99% of his US$84.3 billion net worth after he was 60 years old. It took him 30 years to reach a million, another 30 to reach a billion and by the time he’s 90, he’ll reach 100 billion.
People always overestimate what they can achieve in the short run and underestimate what they can build in the long run. If you’re too focused on making a small buck here and there, you will never truly make wealth.
Set realistic goals, and play for the long run, not the short.
