Dealing with volatility

Volatility may not be risk. Volatility could be the admission ticket to the long-term (and much needed) return. At best, embrace the volatility. At worst, ignore it. If you can’t do either, I can help you. The only certainty is uncertainty. Surprise is the mother of all panic. The antidote is rational behavior. Fear is not a strategy. Once a wealth management plan is crafted, agreed upon and implemented, I believe the essence of what I do is to suppress one's natural tendency to panic.

The world only seems to be ending (thanks to financial journalism). The most fascinating aspect of all crises (financial or otherwise) is their essential sameness. This time is never different.

It’s okay to feel fear.  Most often, it is not okay to act upon it. Hear me when I say, “Don’t just do something, stand there!” “This too shall pass” “Stay the course” or “Don’t do that!”

I believe optimism is the only realism. Generally, optimism squares with the facts and historical record, pessimism does not. I hate pessimism and I believe the same is true for pessimists.

There is nothing to fear, but fear itself
