If the most-wanted item in your Amazon shopping cart goes on sale, you press “Buy Now” right?
But when the stock market goes on sale (like this week’s largest drop in history), it’s all too common to not buy or (worse) even to sell out of fear of further volatility.
How about you?
When your value is down, when you’re between jobs, when you’re preparing for the next promotion, when your salary isn’t commensurate with the value you provide…are you buying or selling?
Are you investing in yourself through new experiences, education, and training?
Or are you “selling” by staying within your comfort zone, trying the same old experiences, using the same skills you learned 20 years ago, or looking for the safest lateral career move until the dust settles?
Will you buy you?
“A simple rule dictates my buying: Be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful.” – Warren Buffett
