If You Are A Trader, You Will Relate

When an archer is shooting for nothing . . . he has all his skill.
If he shoots for a brass buckle . . . he is already nervous.
If he shoots for a prize of gold . . . he goes blind; or sees two targets . . . he is out of his mind!
His skill has not changed. But the prize . . . divides him. He cares.
He thinks more of winning than of shooting . . .
and the need to win drains him of power.
– Chuang Tzu, 400 B.C.

If you do not relate, then you are not likely a trader.


  1. What an apt post for this blog! Perfect !

  2. True words, if we fear of loss can't initiate trade, if we greed of profit can't visualize risk. Balancing between them is tough but not impossible.
