Pithy wisdom is for managing your "high", not your profit

I suggested critical thinking, it's so easy to fool yourself or be fooled by others, and it takes a really long time to "wake up" if you've walked down a bad path. That, and therapy if you're emotional about trading or elsewhere in your life. It'll motivate your reasoning otherwise.
Without this, you'll override any other process you might have.
