Don't confuse activity with progress. In investing, doing nothing is a virtue.
The securities industry profits from activity. It's good for them but bad for you because it increases costs.
Once you've selected your investments, do nothing. Ignore the financial news. Stay the course. Don't get distracted.
Good investing is about as exciting as watching paint dry.
