Moving forward with Motion

How Checking Performance Might Hurt Your Performance

Paying too much attention to your investments (more than once per quarter) costs more than just your time: Make you more risk-averse.

They pass their time, day after day, in idle, passive pursuits, just looking at things – at games, television, whatever. Or they fill the hours talking, mostly about nothing of significance – of comings and goings, of who is doing what, of the weather, of things forgotten almost as soon as they are mentioned....

Rest by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang

Rest and work complements each other. Rest is an essential component of good work as world-class people alternate daily periods of intense work and concentration with long breaks.
