You can’t do the same things others do and expect to outperform.” – Howard Marks
Not everybody gets outstanding returns from their investments. Only a few manage to get super returns.
So in that sense, if you as an investor, do exactly what most others are doing, you will get returns that will likely be similar to what most people are getting, not what a few manage to get.
In one sense, you must understand that if you want to earn great returns from your investments, you will have to do much more than others.
At the same time, it must be understood, it is not necessary you try to outperform.
Not everybody needs to be a great investor. You can be great in one domain and not be great in others.
If you’re good at your day job – whatever it is that you do – you need not be a great investor. Getting decent returns is enough too.
Invest safely after a deep research. For better returns go through current affairs and be aware of which companies are grabbing bigger and safer contracts.
