Vitaliy spells out exactly how it is, as well as how it should be. I wish I hadn't wasted so many years as a face-timer, research-producer and CNBC-prisoner.
Take the rope off your neck and wear comfortable clothes to work (I often opt for jeans and a “Life is good” T-shirt). Pause and ask yourself a question: If I was not bound by the obsolete routines of the dinosaur age of assembly-line manufacturing, how would I structure my work to be the best investor I could be?
If this is how you think, then go with it (picture from before I quit managing money)
Twitter memes for portfolio managers:
Do you remember when money managers had CNBC on during the day? That was fun.
Wearing a suit and tie, staring at real-time stock prices on the screen all day?! Are you out of your mind?!
Multitask? What are you, four years old? Do you believe in Santa too?
Wait, stop the beat a minute, whaddyamean check the stock prices every day? Stupid says what.
