Is this really working?
Have I thought this through enough?
Is my strategy sound enough to hold?
Am I going to look like a fool?
Should I just scrap it?
What if I’d followed that other strategy, where the other fellow said he was making tons of money with? (Like hullo, just forget the other fellow, period).
…when a strategy stalls, or doesn’t behave like you want it to.
Doubt is par for the course.
Doubt is good.
Keep it at good.
Don’t let it control you.
I have a great strategy for when doubt crops up.
I do nothing.
I sit on the strategy in question, and occupy my mind with other things.
Now, two things can happen.
Either the strategy starts to work again,…
…or things remain status quo.
If your patience is over, fine, scrap it.
However, mostly, things do get back to normal.
You’ve taken your time to develop something.
Effort and sweat have gone in.
Don’t be in a hurry to scrap something valuable.
A new strategy will take long to develop. Be prepared for that.
Remember, no strategy works all the time.
You’re well served by one that works more than it doesn’t work.
Doubt serves like a stop-loss.
As doubt overshoots critical mass, you start to change things.
Use doubt as an asset.
Till it is overshooting critical mass, keep observing it, but don’t act.
