Alan Watts was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known for translating and popularizing Eastern philosophies for a Western audience.
Below is an insightful quote from him…

I’ve been a trader since late 2006. I run my trading business full-time and that is how I make my living. I’ve learned more in the past 10 years than I have at any other point in my life, and I expect the lessons, the mistakes, the failures, and the successes (all intimately intertwined) to continue.
There are a couple of questions that I didn’t get to answer fairly well during the Q&A session of my presentation at the Tradersfest event organized by Rayner at tradingwithrayner.com. So I thought I’d address that here, and, think out loud for a few minutes.
