    Pick your choice:

    Don't try to time the market.
    Timing is everything.

    One of those is right..... Or they are both irrelevant as standalone pieces of advice.

    Yea old "buggy whip" analogy.

    There were 13,000 businesses in the wagon and carriage industry in 1890, Mr. Kinney said. A company survived not by conceiving of itself as being in the "personal transportation" business, but by commanding technological expertise relevant to the automobile, he said. "The people who made the most successful transition were not the carriage makers, but the carriage parts makers," he said, some of whom are still in business.

    One is the giant Timken Company, whose signature products, roller bearings, were first used in wagon wheels in the 1890s. They easily adapted to the automobile because they could be applied "to nearly anything that moved," Mr. Kinney wrote.
    Adapt to change.

    This guy was not afraid.

    MR. RUSSERT: General Schwarzkopf, how important is it that we capture Osama bin Laden?GEN. SCHWARZKOPF: Well, I think it’s important only because the man on the street in the Middle East, you know, believes that he — a lot of people believe that he is on the right track and that he is some sort of a folk hero and that sort of thing. And I think it’s necessary to bring him down, one way or another. I will confess to you that, you know, one of the statements that’s been attributed to me that I’m sort of proud of is somebody said, you know, “What do we do about Osama bin Laden?” And they asked me, “Can we forgive him?” And I said, “Forgiveness is up to God. I just hope we hurry up the meeting.” And that’s the way I feel about him, really.

    Tim Russert was one of the few talking heads I'd go out of my way to watch. RIP.

    Once he said that:
    "Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy."

    Elon has had some self inflicted wounds from talking about going private and violating the SEC laws. He had to pay a big fine and changed his title. He also started a company called the "boring company" to drill holes in LA to get to work faster.

    The book about the cave boys rescue is out. It is called the boys in the cave. Really interesting "if you are a diver" on how they got them out. It was a 3 hour swim and the drug they knocked out the boys only lasted 30 minutes. They had to stop and give them a shot 5 times. They had a hard time even knowing if the kids were alive or dead.

     Lots of good stuff in the book,  and a bit about Elon and his pedophile remarks and the boring company idea he had to rescue them.
