Investing Checklist from Charlie Munger

Charlie MungerGreat digest from From Poor Charlie's Almanack:

  • Measure risk - All investment evaluations should begin by measuring risk, especially reputational.
  • Be independent - Only in fairy tales are emperors told they're naked.
  • Prepare ahead - The only way to win is to work, work, work, and hope to have a few insights.
  • Have intellectual humility - Acknowledging what you don't know is the dawning of wisdom.
  • Analyze rigorously - Use effective checklists to minimize errors and omissions.
  • Allocate assets wisely - Proper allocation of capital is an investor's No. 1 job.
  • Have patience - Resist the natural human bias to act.
  • Be decisive - When proper circumstances present themselves, act with decisiveness and conviction.
  • Be ready for change - Accept unremovable complexity.
  • Stay focused - Keep it simple and remember what you set out to do.
