Coach Wooden Taught Us Trading

“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
You become a better trader by finding the plays that make sense to you and trading more of them with more size.

“It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.”
It’s the thousand little things done well before the chop that make the chop possible.

“If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything.”

Each rip is a gift from the market from which you can learn.

““It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.”

There is nothing to get as a trader just the journey of perpetual improvement.

“Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.”

Proper preparation is required before every open.



“Be quick but do not hurry.”

Pull the trigger when you see the trade but not before.

“Never mistake activity for achievement.”

Perfect trading practice makes perfect trading.

“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”

You learn by breaking down each trade into small pieces and reviewing each piece.

“Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.”

Adapt or the market will eliminate you.

“Success is peace of mind, a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming…..”

Your goal each day is to improve.



“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.”

Trading is just a part of your life.

“Make each day your masterpiece.”

One Good Trade and then One Good Trade and then One Good Trade.
