So I think I discovered what the hardest part of this journey will be. If I plan to trade my way to this double (which is only partially true), I have to get up with the market. Since the market in the U.S. starts at 6:30 a.m PST, I have decided to drag my lazy self out of bed at the same time. Do I honestly think I can consistently do this. Doubtful.
Remember, I come from the software engineering world. In that world, the day starts at 9:00 a.m. and that's if you are an early-bird. I use to show up at my job at MS at 8:45 most days, and I would easily be the first in the office. I was lucky to see most developers by 10:00.
So I attempted to get up at 6:30 today. But as if the fates were conspiring against me, the electricty for my block, and only my block, was out this morning. No lights, no alarm clock, no internet access. I'm actually writing this post from the local library. Now that's dedication.
