The more I watch the market the less scary it becomes. The less scary it becomes, the less emotion goes into how I'm trading.

For instance this last few weeks. The market plummets, and it comes back, up and down, and up and down.

Huh... welp... so what? Big deal if it goes down... it'll come back. Why react all hastily and flustered you know? Go all emo and pull myself off plan?

Maybe that's just it right? Having our plans give us the stability that others feel in the G fund. Oh.. look at the down market... big deal... I'm averaging X amount for the long haul. That bad day or two is a short term thing.

The average historical outcome gives me that feeling of security to that those huge emotional reactions out of the game.
