"Actually the holy grail of investing is NOT about the financial calculations and spread sheets - it's about understanding the right investment principals, developing the right personal character and keep building the right knowledge. And stay away from participating in the market. It's like being born and raised. As a kid you don't learn to do everything right if your parents only tell you things one time or if you don't listen and want to learn. They tell you a lot of important stuff many times, and you develop as you get more experience. So, it's the same way you have to grow as an investor - and sadly most private investors stay as investor-kids or investor-teenagers their entire life! The X-Factor is determination to never stop learning and learning the right things!" — Peter Gustafson, Denmark (Genius of Warren Buffett Course Life-long Learner)
