I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Market Timing and Luck
"Luck is the sense to recognise an opportunity and the ability to take advantage of it. Everyone has bad breaks, but everyone also has opportunities" - Samuel

"Of course luck comes into it - It's all part of the numbers game. What's important to be conscious of is, if you prepare the ground properly, do the best you can, and you pay attention to the detail, you give yourself the best chance and being blessed with that luck" - Adam

Peter Lynch, the former manager of Fidelity's Magellan Fund, once said that he felt that over half of the share holders in his fund had lost money, based on when they had bought and sold Magellan. This is a fund that has averaged over 18% a year for the last ten years, and over 22% a year during its lifetime (since 1963)!

What can we learn from Peter Lynch's above saying?

Not market timing; then what?
