Seven Words on How to Invest Well [Investing]

York Times personal finance columnist Ron Lieber offers a seven-word
guide to choosing how you invest your money. Lieber writes:

The author Michael Pollan offered an elegant seven-word
mantra in his best-selling book “In Defense of Food” that provides
clarity amid the bounty of choices on supermarket shelves: “Eat food.
Not too much. Mostly plants.” Boiling down investing is a similar
exercise: Index (mostly). Save a ton. Reallocate infrequently.

explains that (much like choosing a productivity tool or system),
sometimes the hardest part of investing can be sticking to your
choices. Most experts, he writes, agree that adjusting your investments
more than every six to twelve months can be unnecessarily costly
(hence, the infrequent reallocation advice). Do you hand-pick your
investments or trust a mutual fund manager to do the dirty work for
you? Can you sleep at night without checking your investments’
up-and-down activity every day? Share your investing tips in the
comments—and get four more finance basics from Lieber in the full
