"Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind."

–Bruce Lee

The greatest martial artist in modern history knew that when you stay too rigid in life, you’ll easily be broken. His advice to "bend with the wind" is quite apt when it comes to investing. You see, when you become too rigid, and when you get too attached to a specific dogma — e.g., the "buy-and-hold" ideas of most financial advisors — your money can easily crack. My advice to you is to be like bamboo, or the willow, and bend with the wind.
