Focus on longevity of your business while investing.

Same way focus on longevity when trading is your business.

Read this thread if you want to become full time trader and increase your longevity in the business of trading

Here you go
First you should consider trading as any other business and evaluate it as one

When anyone starts a business he/she first has learned, gathers knowledge and understanding to run the same. So learn about your business

Find out different methods to run the business
Choose a method which you think will suit your personality.

Start small, do the actual work and evaluate. Trade small and follow the rules.

Have a Mentor to help you with your journey. As some problems he/she might have faced and can help overcome with ease.
If after some time you think this is not for you, move to some other method. Here discuss your emotions and issues with Mentor. Can really help.

Once decided which path to take the real grind begins.

At this point you can increase your capital a bit but dont go all in yet
You need to make sure over of period of time with different market conditions you are able to survive with your chosen method.

As you gain confidence add incremental capital.

In this learning phase, trading should not be your primary source of income
You should decide to go full time if and only if you have a large corpus and you are profitable consistently over 3-5 years with good corrections in market.
Large corpus could be generically defined as something which even if generates 8-10% is greater than your income from non trading activities
To Summarize so far:-
1. Learn
2. Start small
3. Have Mentor
4. Chose 1 Method which suits you
5. Be consistent and improve
6. Sizable corpus

If you want take the plunge as full time
On longevity need to invert on how you can blow your account

1. Borrowed Money
2. Leverage
3. Large Losses
4. High Allocation to single stock
5. Averaging Down
6. Not sticking to chosen Method or Plan
So from above you know what you need to do at basic level to increase your longevity in Trading buss

1. Avoid Borrowed Money
2. No Leverage until you have mastered your art and are profitable consistently
3. Avoid Large Losses. As simple rule you can have hard stop loss at 10%
4. Restrict your allocation to single position to 10% as simple rule to start with.

5. Avoid averaging down

6. Always stick to your process and plan.

Take 1 simple idea and take it seriously.

This article from @pvsubramanyam is about compounding and creating a 1000 Cr corpus for your kids…
From the day it was published, I am not able to get over this article ... have talked abt this to several friends ... it gives a sticky example of compounding and focuses on key aspects of compounding which we can control Principal and Duration
The 1000 Cr Plan is :-

1. Start with 25k Monthly investment and increment it by 5% every year (Principal)
2. Keep doing this for 20 years (Accumulation phase)
3. Let it compound for next 45 years

At the end of 65 years your child will have corpus of 1000+ Cr
