Do you have trouble taking the long-term view with your investment portfolio? Do you find yourself frequently reacting to short-term market swings and fluctuations? If so then it may be time to change your point of view. One way I have found to help me focus more on the long term with my investing portfolio is by viewing my investment portfolio as a business. In business it is all about the bottom line. Long term strategy and implementation is focused solely on increasing the companies after tax profits. This should be the same focus you have with your own portfolio.
