When you set up your trading, do you consider going off the grid?  Let’s take a peek at what this would look like.

No phone calls
No emails
No texts
No office/desk organizing
No multi-tasking
No Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or other social media
No interruptions from members of your household

Today’s environment with constant information streaming to our personal electronic devices and the pressure to “keep up’ makes it difficult to truly focus on the task at hand.  This task when you are trading should be watching charts, finding premium trades, managing trades and journaling trades.Deciding to enter a premium trade is only part of a trading business. Learning more about the technical indicators you use, watching when to change strategies, calculating rate of return and back testing are all a big part of trading.

Successful businesses, successful professionals all focus on one thing toward their success.

Most of us have a full plate, busy life schedule and try to fit it all in within a twenty-four hour day. Trading should NEVER be “fit in”.  Allot the time you can at a regular time frame daily and dedicate that time for your trading business.

Trading off the Grid can not only be refreshing to focus solely on one thing and allow yourself the uninterrupted time, but it has a high potential of improving your trading skills. Once you develop this habit of trading off the grid, you might employ this methodology to other aspects of your life.  Always being in on-demand mode can be mentally and physically tiring and keeps us from frequently completing tasks.

Here is a challenge, how much time does it take for you to resume your task after being interrupted?

Trade off the Grid as a test and find yourself more satisfied with your results,
