I view the economic recovery, the capital markets and our long term investment strategies as a marathon, or in racing terms, “a long-distance endurance race”
So, when I see this economic recovery (growth) slowing I am encouraged by this for our long term goal. When things like manufacturing, employment and over-all economic growth slow (but not go in reverse-ie decline), it’s like backing off the throttle to save the engine and preserve the equipment for our true long term goal. How realistic would it be if we had all green lights and full speed, full throttle reading on all economic fronts? That would concern me a great deal.
Think of a runner in a marathon. If the runner is sprinting all the way through the first quarter or third of the race, you know what happens next right?
It may seem very silly to some, but let’s think of the tortoise and the hare. Can we really apply this “knowledge” to our long term goals? Many people would rather see the very strongest real estate, employment and manufacturing growth possible. But lets ask ourselves how sustainable that would be? Contact me to discuss this further.
