Top athletes have long been quoted as finding a "zone" that leads to the achievement of unimaginable feats on the field, course or court. I'm no RG3, but I'm reasonably athletic, so I can completely relate to the "zone." It's as if time stands still. You are unaware of surroundings, and there is this effortless execution on an action that yields serious success on a public stage. Just thinking about this nirvana makes me excited. As someone who made financial services his life, I have learned that the "zone" is easily found in the world of studying markets and stocks. I am currently operating in one of these zones -- one I would characterize as having ideas emerge from a mystical black hole, and where the winning views and calls outnumber the duds that send the phone ringing off the hook. Another aspect to this #StockZone is the freakish ability to start up a conversation with Mr. Market, and gain a ton of useful feedback in return for your time.
