    Another gem from Warren Buffett:-

    “Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”

    Look to the future and plant your seeds :)

    Let’s be honest, how many of us actually think beyond the next couple of weeks? Planting seeds for long-term capital growth is the only way to significant wealth. Time to start!

    Planning seems to be very important, but to do it you need deep understanding of the markets.
    Other point is that to start your trading education can be deemed as planting this tree for the future.

    Long-term investing is interesting, but markets can change in a short time, so the only way for such type of investment is to buy something like S&P 500 ETF, to be shure that you own the best companies possible.

    We live in a world where many people want THAT lifestyle before they can actually afford it - and spend years paying it off. I like the description of planting a tree being connected to education.
