  • SumoMe

I am typically not one to blow my own horn.  It has nothing to do with humility really.  It’s more the fact that typically when it dawns on me that things have been “going pretty well of late”, Murphy (who hates me) applies his %^&*# Law and, well, I’m sure you can guess what happens next.  So I should know better but, to review:

  1. I’d rather see a list of predictions you got wrong rather than ones you got right. Everyone shows calls they [supposedly] got right and many of them are hucksters.

    At the very least, if you’re going to show calls you got right then also show calls you got right (preferably in a 1:1 ratio).
