In this episode, Mark talks about how the majority of investors take the investing process for granted, and as a result, are not fully aware of the complications and dangers that stock market investing can bring about. Mark indicates that investor's "short-term" thinking serves as the primary culprit which lead to investing complications and dangers in the stock market. Rather than being fixed on indexes, historical performance, costs and hidden fees, investors need to look at the bigger picture and think about the value they are receiving from their investments. A few of the important questions that revolve around "value" are "What are my goals", "How is my investment plan going to enable me to get to my goals", and "How much risk should I take to accomplish my goals".
