Lazy / Smart

Lazy investing is so effective, a study from Fidelity found that the best performing investors had either forgotten about their accounts or even crazier—they were dead.

Over time, slow and steady seem to win the race when it comes to investing. While active investors will tell you it’s possible to time the market and make a killing by playing stocks, the data seems to show otherwise, and set and forget investing is probably the easiest and safest bet for beginner investors anyway.
