Keep the Money Real

An idea to think about to manage money so that it remains real. Many years ago (1984) I had a client as a stock broker. Every time she bought a stock she deposited the money into the account. Every time she sold a stock she took it out. She was a very successful trader mainly with her own ideas. But, what she told me was, "that if I put it in and take it out then it becomes real. If I just leave it there it is like play money." I am not suggesting to take it all out every trade, but don't forget to take some winnings away to keep it real.
