I recently came across a wonderful infographic showing 20 mistakes that investors make, and which they should try to avoid. It reminded me that sometimes we in the investing world talk down to retail investors, many of whom are way smarter than those actually in the investment world!

It also reminded me of a parenting tip I got once. That was to always encourage a child to do something in a certain way, as opposed to telling them what not to do!

In an attempt to increase your chances of investment success, here are 20 things (yes, just 20!) that I encourage Irish investors to try and do with their long term investing.
