What Are The Correct Habits Of Retail Investors?

Recently, I am reading a book called "The Coaching Habit - Say Less, Ask More & Change The Way You Lead Forever", by Michael Bungay Stanier. It's quite a good read and giving me a different angle of coaching. 

I am almost done with the book and learnt a couple of critical questions to ask when we are performing the role of coaching (whether in work or personal life). This also set me thinking : what should be the correct habits of Retail Investors? What if I changed the title to :

"The Retail Investors Habits - XX Less, YY More & Change The Way You Invest Forever

What would be the XX and YY?

Of course, I don't have the perfect answers for this, even if I have, different retail investors might view it differently. Having said that, I don't mind giving my personal thought, here will be my humble answers and why :

"The Retail Investors Habits - TRADE Less, INVEST More & Change The Way You Invest Forever
By Trading I meant "timing the market" by following market movement (I know a couple of my TA friends will not buy it) and Investing I meant "time in the market" by invest for longer term (FA friends will agree more with me on this). 

What about you? What is your BLUE and RED pills?
