Three key messages we learnt from Patrick O'Shaughnessy:
1. Go Global - make sure you look outside Australia. The biggest share market in the world is the US; get involved
2. Be Different - don't always follow the crowd. For good returns, consider trying to be a bit different; rather than just ASX200 index, consider one that is for growth, or momentum, or emerging markets; having a mix is important
3. Get Out Of Your Own Way - automate what you can, be consistent; take the emotion out of buying and selling

Stocks and resources discussed:
