Drawdowns in Sports

I was watching the Indianapolis Colts against the Dallas Cowboys yesterday. It was a fun game to watch. Although I am not a fan of either team, it was painful to watch Mr. Peyton Manning. He is in one of the worst slumps of his career. Mr. Manning has thrown 11 interceptions in his last three games. His former coach mentioned that he has not seen him do this poorly since the early 2000’s.

I realized that what I was watching was a man in drawdown. It occurs to everyone. Bad cycles and times are a part of sports, trading, and life. Mr. Manning is a future Hall of Fame quarterback. At some point he will come out of this as he came out of it in the early 2000’s. The lesson for all of us is to persevere and work right through these negative periods.
