I took my 11-year-old car in for an oil change this weekend. To my delight the courtesy inspection didn’t find anything wrong. That’s a nice outcome for an old car. My car runs well. I hope I get a few more years out of it before I have to replace it.

You can tell already that I’m not a car guy. I use my car to get me places. I don’t need a fancy one. At some point, my car will die, and I will need to find a new one. I plan to focus my research on one that’s reliable, reasonably priced, and fits my 6’4” frame. That’s what I did last time and it worked out well. I found a way to make a reasonable choice with something I don’t enjoy at all.

I know many people don’t enjoy investments/finance. If that’s you, I have good news. You don’t need to pretend that you find meme stocks interesting any more than I need to pretend I like new car features. In fact, you’re better off not learning about meme stocks. You should find a long-term strategy you can stick with, and one that doesn’t require much work on your part. Might I suggest indexing?

If you really dislike finance, I suggest finding an investment advisor you trust to keep your finances on track, just like I use trusty mechanic to keep my car on the road. When you find a good one, they can really make your job easy.
