Given the world we live in and the tendency toward instant gratification (I'm looking at you AMC Entertainment (NYSE: AMC) and GameStop (NYSE: GME) traders), it can be difficult to watch a stock you've purchased languish and fail to make progress day after day or week after week. Famed investor Warren Buffett has even addressed this by saying, "The trick is, when there is nothing to do, do nothing." On this clip from Motley Fool Live, recorded on Jan 29, "The Wrap" host Jason Hall and Fool.com contributor Brian Withers discuss the importance of patience for long-term investors.
