Aside from psychological aspects of trading what is your #1 trading rule?

Aside from the psychological aspects of trading what is your NUMBER ONE trading rule? For example I'm basically a beginner and mine at this point is always let the price come to you i.e. never chase it.
Thanks in advance and this is my first post.

My number 1 trading rule is knowing when to stop trading. This used to be at the bottom of my trading rules, now it is at the top as a sticky.

Never be satisfied with the state of your trading strategy. There are always improvements that can be made to make your trading decisions and money management better.
