The Beginning

I can't do long-term projects. It's the worst trait I have when it comes to work. Give me anything that’s urgent or a crisis and I can generate code and bug fixes as quick as anyone here. Make it a juicy project that needs my attention for a year and things have to broken down into short targets or I get bored with it very quickly. Not ideal when long-term projects are the road to promotion. As with life, so with poker. Having an aim to make X amount by the end of this year won't enable, empower, or invigorate me to achieve anything new in 2009. Therefore I will try to Keep It Simple Stupid and make small steps in the direction generally known as Up.

Step 1. Tonight - Remove the carpet in my hallway and WC and prepare the surface for laminate with a damp proof membrane and underlay.

Step 2. Tomorrow - Plan position of laminates on floor plan. Play the remaining $4 180's that I have to complete under my stake-deal. Prepare casserole for Wednesday.

Step 3. Wednesday - Lay floor with help from J. Bask in glory of a job complete.

Step 4. Thursday - Contingency day !

Step 5. When floor is complete get back to grinding the cash games, only play one tournament at a time while cash games are running.

Step 6. Win ?

Tolstoy wrote that in a contest of cunning, the peasant consistently defeats the intellectual, and he was right. Not because the peasant is smarter but because he doesn't have the self-doubt and the second thoughts and all the other mind tricks that make the intellectual out-think himself.

Is it just me, or can EVERYTHING relate to poker... maybe we are obsessed...

Everything can relate to poker because we're obsessed with it !

However, I don't think the same could be said for other games like football.
