I Was Distracted with Poker This Week

I realized about a week ago that WSOP.com is livestreaming the final tables of many of the events taking place this summer, which took away my attention from writing on the blog. Of course, this is something I learn about at the END of the WSOP, when many of the events are already over. Fortunately, …

I Don’t Know if It’s Important for Me to Excel at Poker Anymore

I haven’t played poker for a few months now. Probably the last time I played was when I was in Las Vegas in October. It might have been sometime before that or just after that trip when I last played poker online. The new update on Lock Poker took away all the fish, and I …

Why I Love Poker

love of poker

I love poker. Unfortunately, I haven’t played online in a while. The site that I use did a complete overhaul of their software. Not only is the layout completely different, albeit better, but part of the overhaul meant changing their server provider. So, you had to take a “scenic route” to get the update by …

Las Vegas, Learning, and Other Updates

I spent five days in Las Vegas, and came back with a cold. That’s the main reason why I didn’t blog right when I came back. It’s hard to blog when you’re stuffy and having trouble sleeping. I also came back a winner, but when you have a cold you can’t enjoy the winnings right …

The Next Few Posts are Pre-Scheduled for My Convenience

scheduling blog posts

I do leave for Las Vegas tomorrow morning, so while I’m out-of-town, I’ve scheduled some posts for the next few days. I don’t want to worry about posting while I’m visiting family and playing poker, so I’ve posted some articles that I’ve written for previous clients a year or two ago. Might as well, right? …

And Just Like That, I’m No Longer a Night Owl

no longer a night owl

I woke up at 7 a.m. this morning, 4:30 a.m. yesterday (I had a 7:30 a.m. meeting, in my defense), and 10 a.m. the day before. I don’t see myself going to bed very late tonight, so it’s looks like my whole night owl phase is over. This is actually good, as I am going …

3 Things I Could Do to Come Out of My Comfort Zone

comfort zone and september goals

In a previous post, I discussed how I was supposed to do something that takes me out of my comfort zone. I did that something, but felt like I could have done something more or better. I still feel that way, but I haven’t taken any time since then to think about the risk I …

Setting My September Goals

thinking about being awesome

I know it’s a bit late to do this, but better late than never. Part of what it means to be awesome is to set goals, to create action plans to meet those goals, and then actually meet those goals. I’m going to set myself for awesomeness for the rest of the month, and eventually …

Thinking about Being Awesome, and About Doing It

Lately, it’s felt like I’ve lost identity capital, that I haven’t done or accomplished much over the past few months. I’ve actually completed my SuperBetter quests to be more awesome (it was a very small Power Pack) and I don’t think I’m any more awesome than I was before I started. Granted, I still haven’t …

Streamlining Your Awesome

Supposedly, there are only two things you do each day: things you like doing/are good at and things you hate doing/are not good at. Streamlining your awesome(ness) means thinking about the things that fall into the latter category and finding a way to do them less or to have someone else do them. As part …
