July 20 – I Am Accomplishing Things!

Comments off 456 Views0


Feels so good to be cranking through my list of shit to do. I decided that I need to start writing my “to do” list again in order to keep myself focused. My list this week is a little nuts, but I have some extra time, so it should be no issue. With that I got about 6hrs of writing done today, a shortstacking session in, and even went out and saw “Inception”. Good flick, and def suggest it for those that like thinking movies. Was almost 3hrs long though, which took me by surprise as it certainly didn’t feel that long at all.

The book is coming along nicely. I am almost done with the flop section, and then I am on the homecoming stretch. I finished “Playing Big Hands On The Flop” which was…long to say the least. It came out to about 15 pages single spaced (before images and hand histories). My real goal with the book is to break away from the standard “here is play X and how to run it” and go towards more of a “here are the parameters that make play X a solid choice.” In doing that I try to look at most angles and explore the multitude of the decision matrix. This is great as it preps the work for my upcoming COTW on “planning”.

Random note but the other day I decided to watch a documentary on dreams. Was very interesting to say the least. The idea was that dreams are effectively our brain trying to make sense of past and current stimuli, and test them in a safe environment. So our brain acts as a simulation room where it can test out different actions and situations and help us in real life when similar situations arise. Such a cool concept and makes total sense, especially given my current dreaming. My dreaming over the last few months has actually been my brain working out different problems, business and poker, and testing different things out. I thought my brain just wasn’t shutting off, but it is nice to find out that my brain is doing what it is supposed to be doing =)

Past that, everything has been going well. Just cranking away and crossing things off the to-do list. I need to get my mom a present this week (no real idea what to get her) and also renew my car registration (and dealing with DMV bureaucracy is ALWAYS a fun time!). And on that note, I’m off to sleep and wake up to crank through some more writing and grinding. Hope all is well.
