I would like to refresh the thread b/c I would have a question @you, but also@all:
After have now tested the shedule-plan for the last few months, I wanna give my impression:
It was for sure very helpful to play my daily day, especially regards to shedules, meals, breaks, theory stuff, learning stuff....
Regards to playing and just planning session it fells to be for pokerplayers very contraproductive.
The reason is that regards to playing you need as a pokerpalyer some flexibility.
Example to visualize the main problem:
A Pokerpro wants to play per day around 6h.
He plans to shedule per each day regards to the shedule-plan 3 sessions and per session he will play 2 hours. (-> B or even C-Game)
He feels during the 1st session tired and not good after the 1st hour, but force himself to play 1hour longer.
But during his 2nd session (between he made for example a mediation or a nap), he feels incredible fresh, focused and great.
And the time runs way to fast and 2 hours are over.
He could easily play 1 hour longer A+-Game...
Ok, i think i have not to explain more and you probably all notice the problem.
my personal solution:
I plan regards to my shedule-plan all other stuff (which is very helpful for me) except of my sessions/playing-volume.
Here I just write in my plan at the beginning "x-hours to play" (my planned volume) and then I shedule the session with allowing me some flexibility in the most seeimingly senseful way...
@all: What you think about it? Have you noticed the same or similar problems? How looks your personal solution?
What you think about it?
What would b your recommended solution here?
I think that these are great observations. In all honesty it's fairly rare that you'll be able to stick to the schedule you lay out for yourself day in, day out to a T. The point is to create a routine that you can stick with as closely as possible.
Will you need to make slight tweaks on a day to day basis? Absolutely. In the fitness program design game, we call this "cybernetic variation" or tweaking a program on a daily basis based on body feel. While it's not an identical situation, there's no reason why this same principle can't hold true in this context IMO. The ideal outcome is that you replicate a daily routine in which you maximize the amount of time you can play your A game for. As long as you feel as though you've prolonged that A game - even just slightly - this series was worth your time
I decided to create my own template similar to Travis' example in the video.
I made a Word 2007 document that I plan to send to Mimeo.com for online printing and binding.
Here's what it looks like:
Here's a link to download the Word 2007 document:
Note: Ignore the blue dotted lines you see, those are just grid lines for the Word table I used in the document. They don't show up during printing.
I know that the thread is already pretty old.
It is just that I have lost your todo-list-file which i have found by far the best file in this thread.
Any chance that you could maybe upload it one time again?^^
