It’s clobberin’ time! And goal-setting time! (With all due respect to Derek Sivers and his TED talk, I have to tell people my goals. I think announcing our goals, even though sometimes we may give less effort in achieving them, is just one part of the puzzle. We’re social creatures. Whether we like it or not, we need other people. A lot of times, the motivation to set a goal in itself comes from wanting to impress others. Wit ... <a href="/blogs/nawhead/83761-SNAP-out-of-it-">(continued)</a>
Change of message time. Whatever I’m doing right now isn’t working. This Zen-Buddhist-Philosopher poker player thing I got going on now is nice, but it’s just talk. And talk is cheap. I have goals to achieve. Places I want to be. I have to get busy. I gotta get volume, gotta get motivation to get volume. I have to strike a primal urge. There’s nothing healthy about this need to become the best. And there’s nothing in ... <a href="/blogs/nawhead/83211-Change-Greed-Is-Good-">(continued)</a>
From Wikipedia: Ben Hogan is generally considered one of the greatest players in the history of the game of golf and widely acknowledged to have been the greatest ball striker ever to have played golf. “You hear stories about me beating my brains out practicing, but I was enjoying myself. I couldn’t wait to get up in the morning so I could hit balls. When I’m hitting the ball where I want, hard and crisply, it’s a joy that ver ... <a href="/blogs/nawhead/82211-Old-Master-Speaks">(continued)</a>
I’ve been losing my focus this past 2 weeks. I could go on and on about what I think my problems are, sure, I could do that, but then I’d be sitting here for 2 hours writing on my blog instead of playing a session. I work 40 hours a week, and I’m trying to become an expert in another field at the same time. Sacrifices have to be made. Sacrifices will be made . That’s just how it is. I’m not going into lockdown like a pouty ... <a href="/blogs/nawhead/81851-Lockdown-Pt-2">(continued)</a>
[I’m just going to keep posting sections from Mastery on my blog. I love books that keep growing on me. I love it when my first impressions are wrong. Unexpected gifts are that much sweeter!] An excerpt from Mastery: The Keys to Success and Long-Term Fulfillment by George Leonard: Good Horse, Bad Horse In his book Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind , Zen master Shunryu Suzuki approaches the question of fast and s ... <a href="/blogs/nawhead/79571-Good-Horse-Bad-Horse">(continued)</a>
“I have gathered a garland of other men’s flowers, and nothing is mine but the cord that binds them.” – Montaigne A QUOTER’S GUIDE TO OPTIMISM “Fortitudine vincimus” (By endurance we conquer) – Shackleton family motto “That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing itself is changed, but that our power to do is increased.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson “Never give in, ... <a href="/blogs/nawhead/77511-A-Quoter-s-Guide-to-Optimism">(continued)</a>
[repost from forum thread: High Neuroticism – quit poker? ] I just finished reading George Leonard’s “Mastery,” and even though it was written almost 20 years ago, it distills everything else I’ve read in the past 3 years about talent and skill into a short, if not qualified, read. I say it’s not qualified since the author wants the reader to “surrender” (being one of the 5 master keys) and just believe this is h ... <a href="/blogs/nawhead/75791-Master-teach-me-your-ways">(continued)</a>
What a strange word. Blog. It’s almost like a Scandinavian religious word or something: Loki 4:22 ‘And Valhalla was empty for a time and half a time. Loki shook the heavens with his voice, and it let loose a giant blog. And the humans were afraid.’ I’m thinking this is an excellent way to keep an online journal. So that’s exactly what I’m gonna do. I’m Canadian, in my 20’s. I am a student at University in fall and winter. After having ... <a href="/blogs/theboymustdie/68531-YO-">(continued)</a>
The most badass advertisement for a book in the history of the planet Earth? So we’re reading this book, right? Hell. Yes. And as a result, we’ve changed our running workouts to “crazy, wild-eyed man” 400 meter zombie-chasing sprints [ed: the world slows down when you’re trying to go faster, try it!]. Other than that, we’ve been a busy little human guinea pig experimenting with the paleo diet. Or just No Carb diet as it ... <a href="/blogs/nawhead/64181-Brand-New">(continued)</a>
