I still am the worst grinder ever. I came back in July, played less than 500 games (these are hyper turbos im talking about!). In my defense, my parents were visiting Lebanon for a couple weeks resulting in very frequent family get togethers. My mother also went to the emergency room one day, although thankfully it turned out to be nothing serious. We had a national internet outage for ~2-3 days in the early part of the month. And to top it all off the electricity has been cutting off 5-6 hours a day instead of the usual 3 pre-planned, scheduled hours. This is apparently because in the summer everyone is blasting so much AC that the country's already insufficient supply of electricity becomes even more over-extended.
The thing is I always have SOME excuse for not grinding. Sometimes I'm coaching a lot, making videos and feeling productive in non poker ventures. Other times its the problems mentioned above. I HAVE to start eliminating all excuses and really build myself a solid foundation of a grind routine. I've tried tricking myself into grinding more tons of different ways, but none seem to stick. I'm not giving up, however. Eventually I'm gonna gain my mojo back!
This month I have decided it's imperative that I make Platinum star on stars.
There is some good news. I have begun waking up much earlier since my return from America (thanks in large part to my jet lag). I purchased a big-ass battery for my modem/router so that when electricity cuts off I don't lose WiFi and don't even have to switch to backup internet. I have read blogs on self-discipline, read the entire book of "Treat your poker like a business", and resumed reading The Mental Game of Poker by Jared Tendler. The only thing left to do is just GRIND.
Ok I'm going to grind NOW and report back with a graph and mini report on the experience. Brb.
Ok first I had to poo. Now im going to grind, i swear!
Ok, here's my graph! Not a bad start for the day I guess
