Today's motivational speech

By: mute07 @ 12:11 (EDT) / 400 / Comment ( 0 )

I started my day as usual; got up, had some breakfast, got to work. Now I had the chance to sit on the computer and just look around all my bookmarks to find something to read to move on though the day (things are a little boring at work) and I found a blog entry published today on by Daniel Negreanu. He is by far my favorite poker player, not only because of his skills as a player but also he seems to be a nice person to know, but back to the story… The name of today’s blog was “Making every day count” and reading it just made me wonder if I could do things different in my life the same way he does. He talks a little about a difference between setting a goal and having a clear intention and after reading that it seemed clear to me that I was lacking the latter.


Personally I found that very inspiring and for me he’s right; we should always give ourselves everyday a purpose, not just talking about poker but in our life in general. Sometimes when I’m driving to work I start thinking about how my day is gonna be or what is it I am supposed to do today and I don’t always find a good answer. I mean I do have some personal goals in my life but never really though very clearly about it, it’s like you know they’re there but you don’t seem to excited or motivated about it.

It’s time to make a change, I know that. You always have to give 110% on everything you do but also need to have the clear idea of what is it you want to achieve today. You can’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow you can only focus on today.

This may sound like a bunch of silly ideas to some but they seem like the right ones.  Time to put the mind into it and to us aspiring poker player give a 110% on the tables; remember you can’t control the results, you can only focus on playing well.
