As you might notice, all these notes have to do with my approach to poker, but more importantly; they have to do with my approach to life. When I got bullied as a kid, I teached myself to not be dominant in any situation, to stay away from those who shout more than they actually bring to the table, to just to ‘do my own thing’ in the background and to find joy in that. Over the years this approach has brought me a lot, but lately and especially whilst reading this book, I have come to the realization that it has also cost me a lot. In economics they would use the words ‘opportunity cost’ here; by doing one thing, you miss out on other things. So this is why I’m currently working on keeping my attitude with regards to hard work and enjoying life, but mixing some more aggression, pro-activeness and risk into it in order to have an even fuller, richer life.
