      Ive been a bit too focused on short term results lately. Im building up my bankroll and taking every loss personally and the same for every win.
      So because of this unhelpful focus on short term results, Ive come up with a new slogan which I have put on my wall above where I play.

      ITS NOT ABOUT WINNING EVERY SESSION, ITS ABOUT MAKING THE RIGHT DECISIONS.

      Anyone have any suggestions on any other ways to move the focus from short term results to long term thinking? I think for me, Im allowing my mind to move in the wrong direction sometimes.

      Anyway good luck keeping the eye on getting your money in good.

      Good thread

      Here's some of my tips :

      *Don't look at your graph while you play, wait after the session
      *Set volume goals, not money goals. (X amounts of Hands/SNGs instead of X amounts of $$$) <--- the best way imo.
      *Review your game, discuss with other player, sweat.
      *Don't look at your cashier while you play
      *Stop-loss limit
      *Time limit/Breaks
      *Tilt-management, find a way to get rid of the anger fast. <-- important for long term thinking.

      All of tips above should help you improve.

      Really nice thread. Imo a lot of players worries too much about the money they lose in the short term. If the decision that you've made was good and you've lost the hand, don't blame yourself. Just say for yourself:"I've got unlucky, I had positive EV and a villain played really badly in this situation. I'll beat him next time". All in all, continue playing at your best after bad beats.
