    Enjoying this one so far. Had a few thoughts here, and hope you don't mind if I include them.

    One thing was implied but maybe not explicit. I've found that its good to focus on setting goals where you control nearly everything that contributes to your success or failure.

    Also, if its a new goal (quite different or challenging), always treat it like an experiment. If we're learning to achieve goals, failure is just as valuable as success from an experimental perspective.

    Last, poker rewards/punishes and this not only confuses our in-game decisions. Rewarding yourself for solid progress on your goal helps so that "short term poker results" are de-emphasized.

    On that last point Jared Tendler's recent article has some great stuff to add. Check for yourself, but I liked the connection he made between failing to identify real progress and the tendency to abandon strategies that are working. Setting goals also means establishing what progress looks like.
