I recently watched a short interview with poker pro Faraz Jaka being interviewed by Pokernews. Nearing the end of the interview, he shared advice his school counselor once told him when Faraz hit bottom from losing his 6 figure bankroll playing poker at a young age - “Think of your problems like a rug. You can’t lift a rug all at once. You have to lift one corner at a time, then it becomes a lot easier.”
Makes sense to me. I tend to compile all of my problems into one lump sum that in return completely weighs me down. Taking one problem at a time instead of all problems at once and conquering each problem fully seems like the way to go in order to be successful.
