I've been trying to teach the wife a lesson - she MIGHT be learning it right now - let's say she's in a hostile work environment where the boss might fire her and could hurt her chances for future employment
Today she had a meeting and every time the boss asked her a question she answered back with one - she was cagey, has a backup plan, and didn't give away too much - (unlike her previous few encounters with coworkers and the boss)
I've been telling her to be zen and cool - she just now is starting to get it - I am a person who avoids as much conflict as possible, but when it comes, the lessons I learned from poker immediately come to mind
keep your mouth shut - not because you have no pride, but because information is power - and what you give away is power to someone else - and vice versa
don't go on tilt -
look at the long game and not making a stand on every hand....
God I miss this game - but I miss poker more
