I look back at this year and see how much I “phoned in” my performance all year long.
The numbers aren’t lying either.
2011 was a year full of stupid mistakes, a lack of interest, and a severe inability to take risks.
I’m not proud of much this past year.
I held on when I should have let go and I lost grip of what was important.
As I move into 2012, I need to remember one thing: Eventually I need to push all-in and risk everything. I will either win big or lose small. I will never know if I don’t.
If I write this same post next year, it is because I’m still sitting at the table, short-stacked, realizing I’m no longer getting free drinks.
