As a pro, I stopped watching poker after about 1-1.5 years of playing. I do it every day, don't care to see *terrible* live pros act a fool on television.
Insofar as state of mind, true Zen is reached when one doesn't even care about their daily fluctuations anymore. For example, my session yesterday. I'm pretty sure I won money at both cash and MTTs, but I didn't look. It doesn't matter. I final tabled one of the MTTs, I didn't look at the payout structure. It doesn't matter.
If I play good poker, the money takes care of itself. I try not to obsess about it as many players do. Money is simply a tool of the trade. If one constantly looks at bankroll and equates it to how many cheeseburgers or Mercedes Benzes they purchase with said bankroll, one is wasting tons of mental effort with no purpose.
