In the short term, in any given session, day or week, I simply want to make the best plays and let the poker gods decide the outcome. I know that the right play will make money in the long run. So, as has already been stated, don't focus on the money in the short term.
BUT, you have to look at money in the long run. The fact is, if you are consistantly losing money over a long period of time, you skills deserve questioning. So, if I were to show a cash lose for more than 10k hands, I know that I am doing something wrong: BR management, in the wrong games, making the wrong poker decisions, something.
So, short term you measure success by making the best play...BUT LONG TERM, you have to use money as your measurement!
