that's good advice. sometimes things don't go right. from bettin on football for ages, i usually only have 1 or 2 months that make the whole season worth it for me. its not uncommon to be slightly behind after the end of october. november is usually a good month, and i usually do really well in the bowls, mainly because i've done my homework. there's only like 2 weeks in the nfl season where i'm sure i'm going to win big too...just because i've done homework. so never try to make up for a loss, your wages of sin are an investment...these things go down slightly over a period of time and go up over a period of time. knowing you have the patience to not freak out is what keeps you basically break even, or what you can really consider break even if you've lost "rake" over a period of time, and stick to your game is what keeps you in it.
i've been having a tough time with work lately, injured, lost jobs, lowered income, crap like that, this whole year. just recently, i had some mutual funds that have been autodrafting from my checking account for years...overdrafted me. my dad is a financial advisor, i told him we need to just put these drafts on hold. he disagreed until i gave him a speech about how i'm just not bankrolled for it, haha. sure, i'd like to be putting money away, but there are times when you really have to adhere to your bank. putting money somewhere i can't touch without penalty for a good while is the same as going outside of your bankroll. just stay the course and play within the rules you set for yourself to begin with
