sure. I mean I don't think this is a "strategy" or an "omen" or anything. I think it just trains your eye and mind to focus on the end goal. Keeps your priorities and goals in mind.
it probably depends on your natural style too. My natural style has always been to survive as opposed to what may be considered the opposite mindset which is to accumulate or build a stack.
I naturally linger on the right side of that continuum unless I actively pull myself toward the center through pep talks, or visions of success, or memories of success or whatever.
I guess this thread and idea I have is much more about the mental game of poker than any specific tactics.
