Re: A family father's path through life

I took a look at the forecast I did here some time ago. Financially speaking, we are soooo lucky! I mean: we work, we can pay for the education we want for our children, we can cover all of our needs and even save some money every year. Of course next years saving will be more difficult (growing kid...

Re: A family father's path through life

I've had a hard week due to stomach pain.. Although I haven't had an episode in the last decade (nothing besides 1-2 days) historically had such episodes (they used to last about 1w / 10 days) since high school, and at some moment concluded they are caused as a stress reaction.. I hope this one fini...

Re: A family father's path through life

Breaks Time to sum up! It seems breaks are advisable, so I'll give them a try: When I'm working on my own, I'll try to fit in 1 hour alarms so I can make different kinds of breaks (depending on the situation). Mu choice of breaks would be: Short breaks (1 to 2 minutes): the 2 minute webpage in the ...

Re: A family father's path through life

I found second resource unuseful.. maybe it was me. The first had something: But Gazzaley and Rosen forewarn that taking the wrong sort of breaks might make us more susceptible to boredom and may actually backfire by making us want to take breaks more often. Repeatedly checking our phones when we ge...

Re: A family father's path through life

Update on routines: For the working routine I've been reading and thinking about what to do with breaks.

Re: A family father's path through life

Thanks @Zanka and @Steveo73!! I have started working on the routine: First step is to apply the learnings about sleep: DW and I finish our evening chores between 22:00 and 22:30, so that would be the time to go to bed and read / recap.. No electronic devices after that time (there shouldn't be eithe...

Re: A family father's path through life

A few things this time.. Purpose I think I have run out of dreams.. I mean, there is a list of things you want to do / accomplish in your life.

Re: AE's Journal - Round 3

Hi AE, Welcome back then! I need a concrete, measurable way to hold myself to my goals or else I tend to lose track of my progress. I already use spreadsheets and my paper journal, but I want something more formal and structured to organize those reflections. Having so few time to spare, the reason ...

Re: Zankas poker-journal

]Thanks! The rake is so high that the correct strategy is to fold 85% of hands on average, at least if you play lowstakes. Can you unpack the logic behind this calculation? Besides.. you journey is a lot more than poker.... My GF keep telling me that "if you do things that you know are good for you ...

However, it’s not nearly as good when we are both slaving away FT. We get nitpicky and frustrated with each other.

Thanks Zanka! I never met a pro :) (I just read a pair of books, learnt the basic maths and play sit'n'go online from time to time) You said you track every single hand you play..

Re: SWB's path to financial independence

Hi SWB, Kids do seem to root people with their educational requirements. Unless one goes the homeschool/unschool route but that definitely seems to be the road less traveled with all of the fears and struggles that go with taking the less popular route. I think it's common to also think kids need so...
