Just quit my 6 figure job! for the night. And now I'm gonna make fat stacks at 10NL

This is the shortest term goal I can have.

I get out of work at 11PM. When I get home my family will be asleep. My goal is to play perfect poker (10NL 6max). Perfect poker for me will look like this:

1. No ridiculous stack sized bluffs.
2. No "worse than questionable" calls on river.
3. No tilt.
4. Do not stack off preflop vs. a <20 PFR reg with AK.
5. Quit when I get tired.
6. Out of my control but crack $500 on my BR (~-$450 now).
7. Post swings here.
8. No hookers.
9. Only one break for blow.

Let the countdown begin!

                        1. No ridiculous stack sized bluffs. [x]
                        2. No "worse than questionable" calls on river. [x]
                        3. No tilt. [x]
                        4. Do not stack off preflop vs. a <20 PFR reg with AK. [x]
                        5. Quit when I get tired. [x]
                        6. Out of my control but crack $500 on my BR (~-$450 now). [x]
                        7. Post swings here. [x]
                        8. No hookers. [ ]
                        9. Only one break for blow. [ ]
