Re: *****Official February "greatest place on the interwebs" Chat Thread!*****

Can anyone recommend me something that can help with motivation and time management and how not to be a lazy waste of space and all that sort of stuff. I am honestly the laziest person I know, and I don't know what to do about it. I even started slacking off in school to the point where I had to drop Calculus and Algebra because I was going to fail both... I'm an honours math student.

Happy Birthday, Rod! <memories>I remember when I first came here, your 10NL and 25NL videos were some of the first that I ever watched.</memories>

ive offered this to other ppl in the past:

for motivation...u figure out how many things you need to get done in a period of time (or for me, how many hours you need to work)...and give me $20 for each. then for every thing or hour you get done...u get $20 back. (the $ amount can be anything, so long as it's meaningful)

motivation is get ur money back, and yet it feels like a reward at the same time. very helpful imo

I'm a lazy ass too. Something that helps me is finding interest in a thing and focusing on that alone. This is the main reason I haven't played much poker at all over that last 3 or 4 month. I've just been focusing on another thing and pushing that forward.
Another good thing is if you set short-term and intermediate goals in addition to long-term goals which are "delayed goals" by nature.

Poker-wise the iron man program helps me. Although I hate to have to earn x points over y days to make an ironman level, it proved helpful for me to put in the neccesary number of hands.

Happy b-day, rod!

wish someone told me to do this like a month ago. I do it now tho.

Re: *****Official February "greatest place on the interwebs" Chat Thread!*****

I finally found my future career guys -- being a beer pong hustler.

The trick is showin up to the party late, so you're like 8x more sober than they are. Like candy from a baby at that point.

Oh and happy birthday Rod!!

How are the swongs? Is there a lot of variance? Does position matter??

*****MSN Messenger Help*****

Don't feel like starting a thread anywhere so I'll shoot out my question here.

I reformatted my computer and someone accidentally saved the wrong email & pw in the MSN. I since added the correct one. However she isn't very technically competent so now everytime she comes to sign in, it goes to the wrong one by default. How can I remove the wrong one from the list?

^ you on windows live messenger? On mine if you sign out there's a tickbox that says "remember me" and under it you can click "forget me", should do it.
