Weekly Advice: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

A great advice before the Saturday grind begins.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe was a German writer and statesman. His works include epic and lyric poetry; prose and verse dramas; memoirs; an autobiography; literary and aesthetic criticism; treatises on botany, anatomy, and color; and four novels. In addition, numerous literary and scientific fragments, more than 10,000 letters, and nearly 3,000 drawings by him exist. A literary celebrity by the age of 25, Goethe was ennobled by the Duke of Saxe-Weimar, Carl August in 1782 after taking up residence there in November 1775 following the success of his first novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther. In 1810, Goethe published his Theory of Colors, which he considered his most important work.


“Knowing Is Not Enough; We Must Apply. Wishing Is Not Enough; We Must Do.”


These words by Goethe apply really in the poker world. There are so many players, who simply doesn't develop beyond certain point. They have a good knowledge of the game and they would love to become top regulars, but their motivation to play is low for some reason. When you do not put the theory into practice, you will hardly ever realize what are you doing right and what simple doesn't work that well.

Say a top football player doesn't attend practices, sure, he knows how to play, but there are many factors that keep him in shape, and not only that he will stop developing as a player, he will regress. The same goes to the poker players, you will find it extremely hard to grow with 20 - 30 games a day. Find your motivation and practice!

Just wishing for something to happen will hardly ever do the trick.
