This is kind of embarrassing to admit but here goes:
I don’t know how to correctly wash and dry clothes.
Stuck to the wall in my office are step-by-step instructions left by my beautiful wife so that I do not screw our clothes (again). The saddest part is they’re 100% necessary.
Just because I’ve lived on my own before and used a functional washer/dryer before does NOT mean I knew what I was doing. I’d just grab as many dirty clothes as I could, stuff in as many as the machine allowed, fill the detergent up to the line before dumping it in, set the knobs on whatever setting I thought made the most sense, and let it ride.
The dryer was exactly the same unless I needed something unwrinkled or dried fast, in which case it was “high heat” all the way baby.
Doesn’t it blow your mind thinking about how many boring things in your day-to-day life you do a certain way simply because it’s how you’ve always done it?
Sucking at most of these auto-pilot activities have pretty minor consequences (like your wife glaring at you for shrinking her favorite shirt and making you step-by-step instructions like a 7-year-old) but others are extremely important.
In poker the easiest place for you to go into auto-pilot mode and assume you’re doing a “good enough” job is preflop.
It’s a frequency thing. Each hand begins with preflop, you’ve played thousands of hands, so you’re probably holding your own, right?
I used to think the same thing about washers and dryers but you already see how very wrong I was.
I cannot overstate to you the impact making preflop mistakes has on your winrate.
They turn an otherwise crusher into a marginal winning player, a winning player into a losing player, and a losing player into a HUGE losing player.
But they are SO easy to fix!
