Competitiveness -EV for Poker?

I realized something today. Competitiveness is not always an asset in Poker. Not in the actual playing, but in the psychological realm:

I had a very lucrative (for me) week last week- won about 60 dollars/BB's, with about two thirds of it coming on Friday and Saturday. Yesterday, I drop $20 and I'm upset.

WTF? Excuse me? The need/expectation of winning every session is really silly and unrealistic. I'm way up for the week, month...hell...the year, and I'm sulky over ONE measly $20 losing session? Please.

I'm gradually getting the whole winning/losing thing into perspective and tempering my competitive spirit with reality, but there's still work to be done, obviously.


Speaking of work, I'll soon be putting this blog to work. So, if anyone has an ad they want to pay me to put up, shoot me some info and a link and I'll give it a look-see.

I'm hoping to make enough money to fund part/all of my upcoming Reno/San Fran trip.
