Establishing Goals for the New Year
A new year has arrived, which means many successful poker players are setting up their goals for what they want to accomplish in 2016. PokerStars Team Online player Katerina Malasidou is giving advice to those that need tips on how to establish their goals for the year in a blog titled Setting Your New Year Goals.
Malasidou breaks out her tips into four main points including being true to yourself, having a plan, depending on yourself, and keeping things realistic.
The second point of having a plan might be the most important on the list since simply having goals with no idea on how to achieve them will usually not get you too far in meeting them.
Discover on the PokerStars Blog how to establish your goals for the new year.
