Default What`s all part of being a pro?

I think it`s not just puting lots of hands in and play good poker.

Do you try to eat and live helthy?
How much time do you take off and go for holiday.
Are you doing sth special before starting a session (meditating, jogging)?
How do you try to keap poker fun for you?

I don`t know if there is any interest in these topic, but perhaps if everyone ives away one of his secrets, we could all get better pros.

I never just sit down at the computer and play immediately when I wake up. I think the brain needs 15-30 min to function properly to play. I always used to donk off money for the first 30 min of my sessions before.

I've taken five or six months off this year (yes I play professionally) I don't recommend that.

im actually pretty interested in peoples responses for this. i have huge leaks in this department. i take very poor care of myself and play on bad hours vs bad players. id def be more focused if i ate better and exercised, would be able to put more hours in etc.

the key to being a long time winning pro is making poker less than 1/5 of your income over a 10 yr. period from the time you start.

I'm not sure I see how that is possible unless you dedicate like no time to poker whatsoever. Obviously limon has a lot of experience in the long term in this field. I could see the comment being related to time investment, but to actual financial earnings? If you are not in business or finance or in some other financially lucrative field, I just don't see how the money can be comparable.
