I spent several years playing poker, most of it a waste, but I learned a few things.
I learned that even when you think you have it written all over your face, most people can't see it.
I learned that sometimes its easier to tell a lie than it is to tell the truth.
I learned we often overestimate our strengths, and underestimate our weaknesses.
I learned to never hold on to what you have, because it can be taken from you in an instant.
I learned that when things don't make sense, its time to start asking questions.
I learned that confidence and a positive attitude are as essential to success as preparation.
But the single most important thing I've learned is that if you play your cards right, there's always another hand.
