World Series of Poker also finished yesterday. I’m a big fan of the lessons about risk (upside and down a la leadership and management) as well as embracing failure (‘know when to fold ‘em’) that poker teaches. I’ve shared posts before by the deepest expert in poker I know, childhood friend Aidan Lloyd, and his piece New Personal Worst embraces failure with particular vigour…

  • “I get almost as much of a thrill from setting a personal worst as I do from setting a personal best. That may seem strange, but it’s the truth. I love setting records of any kind 🙂 Last night, I set a new personal worst. I had the losingest 11 session stretch of my career, based on the number of profitable sessions within that stretch.”
