Timing is everything in life… as in poker….
As the Full Tilt advertisement says “Poker is a game of patience and well timed aggression”
In poker timing really is everything. You need to wait for the right time to make the right move. How many times do you see someone sitting for ages, and then finally making a move, but they run into a monster hand… the right move at the wrong time. Or how many times have you had pocket aces on the big blind and everyone folds round to you? (sick – I hate that! Especially if im short stacked) No matter what hand you have in poker, timing is everything. You get your timing wrong in a poker tournament, it can mean the difference between winning millions of dollars or loosing.
Timing is everything can be applied to everything…
INVESTING: This is absolutely true when you adapt any stock market investment strategy. If you buy or sell at the wrong time, it will mean the difference between profit or loss. Timing is crucial and those who watch the markets, and learn to recognize opportunities as soon as they arise, learn how to predict how local and world events will shape things financially will benefit from investment opportunities that others miss – and more importantly you will see them in time to get in early. Knowing when is the right time to borrow and when is the right to not borrow, is the difference between financial freedom or financial ruin.
COOKING: Again Timing is the very basic success principle to cooking. How long you cook something is crucial to how good it tastes, how good it looks, how safe it is to eat and also how well you feel after you eat it!
LOVE: Meeting your true love, your soul mate, well again it’s all kinda a matter of timing isn’t it? Being in the right place at the right time. Saying the right thing at the right time. Or just being ready for love at the same time as someone else… You get your timing wrong in love… it can mean the difference between having a fantastic relationship or ending up old and lonely. Timing is everything in finding your true love.
BUSINESS: The art of good timing is crucial in business. When releasing a new product, or launching a new business, a new movie, book, whatever it might be… timing has to be right, the market needs to be ready for it, and your team needs to be ready to do what it takes to make it a success.
PERFORMING: Performing artists like actors and comedians know that timing is everything. Without the right pause, the right word, the right gesture, the piece falls apart.
MEDICINE: If you catch a problem in good early time you will be able to treat it more effectively. Your timing is everything in taking medicine. Take it in the times instructed and it will be helpful. Skip doses and it loses its effectiveness, take too much of it and it can be fatal.
Timing really is everything, 1 minute can make a massive difference, making the right decisions and doing the right thing at the right time… that is the secret to success… in life and in poker.
