Holding the Wrong Cards

Sometimes we hold onto something because it would be just perfect if exactly the right situation comes up. We hope for that situation, so we hold the thing.

“The Thing” could be everything from a card in your hand when you’re playing poker to an emotional state you want to maintain.

We want situation X, so we hold onto something that would be perfect in that situation. We forget to calculate the odds of that situation actually happening. Chances are good you’re just being a hoarder.

Drop it, take a new card, and play for reality, not fantasy.
