    Begin tracking the filters.  How often does Filter 1 occur?  Filter 2?  And so on.  You might see a pattern develop which will help determine which filters to turn on and which to leave off.

      sometimes you just got to walk away and get a hot cup of tea, take a deep breath and start again.

      Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

      For a lead role in a cage?

        If you're second guessing yourself then you haven't done enough research to have faith in your first guess.  First guesses aren't going to always be right but if you've done the research to support it then you are going be satisfied with it even when it's wrong.

          Have you tried third guessing?

            If you're just doing workouts with pen and paper/computer, and not putting any money down, then run both scenarios or more and see which one wins out (performs best).  If you are ready to spend big bucks, then I like the walk away, have tea, breathe deeply (I'll add meditate a little) and come back to it bit.

            Good Luck!

            P.S. keep in mind that when it comes time to put money on those ideas, you're ALWAYS going to second, third and fourth guess.

              Very often my second guess turned out to be the correct guess.

                Follow your habits... If your first guess turned out to be correct more than your second guess, then keep the first one...

                 

                I once wrote all 49 numbers (classic) on a peice of paper, started marking out the ones i believed wouldnt play that night. For some reason out of 29 numbers "17, 18, 19" were circled on my paper (apposed to X'd out). Those 3 numbers just stood out to me, but i second guessed, figuring since they were back to back they wouldnt play... That nights draw was 12 17 18 19 24 38 (I had 12/24/38 in the pool as frequent draws).. But because of my second guessing i didnt play 17 18 or 19.

                 

                Follow and record your guessing patterns, if more than not your first guess returned the best result, use it? Let It All Out

                JP Wins 2011: $3.00(1) Ten-OH, $7.00(1) PowerBall, $70.00(1)/$2.00(7) OH Classic;

                Scratch Wins 2011: $25.00(1)/$20.00(3) 100K A Year for Life, $5.00(1)/$1.00(8)/$2.00(6)/ENTRY(3) Cash Explosion, $8.00(3)/$2.00(7) Double Doubler;

                  Ahhh the old 2nd guessing gets ya everytime!  Can't tell ya how many times I have

                  chosen numbers to play in Pick 3 made the bet not won then the next day pick #s

                  again but not play & then #s I choose would have won had I played them.  One week

                  ago I was testing an idea & wheeled 8#s in the Pick 4 but didn't play them & had I

                  played them I would have won $10,000 as two out of those 3 days of testing I had them

                  in exact order so had I played them straight could have been up $10 grand in 3 days.

                   

                  My favorite is when I research & chart & make my best guess based on research & choose

                  8 #s to wheel in Pick 4 only leaving 2 #s unpicked & low & behold both of those 2 #s come

                  up in the next draw so had I played would  lost, now don't that just defie the odds or what!

                   

                  How can a person pick 8 numbers to play leaving only 2 out & those dang 2 numbers come

                  up That Just Don't Seem Possible   Statistically one would think the odds of that happening

                  are pretty low but it keeps happening over & over to me!!!

                    Would love to find an answer to that one, Perdue. Assertive people make a decision, right or wrong, and go with the best information they have at the time. Football coaches call the play based on the information they have and......okay, some wake Monday morning regretting it. In baseball, and every other sport known to mankind, you play the percentages.

                    Making decisions based on the information available is the best any of us can do. Then we live with the outcome. May not be pretty, but think.....of Wade Phillips....in his underwear!!!!!!
