If you set your goal as making money, you tend to play poorly when you’re losing, because you’re focusing mainly on outcomes. However, if you set your goal as being a good decision-maker, it won’t matter whether you’re winning or losing, because all that matters—all that matters—is the quality of your decisions, not the outcomes of those decisions.” – John Vorhaus, on results vs. decisions in poker.

Most problems encountered postflop actually begin before the flop. You ended up in a tough spot because, well, you went down the “tough-spot” road with poor preflop decisions and hand selection.”
