Life is a series of choices. Do I take this job or that? Do I talk to this girl at the bar or that other one over there? All a series of branches that lead to drastically different outcomes. Chaos Theory and the butterly effect writ large. All of these different choices lead to different outcomes, benefits, and drawbacks.
Taking time for Game is one of these choices.
Get enough sleep or go to the bar?
Go to the gym or go to the coffee shop?
Study Game or develop yourself professionally?
You need to be aware exactly of what you’re sacrificing on the alter of game. Poon is fun, but the opporunity cost can be huge if you put too much into it.
My Philosophy- time that you would otherwise waste (TV, fiction, porn, etc) should be devoted to Game; you minimize the opporunity cost.
