I got so frustrated with myself (lack of discipline and degenerate gambler tendencies I never knew I had) at the end of January that I just had to take a break for a bit. Then the career I'm trying to leave started getting busy again and I decided just to fully stop trading for awhile and make money at my side-hustle. After about 3-weeks of basically "giving up" and starting to think about what engineering vs. trading career I should try next, I decided to give this another go but this time I'm not going to spend all my time trading. I'm going to spend my time learning the past material and only playing the best setups.

I am banning myself from trading for 1-week until next Friday 11/15/2019. Despite how much I'm learning I have troubles with impulse control and FOMO and just took 2 of the stupidest worst trades ever. I'm so mad at myself but also I can see that I'm spending too much time "learning the hard way" in front of my trading platform all day long. I'm going to turn off E-trade for 1-week and just study video lessons and DVD's and hopefully come back refreshed. Oddly, it's having a few good trades in a row that makes me really motivated but also makes me want to get back into a trade again. All I want after a good trade, is another good trade, but I need to remember to be patient for that next good trade.

I've never updated or even learned how to use my wall since joining 10/25/2018 3-months into my Tim Challenge , on top of career and family, I went through a massive health scare, wasn't sure I'd make it through, lost many months to treatment/recovery. Made it through. Ditched the old super-stress career and renewed for another year but this time I have the fire in me. I'm going at this like the professional student I used to be. I'm giving myself another year to make this first and foremost and am lucky enough to still have a side hustle to keep some dollars rolling in. I am going to trade with tiny positions until I can see positive results and then size back in to work towards freedom which is the whole reason I'm in this.
