Take a moment to read an outstanding post. We have to play our hand out and we have to know when to hold them and when to fold them.

Good luck and success.

Do You Play Out Your Hand With People?

Think of the Kenny Rogers country song, "The Gambler." The lyrics have something in the tune like, "Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em." Well in poker this is pretty good advice, and with people the "folding" them I think should come early on. Weeding out a relationship, a person that is "not a fit" early on with your invested time or an incompatible win-lose feeling. But if you drag a win-lose pairing deep into time that is your own choice.

But the situation I am addressing is more fuzzy than that. In real estate transactions with a buyer and seller and in life with people in general it can be a roller coaster ride. I have seen people completely reverse on what they are telling me six months ago. Are they fooling you? No, they are adapting and learning. In real estate, they may have wanted the big backyard but that is no longer the deal breaker, what they really want is a large kitchen with all the latest updates. In relationships someone may say six months back they really are looking for a steady person who cares about them alone, but truly they want an exciting relationship and find steady too 'boring' for them. The roller coaster ride in any of situations takes time to even out the ups and the downs to get further down the track to see what is REAL, and not phoney or an illusion.

With cards as a VISUAL, you have to play out your hand with all your picking up cards and discarding cards, the little facts and observations and feelings that go into a HAND made over time.

Other than folding early,

PLAY OUT YOUR HAND. Many more chapters yet to be written to see the whole story.
