Ok, this is the confession of a chess junkie. I first began to explore the possibilities of chess.com at the suggestion of a friend from another site. Trusting his advice, I checked it out and decided to move my activities over here. All well and good.
Now the confession. On the other site, I was a rabid tournament player with at least twelve active tournaments on the go at all times. Sometimes with over sixty games or more at a time. Then I came here and started several more games. aaahhhhh! So, what to do??? Self inforced re-hab. I have stopped all my tournaments as best I can, am playing down what games are left there, (less than twenty now), withdrawn from the league, withdrawn from the team, and cancelled my membership there. Once those last games are finished, I am gone.
More re-hab. I found myself falling back into old habits here, but I am determined. I hereby vow to restrict my games to those with friends and team games. I will do my best to stay out of the tournaments. The object is to get my total number of games down to less than twenty. It is my hope that I can then improve my chess a bit this way. More quality, less quantity.
What prompted this sudden change in attitude? Starting up my own team has given me new insight. I will keep my numbers down and devote more time to the actual team and its members. I shall strive to be the team leader I feel these ladies deserve.
