Linear Progression is the Key
***Linear Progression VS Random Exploration***
I am making great progress because I am focused on linear progression and not on random exploration.
I will explain the difference between the two.
Random exploration is what you see many people do on the Systems section of Lottery post.
Every week they post a brand new system. They explore a new way to play the game. A new angle on the game. A new arrangement of numbers. A new way to relate numbers from a year ago to today’s numbers. A new way to do a workout with the last 3, 5, or 10 drawings to get a hit. A new way to use last night’s number to get a hit today.
Well, I have news for you.
This will NEVER end.
There will always be new and interesting ways to look at the numbers. There will always be new and fascinating discoveries related to how numbers relate to each other. There will always be a new and different way of relating numbers to each other. This random exploration can go on to infinity.
Random exploration has taught me one thing; unless you put your foot down and make a definite decision on a specific way that you will approach the game, the numbers will keep fascinating you until the end of time. You will keep making interesting discoveries and finding interesting patterns. There will be no end to this.
Linear progression, on the other hand, comes about when you make a definite decision on how you will approach the game and you keep improving your system based on this ONE approach.
My specific approach to the game can be summed up in just two words: Positional Dominance. That is what the Reference Box is based on. Positional Dominance (PD) is the theory that straight hits are determined by the current most dominant digits in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd positions. That is my anchor. That is what I have decided to base my approach to Pick 3.
There are many ways to approach the game; this happens to be my specific approach to the game right now based on my current understanding of the game. If I come up with something better in the future I will change it - but right now it’s the best theory I have to explain how straight hits come about.
Having this as my foundation makes linear progression possible. Now I can move forward and keep making improvements; something that you can NOT do when your focus is just on random exploration.
So I started out with the basic Reference Box.
I got feedback, made some improvements, and then came up with the Game Index.
I got feedback, made some improvements, and then came up with the Rundown system.
I got feedback, made some improvements, and then came up with the Pick 3 journal.
I got feedback, made some improvements, and then came up with the Grid.
I got feedback, made some improvements, and then came up with RB7.
I got feedback, made some improvements, and then came up with F14.
I got feedback, made some improvements, and then came up with F26.
This progress was made possible (and will continued to be made) because I have a definite organizing principle; Positional Dominance.
This one clear organizing principle makes it possible for me to keep making progress on one track.
Keep that in mind next time you are fascinated when you read about a brand new workout or Pick 3 system. There will never be an end to these new systems.
I am not saying that you should not study other systems because I am personally always looking at other systems and strategies. I think this is actually a good habit because it keeps your mind active and gives you ideas that you would have not otherwise even considered.
However, I am always looking at other systems through a filter and that filter is PD. I will only change that filter when I find something better and so far I have not. When I look at a new system the question that is running through my mind is “how can I use this system to make my current PD based system even better?” That is all I care about.
Here is the bottom line; (1) put your foot down and adopt a definite approach to the game. Be firm on this. This will immediately help you avoid distractions and stay focused. Once you do this you immediately put yourself on the path of linear progression.
(2) Create the best system you can based on your organizing principle.
(3) Back test to get feedback and use what you learn to improve your system.
(4) Keep improving your system and making it better and better.
You do that and you can end up being rich one day $$$$$$$.
