I don't think of myself as a gambler, but the truth is, I have several gambles in play right now. I take a conservative, waiting position; it has served me well in the past. It is almost Zen: when the time is right, there are no doubts, the action flows naturally. Thinking about other things, it would seem I always take up this waiting position; I did the same thing in paintball, preferring to hang back, guard the gate, waiting for others to approach rather than actively seeking out a target. Time to change that attitude a bit, I think.
