“Play the ball, not the opponent”
Too many daygamers get distracted by any one particular girl. They’re caught up in micro-managing the situation with her that they perceive as “unique.” Emotions kick in and they’re reactive to the pickup, losing sight of the overall process.
Zoom out. Learn and drill the major principles of Game. They’re as unchanging as the laws of physics. Don’t get distracted by thinking of a certain girl as “different” when it comes to these fundamental premises.
A tennis player might not like his opponent because of a long-held rivalry, and thus play too aggressively, weakening his game. Or he might be playing an old friend and therefore play softer, which can also get him into trouble.
It’s the same with women. Don’t let your heart rule your head. Play the Game, not the girl.
