More recent research went further: formulas that assign equal weights to all the predictors are often superior, because they are not affected by accidents of sampling."

That was the turning point of my life, on and off the court."

The longer I procrastinate on returning phone calls and emails, the more guilty I feel about it. The guilt I feel causes me to avoid the issue further, which only leads to more guilt and more procrastination. It gets to the point where I don't email someone for fear of reminding them that they emailed me and thus giving them a reason to be disappointed in me."
