The best way to achieve our main goal is to divide it into steps and make an action plan.
Let's write our goals list, the plan how we will do that and achieve our goals step-by-step.
#COGRO (Constant Growth )
#Right Mood - Right Move!
1, Classics Section:
My goal is to study 1000 classics before december so from Jan 2021 I will play rated events and I wanna improve my positional play to the next level. I love Ulf Anderson's book which chessmood recommended soon I am gonna buy it and I also love Karpov's style.
I also will solve daily 20 mins tactics.
, I will finish all section of chessmood openings on my board and I will improve my openings too. So I will study 20 mins openings from openings files which I made during my study in past.
Total Study time for me is 3 hr classics and 40 mins in tactics and openings.
In case of online play
I want to reach 2000 in 3days per move games and maintain it too.
I want to reach 2200 in blitz chess.com and maintain it too.
I want to get 2000 in rapid chess.com and maintain it too.
While I have made a post on my 2020 goals here: https://chessmood.com/forum/main-channel/2020-vision it doesn't cover my online blitz rating goal, so I will give that here in this thread!
My rating in chess.com is currently 1750ish (give or take a few points) with my peak being 1876. I started last year at 1574 so had a peak gain of 302 points. Repeating that performance is supposed to be harder because your opponents get tougher as you go, but I say I am getting tougher as I go and not only will I increase another 302 points (2178) but will get the remaining points to hit 2200!
OK I ramble, 2200 it is! Lets Go!
As a chess player, my goal is to raise my USCF rating from 1800 to 2000 by 12/31. Here is how I will do it.
Play and learn CM openings. The challenge is my AADD (Adult Attention Deficit Disorder) that makes it hard for me to focus on the videos for more than a few minutes at a time. For this reason I will take the videos in small doses and focus on the ones most relevant to the games I play.
I will not play blitz games, at which I am pretty bad, and focus on quality over quantity. I will analyze all games played in the context of improving tactics, opening, middle, and endgame play.
I will solve tactical puzzles
I will study the classic games GM Grigoryan has analyzed for us
Of course, I will play USCF rated tournaments at every opportunity
