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.

1. Complete chess skill.
2. Improve my chess skills, prioritize based on evaluation.

2. Match my opponent data with my opening repertoire...
3. Match CHESSMOOD opening repertoire with my opponent data.
4.Prepare and exlpore this match repertoires a lot.
5.Simulate games based this preparation and exploration.
my goal is to improve the understanding of chess and to reach 2200 raiting on lichess by the end of this year.
I have divided my plan into 2 parts:
July-October , finish two Aggarrd´s books: Calculation and Positional play. and reach 2100 on Lichess
October-December, finish another of his two books: Endgame and Attacking chess, and reach 2200.
My goal for 2020 is to increase rating by 400 points at the end of 31 December 2020
To learn new theoritical and practical endgames
To learn the openings against caro kann, sicilian and pirc with white and against all sidelines of d4
My goal for the next 4 months is to train consistently everyday. I tend to get distracted easily and struggle to start working on some material until I finish it (for example, a book). I am keeping track of what I do daily so I am held accountable!
All the best!
My goal is to train chess at least 1 h every day. I think that if I can achieve that my playing strength should increase (?)...
1. Solving 1 puzzle a day from now on - maybe more but no pass.
2. Studying/looking at one classic game a day, every day, no pass.
3. Switching confidently from 1.d4 to 1.e4 by September 2021.
4. Refusing draws from higher rated players (OTB).
5. "No bullet/kein blitz" diet until September 2021.
