I currently have a rating of 1976 FIDE standard. My chess goal until the end of 2020 is to read at least 5 chess books (and study them carefully, of course). I also want to play at least 30 games with FIDE rating calculation.  And my last wish is to beat at least 4 2100+ players and 2 2250+ players. :-)

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!

I've been playing board 8 in the Lichess4545 league for over a year now, having increased my lichess classical from U1200 to mid-1500 in that time.  My 2020 (into Q1 2021) goal is to get onto board 7, which will require me to gain about 100 points.  I can put 30-60 minutes per day and will do whatever is recommended after I have my one-on-one with a ChessMood GM.

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 (?)...
