Thanks for the article! It reminds me of the book "How to Live on 24 Hours a Day" by Arnold Bennett.
For a couple months I was sticking to a strict schedule of doing tactics, watching courses, etc. But got more and more into watching Twitch streams and participating in non-serious competitions using time controls too fast for me.
I want to go back to my normal, boring study schedule. This was good motivation. Thank you.
@GM_Avetik_Grigoryan It's a short book and the first half is great. Second half is examples. The basic idea: people budget their money, but you don't hear about budgeting time. Every two years or so I re-read this book to remind myself that there is time: 8 hours for sleep, 8 hours for work, 8 hours for growth.
Thank you for the article!
I just have a question according to what we feel at the end of the day.
I have a lots of time to study chess (and a strong "WHY").
I study chess many hours per day (for instance today: 1h of calculation, 1h to study annotated game and I spent 5-6h to read two chapters from a book and do all the exercices related to lessons).
Now I'm done for today, I know I did a lots of work today but I feel/know I could have done more (for instance to work on another annotated game or one hour of calculation again etc.)
I'd like to know if according to you, I should work more when I feel this way or if I should be ok with this feeling because I planned my training for the next 12 months and I could risk to end overwhelmed and lost the track if I decide to work each day until I'm too tired to continue?
Thank you in advance
Thanks for another great article.
I am lazy like Svidler. The difference is that he won 8 times the very strong russian Superleague and I am an intermediate patzer. At least I don't waste my time playing bullet, puzzle rush or watching streams of beautiful 2000 women.
Commitment for 2021, put more hours studying chess.
This is a really nice structured article. I like that you gave different examples. I am only 11 so I have a lot of things like school but I can always find time for chess.
I think I was at a 6 or 7 last year at time management for chess. Earlier in the year maybe the first 5 months I was playing lots of blitz/bullet/rapid tournaments on lichess.
After June I started looking at books more and at tactics and in November I got Chess mood PRO membership and started watching courses and have learned a lot.
Thank You for all the hard work you guys put in to these courses.
I like this article very much. It is shorter than other but it richness is different level.
I tried to answer the question how i spent the last year regarding my chess? I think i did well but still i could do better.
This article is an absolute eye opener . Thanks to chess mood family
