This is an excellent article. One question I have is how to train visualisation skills? Apart from solving problems are there other things I can do??

Many thanks and keep up great work

Hey William! 
Thanks for your nice words.
Try playing blindfold with your friends. 
Try to solve puzzles, where there are not many pieces.
You can start with our daily puzzles. You can watch at the board, try to memorize the position, close your eyes and try to find the solution.  Whenever you lose the position in your mind, open your eyes and look at the position.
After some time, you will see your visualization is becoming better.   
Pre game rituals such as eating blueberry parfaits, listening to Jerry Garcia, Tupac, and Chuck Mangione, while smoking mad blunts to the dome and getting highly medicated puts me in the perfect state of mind to dominate on the chessboard and do really well in chess tournaments. I also reccomend bananas, gatorade, and chocolate to help fight off the chess dementors. No this is not a joke.
