Any Changes in my Study Plan?

Coach as you know due to lock down I have too much time for chess prep so I am concerned about my prep and hoping to improve my game to the next level. In the bottom I am sharing my current study plan.

1. 2 hr chessmood opening prep plus an hr revision of the previous day studied opening lines.

2. I am going to start a book called "woodpecker method" for tactics and pattern practice.

3. I am doing revision of all chessmood classical games and I watch 5 games daily and after that I am going to work on old streams which I missed.

4. I am also doing a chess book called "Amateur's Mind " by Jeremy Silman.

 That's all I am doing coach so kindly tell me if there is something more I need to add in my study plan so I will reach my 2000 first milestone. I am right now only 1465 FIDE rated. I will start playing more events whenever events will start in my country. I will not only play rated events but also I will play more club games so my board practice will be more better. 

If you think there is something wrong in my approach then let me know. Yes my dream is to become a Grandmaster and I do know that it's not so simple task and I know it's complex but I won't give up and I will do everything so I can achieve my goals. Yes I lose and I cry, yes I work and fail and I cry but I know failure is essential for future success so I will not gonna give up on anything. I am 23 right now and upcoming 8 months I am fully free so if in this mean time I can achieve even 1700 FIDE elo then my family will start trusting me more and more so it will be easier for me to work more without limitations.

Thanks again sir!!!

My funniest Chess Dream!!!
My funniest dream!!!!
As I wrote several times that I am now in the condition to prepare for events due to lock down so all time chess events and thoughts about it moves in my mind.
Yesterday, I went to bed with again chess thoughts and moves in my mind. I saw a funny dream and I remember something about the position that I was playing black and I was super better. I had nice hanging pawn formation and active pieces and on the other hand white had no active pieces. At some point I was winning too. Then a strange thing I saw. It was me who was playing white. This make me feel funny during the dream too. I felt like I was black and now how can I became white player. But ok it was just a dream. Another thing I saw was a chess book in my hand during I was playing event. In the end I had pawn on g7 and I took 20 mins and then played pawn promotion because I was trying to find moves for my sides and then I realized that oh! is it a pawn on g7? Then I realized oh! yes it's a pawn so I can promoted it and I said g8=Q. Then he said ok find a new queen and I went to another board and took one queen After some moves he resigned. After resignation he said to me that may I call Arbiter. I said yes but I felt scared too because the book was in my hand. I thought he may claim that I used the book to win against him. But he had different thoughts in my mind. He told me that he will tell Arbiter that we pre-decided the result of the game and I was like when we did? I did not even know you. After that my mom asked me to wake up and I was happy that I won one rated game in my dream hehehe with many funny things.
Summery of my funny dream:
Don't use a chess book during you play hehehe.
Do not change the pieces like ok I will play white now or I will play black now hehehe.

My mom thinks I am super crazy because I think of chess all time. Even in past, when I had no time to study I was thinking of how to find time for study. I am glad now I have 8 more months to study chess and in this mean time I can improve!!!

What you think guys, why I see this kind of dreams? Is it something wrong in me?
