The key to improving yourself is having a plan and monitoring your progress. I have three pages under the Training Program tab. Below I provide a brief summary of each.
My Training Plan – I update my training plan periodically based on my performance. If I’m doing great on one aspect of my game, I move on to areas where I’m not doing so great. All the while, I’m constantly aware of my fundamentals. If I’m having a lot of trouble in one particular area, I go back and do additional work on fundamentals and seek advice from a third party on how to move forward.
My Scoreboard – If you want to improve a process you need to come up with a way to measure it. I update my scoreboard periodically based on my performance. This provides objective feedback, shows me where I need to focus my efforts, and allows me to track my performance over time.
Local Tournament Schedules – This is a list of the bigger local weekly tournaments in the San Jose area. There’s also a list of once-a-month tournaments.
