This thread will be where I collect game reviews and study notes to help track my (hopefully) improvement.
I’ve been wanting to start a study journal for awhile, and when I recently stumbled across Andrew Jackson’s video on Deliberate Practice, I realized that a study journal might be just the way to impose some discipline on my own go practice. Andrew notes that one of the keys to improvement is getting feedback, and simply playing often isn’t enough to accomplish that. Instead, in order to get better, it’s necessary to make a conscious effort to determine what worked and what didn’t. That’s my goal here.
Specifically, to get that feedback, I want to (1) Force myself to review every game I play and (2) Force myself to note what I’ve learned every time I watch a video/lecture/pro game. That way I know I’m not just going through the motions of throwing stones around.
In this thread, I plan to collect those reviews and study notes, but feel free to jump in with your own corrections/comments/suggestions to these notes.
