  1. Alternate attendance and preparation weeks, but force attendance so that I don’t get complacent (don’t have to go to many tournaments, just one is enough)
  2. -- Preparation should be centered on 2-3 recent performance issues (gameplay or otherwise) and 1-2 learning objectives that correspond with general interest.
  3.  
  4. I did a great job of abiding by this plan. I went to both RoMs and felt like each tournament reflected positive progress with respect to my goals (as much as they applied, anyways).
  5.  
  6. Solo practice, meditation/visualization every day
  7. -- Meditation/visualization after water + when I wake up (lets me get comfortable and use on tourney days)
  8. >> So morning routine goes Water -> WHM -> Yoga -> Meditation, should take about an hour
  9. -- Solo practice when I get home from work.
  10. >> 15 minutes of basics, 30 minutes of punishes on top tiers
  11.  
  12. I was extremely consistent with mental health stuff -- only meditation was lacking, which actually seems to matter a lot. Solo practice happened somewhat regularly, but my 'flow' got disrupted as a result of having to go home for a week or so. I'll need to try to ramp up the frequency on that, but having UnclePunch has been a lot of fun. I actually ended up playing with people a lot this month instead of solo practicing, and thankfully that was productive.
  13.  
  14. 3-4 days a week of VOD Analysis
  15. -- Associate urge to netplay with urge to analyze instead
  16. >> Getting creative: keep Smash notebook downstairs by the computer before every study session. Forces me to use downstairs computer, be efficient (chair is uncomfortable for longer periods of time), and subtly associates the computer with more than just netplay
  17. -- Make sure to create list of testable/practicable items and/or insights to internalize.
  18. >> Positions, tactics, situations, opposing mentality, etc.
  19. >> This is really really important; even small observations could be useful to test
  20. >> Don’t forget basics — positioning/”situations” (refer to smad if necessary), why someone gets hit, and reaction cues
  21.  
  22. I didn't get the hang of it until the very end of the month, unfortunately -- this is largely because I kept trying to improve at playing faster + more consciously using netplay. As always, it seems like I'm too content to spam netplay because it "feels good" and it's productive. To the extent that it IS useful, that's not bad, but given what happened in the matches with me and Sami, it's clear that my knowledge of lots of important things (threatening ranges, win conditions, edgeguards) is lacking, and playing more won't fix that.
  23.  
  24. OVERALL:
  25. + Mental health strategies were consistent
  26. + WHM, shower, yoga was consistent
  27. + Was very productive whenever I spent time playing the game
  28. - Not enough meditation
  29. - Too much netplay
  30. - Still not enough video study

  49. -- Make sure to write practice items down so that I can internalize via CPU/20XX/netplay
