Feel free to read it and also feel free to comment and give advices. Thanks

      Did you raise your rating using own methods you talked in an article?

        When I was at about your rating, I learnt structurally in UVA, learnt the basics, got more confidence, and thus got Expert rating rapidly. (However, I don't recommend you to learn from UVA because of the judging issue they have now).

        After getting expert rating, I was wondering why I can't advance more than expert. Everything is kinda a plateau and I was asking why. Then I realized just around this time that I was learning wrongly, I started to solve problems randomly in CF (not structured), reading hard techniques and just learning it on the surface which is quite not beneficial.

        So those that I mentioned in the article are the things that I wish I have in mind when I was / am at plateau and I think this might be suitable for beginners who are struggling and not having significant improvements.
