Proof of my gross incompetence.



So my coach recommended that I start keeping statistics on my puzzle performance.  And he warned me in advance that the numbers will fluctuate wildly.  And he was right!  Yikes.


Here's what I do.  I have the Chess.com puzzles open on part of my tablet screen and I use the program Counter by DaisyApps and have it open on the other half of the screen like this:



So I am keeping record by tapping whether I got a puzzle right or wrong.  Then I just plug the information into a spreadsheet and look at the percentages:



And it calculates a 5-day running average, which is about 54% right now.


So what have I learned?  I suck!  LOL  Kidding... I was prepared to see numbers like this.   But even though my numbers are low, I can already see some development in my thought processes during games.  It is minor, but it is there.


I also learned that when I'm not feeling well, my performance is abysmal.  I mean, look at that 25% day I had.  I was feeling pretty lousy and could tell my mind couldn't focus properly.  So I gave up that day; but still documented it.


So that's where I am.  I will continue to plug away and see what happens!
