Also, having a goal for a certain week that is for instance becoming better in 3b pots is not precise and measurable at all.
Could you or maybe someone else also give some examples of self-improvement stuff you liked? I have no idea where to look for these things.
I try to keep it simple,and be conscious of my long term goals. I like to think in terms of tangible and attainable small steps that get me closer to my ultimate goal.
Eg. Weekly goals
- Swim 3 times a week
- Study hands for 2 hours x 4 days
- Meditate 15 minutes, mentally prepare for my day.
- Stick to my session stop loss
- Record myself for 1 hour and review it
Regarding specific technical issues like 3-bet pots. Set a goal like
- study at every 3bet pot in last 10k hands to familiarize yourself with typical ranges in 3-bet pots.
- Run pokerstove with ranges in 3bet pots, repeat repeat until I feel very confident with my equity with specific hands on different board textures
See next for self development.

I follow the Getting Things Done system (by David Allen) for daily task management. It's powerful and flexible, but has a steep learning curve because the system is intentionally open ended/vague. It's taken me about 1.5 years to find a system that works for my work routine. Start with pen and paper system and adjust it to your needs IMO.
Also here's a really good site related to the getting things done http://zenhabits.net/
For long term motivation and happiness stuff I like the old school Tony Robbins stuff. I have his audio series (expensive but a good lifetime commitment, can pass it on to family members etc).
There's many free podcasts on things like time management, meditation.Subscribe to a few, I'm sure there are some gems out there.
I like to break down my long term goals into life compartments. Like Social, Family, Career, Education, Financial, Arts, Hobbies/enjoyment. Each month I look over my long term (broken into 25 year, 10 year. 5 year, 1 year) goals. Ask myself "What do I do this month to get closer to my goals?"
