@crance99 - Thanks. 

I think it's quite helpful and easy to do. I saw a guy do it on another forum and it was really nice to see his progress. He also stated several times that it kept him motivated and improve continuously. Therfore I decided to do something simular...

Review Goals week 2 

* Poker workbook for math geeks: p54 - p82 => Fail, only did 2 pages

* Play 4 hours of 4NL => Completed

* Review Cold calling, overlimping, iso raising and squeezing chapters in Microgrinder course "The preflop Mastery Game plan"  => Completed

* Post 4 hands on this forum => 50% Completed. I only posted the hands where I had doubts. I will adjust this goal as I don't want to post hands just for the sake of posting hands... 

I didn't meet all my goals for this week as I forgot the kids didn't have school on Friday and I helped out a friend with cartrouble on Tuesday. So lack of time really.

Current bankroll:

In bank account: 29.36€

On Unibet:

Total: 124.32€

Some stats (since July):

Hands played: 4280 (665 last week)

Winning - Loosing sessions:  22 - 16 (this week 7 sessions of avg 35 minutes - I try to add 5 minutes every week)

Win rate BB/100: 23.4

Goals week 3 (starts on the 18th of September)

* Poker workbook for math geeks: p54 - p82

* Play 4 hours of 4NL

* Review stealing & blind defense + watch play videos in Microgrinder course "The preflop Mastery Game plan" 

* Post hands on this forum

Great job at working at your goals. I hope you don't mind but i think i am going to steal your format for goals. I keep studying but never set the goal to do something specific.

As I will join my wife on a business trip to Italy next week (and Spain the week after) there will not be a lot of time for new goals. 
So the only goal is to finalize the chapter on Turn math.

As I will not be able to play or study for the rest of the month, I will already do the review now:

Review Goals week 4 (starts on the 25th of September)

* Poker workbook for math geeks: p82 - 104=> Completed

Review Goals for September:

* Spend 80 hours on poker (including study, play, blog, posting hands, etc) => 60% completed (spend 48,75 hours in total - 15,5h on study - 18h on play and  15,25h on various stuff like this forum, updating my result sheet, etc)

* Poker workbook for math geeks: chapter on Turn math - page 23 to 104 => 100% Completed

* Review Microgrinder course "The preflop Mastery Game plan" => 100% Completed

* Play 20 hours of 4NL on Unibet => 90% Completed

* Post 10 hands on this forum => 100% Completed

Current bankroll:

In bank account: 29.36€

On Unibet:

44.97€ in Cash

50.64€ in Cash tickets for 4NL

Total: 124.97€ (+8.38 for this month)

Some stats (since July):

Hands played: 5605 (2530 last month)

Winning - Loosing sessions:  29 - 20 

Win rate BB/100: 18.11 

Conclusion: Working with goals helps for me, so I will continue when I am back from Italy. To bad the effort is not really reflected in the win rate, but I had a really bad day as I lost 3 buy ins on a single day. It was just one of these days...
