You want to take your skill at peak performance. That must be hard . This is how your brain grows. It is difficult to get things because they are valuable , but we call valuable to those who hinder our desire to achieve them.
We learn when we are out of our comfort zone . When struggles is when you get smarter . The more time you spend there, the faster you learn . It is best to use ten minutes, or even ten seconds high, very high quality instead of spending an hour mediocre quality. You want to practice in the limit of your possibilities , obtaining it again and again , making mistakes , realizing those mistakes and succeeding again.
Most owners who are developing their talent use this magic tool called notebook. Keep a diary of activity. If you want to improve , you need a map, and that day is your map . You can write there what did you do today , what you tried to do, where you made mistakes. It is a place to think. It is a place to store information. It is a place to be able to track your progress . :P
I think the quote was something like 'good judgement comes from experience, experience comes from bad judgement.' A volume of studied failures can lead to success given enough time and dedication to your chosen end.
There are many ways to learn, depends on the individual. There is no one correct way.
Just always be open to learning. Poker is a game that seems so simple but me after 36 years each day learn another few things in poker. I have played my 10,000's of hands and yet I still learn adapt grow etc... as a poker player
this is what I find most satisfying and amazing on this game.

Now I see that there are many regular players with positive graficos giving coach but in my concept, poker is much study, odds, and put into practice with a lot of volume games, review the tournaments played, learn from their own mistakes .. .
I think there are a lot of good ideas and quotes here, but its difficult to really assess your development, especially if going through a downswing. I would suggest setting small goals for yourself. For instance, maybe over a period of six months you might read six books, play x number of hands, and specifically focus on a few key strategies. You're always going to develop just by playing, but by having a narrow focus you'll be more aware of nuances in the game and your own style.
