Over the years I have had many similar conversations. Some were talking about wanting a GM, some talk about changing MCF. What I have always said is there is no use charging in like the bull in a china shop.
First we must be still and learn the true nature of the position. It's just like chess. We have 30 plus years of history to tell us what hasn't work. We just have to peer through the illusions to see more clearly. Those that have been responsible for creating those illusions are not our enemies. They are in fact our friends. By being there and trying to confuse us, they are merely helping us grow.
Just like your opponents in chess. They are not your enemies. They are there to help you understand the game better. If you keep falling for the same tricks over and over again, then you just haven't learnt enough.
See through the illusions. Then find the courage to change. Understand first the nature of the position, then only can you form a useful plan.
Btw, this blog is dedicated to understanding the position. I do use personal examples from the public arena as they demonstrate the problem clearest. However it is important to understand that it is never personal in nature. So let me clarify here again. Personal means that no matter what that person does I am against him/her. Here I merely show the negative public impact of the actions and words of certain individuals. When their actions are positive I again use those examples to demonstrate the points. Can you see the difference?
