The opening of a game is very important. Work on your openings. Tania suggests that one should analyse at home and have preparation files created. You should update it every now and then. Before the game starts it can help you with a quick brush up. It should be short easy to remember prep files based on tricks that have worked.
Play tournaments and analyse your games. This done regularly will rapidly improve your game. Also, play blitz! Cause sometimes you just want to have fun.
Study a good chess book. These days I am on Positional Decision Making by Gelfand. It is brilliant. There are amazing chess books. So much to learn!
Spend some time every day solving a couple of combinations. It keeps the brain working and improves tactical vision.
Follow all the top tournament games. This is very important, and all professional chess players do it every single day. Try to guess moves.
