You're thinking very linear. You can't assume linear progression. Sometimes you don't sleep well, or will miss a meal, get in a fight with your gf, etc.

Just push yourself. Planning to always get better is fine, but I wouldn't put too much effort into planning out that linear growth.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing
