You can only get good at chess if you love the game. You need to be endlessly fascinated with chess and see its infinite potential.
Enjoy the adventure. Losing doesn't matter. Every game should teach you something. Ensure to play people better than you and be prepared to lose. The more you learn, the better chance you have of winning.
Don't feel that you have to set out all your pieces. Start with the pawns, then add the pieces. Understand how a pair of bishops can dominate the board, or the rooks can take paws in the endgame, and why the queen and knight can work together so well.
Once you know the basics, use online resources to play and help analyse games. Find human opponents too. If you become really serious, join a chess club in your area.
Find a player you like and follow their career. For example, Bobby Fisher played clear and understandable. Other legendary figures include Morphy, Alekhine, Capablanca, Tal, Korchnoi and Shirov.
If you want to start playing over-the-board tournaments, you need to join the chess federation in your country. You will get a rating after playing a certain number of official games.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
