Every time when you set your target and work on it, slowly and gradually you will be able to achieve your entire target. That is the time when you should challenge yourself and you should do a little more than what you can do. This habit of challenging every day to yourself and taking target little higher than what you can achieve will help you to enhance your competencies.
Every time when you are writing something and you know that I can write 10 pages in one hour, slowly ask yourself; can I do 11 pages this time? And then keep it 12 so every time, setting up higher standards for yourself. This will help you to build your competencies and within one year you will be all together at a very different level.

Log book alone can be your one of the very powerful revision tool.
