It is still a process, but learning to account for wind in both disc and shot selection.

You're not alone. My game plateaued (but not necessarily at a high level ) about 4-5 years ago... but I've hit a lot of courses since then.

- Improving my putting is more important than throwing 10 feet farther
- It's more fun to throw 10 feet farther than improving my putting...
- You don't have to throw 100% power with a 13-speed on every tee just because it's a par 4, plan for the next shot and play for that
- On the same note, putting 100% power into your throw will many times make you strong arm and throw shorter
- Mids go very far, and take a lot less room to work than even a slow fairway driver
- I don't need more discs to fix my game, I need to practice
- Disc golf is really helping me recover from my burnout
- Disc golf is awesome
- The disc golf community is awesome

There are many more, especially technique related, but I let more experienced players cover that part.
Don't sleep on putter rollers!!!

Focusing on getting my weight off my back leg was my biggest lightbulb moment.

No big lightbulb moments but I’ve had an overwhelming number of tiny little lightbulb moments that have progressively been helping my game.

It's harder than it looks IMO. I've tried a little bit. Danny has a video on it. There are a lot of "don't throw a roller" in these conditions that people should listen to.

When I realized that a disc golf swing had the same principles as a ball golf swing, which was about 3 months after I started playing disc golf. I played 20 plus years of ball golf including tournaments, so it has made it easier for me to understand what I should be doing with my disc golf swing. But it doesn't mean its physically easier. Still gotta get those memory muscles working, and that takes patience and time. Feels good during those moments when it happens.
