Not a good idea to completely ignore your opponent, it's a good way to get checkmat.. and that's what happened.

Yeah always check your opponents THREATS first! If there are viable threats you have to decide a few things:

1.) Is it even a real threat? If not then just ignore it. Goto 2
2.) Counter-Attack - cause your opponent to react to you!
3.) Defend - even while defending try to be productive by bringing new pieces out to the undefended area with tempi!
4.) Move order - 3 attackers doesn't always beat 2 defenders piece values being equal. Always be on the lookout for forced moves!
5.) Prophylaxis- if there are no immediate threats improve your worst placed piece first! Form a PLAN!

Following these rules you will find that your pieces will more frequently find themselves on better squares. Having better squares for your pieces will create opportunities for them to work better together in combinations and win games!

This will get you to at least 1600+ :)

Here is a game where white did ok in the opening but then when it started getting slightly complex white didn't know what to attack first :)

White could have played on after 25. Rxf4, but not so much after 25. Qc3??

13..g6?! looked odd to me. I think I also would have played 11..Qd7? though.

I kept wanting to cxd4 in a bunch of positions, whereas you built up more sensibly. I realized I have a problem where I try to make such captures early so I don't have to think about them even when this is bad.

Yeah don't be in a rush to capture just to release perceived tension because you are afraid.  Many times doing this throws away your initiative and maybe the game if you're not careful. The hallmark of a good player is the building up of these small advantages. I know of a good series of videos for you to watch on youtube that is both fun and instructive. Actually I think you'll love it. It's a guy named Hutch who plays blitz games with a gm telling him what he should do and why. He's completed 16 videos so far! The GM's name is Tal Baron! The first video in the series is right here...

Will check out. I usually just watch chess24 stuff. I've seen millions of lectures though, icc/chesslecture/chessbase.
