The RSA skills test would be the closest thing to an "accepted progression" I can think of. Other than that it is just deciding what you want to do and mapping out the steps to get there. As a speed guy I have different expectations than a session skater. Backwards or side skating skills are nice for me, but they really aren't a focus. Not that I don't have plenty of those skills from years of being on skates, but there are people who are much better at backwards skating than I am whom I would smoke in a race.
You don't improve by training until it hurts; you improve by training after it hurts.

I love the phrase "I quit". It beats more of my opponents than I do.
