It's the mapping out part that I seem to be missing. I've watched a lot of videos but, with a few exceptions, most approach it as "here's how to do it" and leave out the prerequisite part(s).

Maybe skating doesn't really need a laddered learning method (e.g. basic math -> algebra -> geometry...) outside of being able to roll unassisted. Might explain why I see some very good skaters who don't know how to go backward or guys who can skate fwd/bkwd/side but have never slalomed. Not an issue of not being capable, just hadn't tried it before.
