Dude in the stalemate example just move the queen to h6 and then you win it can't move any where else

Another huge mistake: Don't move your pawn away from F7, unless you have a really good plan, or you will regret it.

One mistake I see players making is going for an "ingenious" way to checkmate the other guy by sacrificing all there pieces and getting all tactical, unless the plan is definite don't do it, just obtain the advantage and go for an end game, you don't need to finish it there and then.

I always finding myself moving pieces for no reason. After opening, I'm often unsure as to what to do, so I just move bits around. I guess the answer to what I should be doing at those times is found in your midgame videos?
