Well, I can teach you if you want. Or you could use the lessons to learn

I think the new players who want to study openings and read slow down their progress. If you don't like those things, play smart and develop your pieces, coordinate them and look for tactics, study your game results. Progress will come with time if you do it right.

"... for those that want to be as good as they can be, they'll have to work hard.
Play opponents who are better than you … . Learn basic endgames. Create a simple opening repertoire (understanding the moves are far more important than memorizing them). Study tactics. And pick up tons of patterns. That’s the drumbeat of success. ..." - IM Jeremy Silman (December 27, 2018)

But I would say if you don’t want lessons just play one 15-30 min game per day and take at least 30 seconds to look at the position before making a move. That should help you make the best move and help you get better. 

I disagree with your idea my friend. People who make bad moves need to be shown WHY they are bad moves and WHY a certain move is better.

 

I meant that but I just felt like it was necessary to sat

Just play. Reflect on the one thing that made you either win or lose. Repeat.
