Jeremy Silman's Training Time Recommendations

In a recent interview, Jeremy Silman (author of a number of good chess books) made the following training recommendations for players ranked under 1900:

Tactical puzzles: 15% of study time.
Studying Positional Concepts: 15% of study time.
Analyzing/deconstructing your own Games: 30% of study time.
Analyzing Master Games: 30% of study time.
Openings: 10% of study time.

He also recommended purchasing his book "SILMAN'S COMPLETE ENDGAME COURSE" which I have purchased personally and am finding to be very good so far.
