One of the main things I'm trying to get my hands to do naturally without thinking. It's harder than I expected.

My main epiphany was to focus on which of the 3 strings the root of the triad is on for each shape.

It's in an unfriendly key as I'm focusing on them too this year, but that's a good thing!

Great way to learn! Once you get these shapes down, move horizontally across the strings, try moving vertically, and then in both directions. That way you will be able to see these shapes across the entire fretboard in any direction when playing. Great stuff!

Ask me anything on the theory board. Follow my theory course. Check out my personal site

These are always handy little triad shapes. They have saved my behind many a time playing through charts and sight reading. I always focus on what string the root is based off of for my chords and it works pretty well for me. This is definitely a great thing to practice and once it's solid you could easily build a nice warm up exercise out of this.
