Schedule a week off from work. 

Play a lot of (sanctioned) tournaments in 2014.

Well, the scheduling part is a bit light-hearted, depending on your situation.  But if you work where there are restrictions on off days or how many workers can take off the same time, note that Worlds is in prime vacation season.

Invites to Worlds is based on points gained playing tournaments.  But for most Worlds, it doesn't matter a lot; after the period for the invited players to sign up, they're open on a first-come basis.  Most Worlds have not filled at all.  (This varies a bit depending on which Worlds, Pro or Am, and which division you're playing in.

That's for going to Worlds.  If your aim is to win, or at least do well, that's a much longer answer.

 

I am planning on playing am in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I assume I have to play sanctioned events. How do points get accumulated?

Playing in sanctioned events,you get points for everyone you beat or tie in your division.  The number of points-per-player-beaten depends on tier, and division.  Here's the chart:

Thanks David!

On the points thing, you need to play in well attended divisions where you can beat people.  The higher the tier the better because higher tier events have a better multiplier.  Of course, you have to be a PDGA member to get any points at all.
