My 2020 Goals: Awareness

In 2019, I tried to slow down. I meditated, learned, cooked, and played without rushing to the next thing. Although I assemble my backpack in the morning while brushing my teeth, I have single-tasked and de-optimized other parts of my life just to remind myself that those seconds aren’t so precious to go crazy over.

Meditate Daily

And we have arrived at the last blog post reviewing my 2019 New Year’s Goals. Although some people save the best for last, I procrastinated and thus saved the hardest for last. The short answer is that I guess I meditated maybe 4 out of every 5 days this year. Let’s see how I can […]

Retain More of What I Learn

In my last two posts, I reviewed how I did on my hobby goals of tabletop gaming and cooking. Now I’m left with my two less leisurely goals. Retain More of What I Learn When I wrote this goal, I didn’t know how I was going to accomplish it. I felt like I had sought […]

In my last post, I started reviewing my 2019 goals with the easiest one: playing more games. I’m continuing this trend from easy to hard by reviewing my cooking goal. Cook without a recipe once a week

Prior to last year, I reviewed my goals in the same post as I shared my new goals in. Last year, I had too much to say about my past goals that I had to split it a review post and a goal declaration post. This year, I have so much to say about each […]

2019 New Year’s Goals: Slowing Down

Although I’m posting my 2019 goals announcement after my 2018 goals review, I actually ended up doing them out of order. By the beginning of December, I was already thinking ahead to my 2019 goals without having looked back on 2018. Of course, I ended up refining the goals and tweaking the presentation, but I’m […]

Welcome to 2019! Like the last two years, I did a complete life review of how 2018 went and what I want for 2019. During that process, I evaluated progress on my 2018 goals and set new goals for 2019. In past years, I combined the previous year’s goals review with the new year’s goals […]

New Year’s Goals 2018 Edition

Welcome to 2018. Surprisingly, I had a backlog of blog posts ready, so my New Year’s Goals are the second (not the first) of the year.

New Year’s Hopes: 2016 Edition

Despite this not being my first blog post of the year, I have not forgotten about New Year’s Hopes. As a reminder, New Year’s Hopes are like Resolutions, except with less of the false sense of confidence. Before diving into this year’s, let’s review last year’s hopes. Old 2015 Hopes 1. Get more sleep. Technically, […]
