Goals for 2020

A very clever person on MSE has devised a “20 in 2020 Challenge.  I’m joining in and have set the following goals for 2020:-
  1. Knit 20 balls of yarn (that's between 3 & 5 jumpers worth)
  2. 20 minutes a day learning French (via Duolingo and TinyCards)
  3. 20 minutes exercise a day for 20 weeks
  4. Read 20 books
  5. Try 20 new dinner recipes
  6. 20 gardening sessions
  7. Explore 20 new places
  8. Attend 20 "shows" (concerts/plays/films/BBC recordings)
  9. Do the 2020 Fashion On The Ration Challenge and keep within the coupon count
  10. Phone family/friends to chat 20 times (I'm hopeless on the phone)
  11. Lose 20lbs
  12. Mend 20 items of clothing (yes, that includes sewing on buttons and taking up hems)
  13. Declutter 20 items
  14. Run 20 miles (but not all at once)
  15. Save 20 x £20 out of my “allowance”(£400)
  16. Make 20 site visits for work, earning mileage 20 times (it goes to the car fund)
  17. Write 20 blog posts (in 2019, I haven't managed one yet)
  18. Log 10,000 steps on my Fitbit on 20 or more days (harder to do than it sounds)
  19. Have a party in the summer and invite at least 20 friends
  20. Watch at least 20 programs that have been on the DVR since 2018
And a special goal, number 21:  Post on TMF 20 times in 2020.  I owe that website a hell of a lot and I’d like to keep it alive.

Care to join me?

Nice list. I will think about it and may join you if I can manage to think of 20 things.

God bless.

I wonder if I can come up with a list. I'd need to declutter way, way more than 20 things, though. One thing a day for the year would make a small start.

I'm popping in a bit late.

That's a great list!

I've been doing the 10k steps a day thing... sort of. Most weekdays lately I manage it. But only by using both breaks and my entire lunch hour pacing around the parking lot at work.

On the other hand, I do it while practicing my Spanish (listening to Pimsleur on Audible, and the Coffee Break Spanish podcast). So that's two birds during that time, right?

I never go to TMF anymore. I don't think I'm the same person I used to be when I was there, and that's mostly a good thing. I'm glad that many of those friends are now connected to me on Facebook. I'd hate to lose all of you from my life.

Happy (belated) New Year, and I hope you're keeping up with your goals!
