This is going to be the year of more.
If 2018 was just a year that drifted by then I can’t afford to let more slip past, especially my last full year of my thirties. If the past few decades were to get ready for the best years of my life then I need to make sure that I don’t waste this opportunity.
So I plan to fill it with more.
In fact I’ve just seen a post that has told me to stop using ‘tomorrow’ and from today I’m going to make more of life (although being in comic sans we do have to ask questions).
As this is a new start I’m scrapping the backlog of goals I had that go back to 2013 and starting afresh. Instead of focusing on what I have done less of let’s think about what I need to do more of.
- MORE writing – this one is a bit of a no brainer considering that I am writing these goals. Maybe typing a few more words a day will help me with my typing skills (which have declined in the last year) and also give me a creative outlet to relieve stress?
- MORE reading – sure I read a lot of Reddit, Buzzfeed, The Washington Post and a string of RSS feeds but is that really reading? I need to pick up a paperback and work on it, and not just on holiday. I’m glad GRR Martin is running behind because it means I’m not dropping back on ASOIAF.
- MORE vegetables and exercise – 2018 had started well but has ended poorly. I’m too scared to step on the scales and update my weight but I have a feeling I am closer to my all time maximum rather than my minimum. 2019 is about eating better and actually using my gym membership, and having MORE self control about eating salty fatty food.
- MORE hobbies – at the moment I have none. You could class a bit of evening gaming and catching up on my Netflix queue as an ‘interest’ but it’s not really that productive. Instead I want to learn a new skill, and one that is useful and has a result I can be proud of.
