These Are The Goals That 18 People Are Setting Themselves For 2020
Will you learn a new language this year?
"In 2020 my main goal is to try and not sweat the small stuff and be more patient. I'm a pretty time-efficient person but sometimes I need to relax a little and be a bit more flexible with my way of thinking. This way I won't let little things like someone being 5 minutes late play on my mind and ruin experiences for me – there are bigger problems in the world!"
"My main goal is to lose some weight – I’ve gained some since my mum died 18 months ago. Hopefully then, I will be able to get rid of my depression and anxiety too! I’m coming for you 2020!!!"
"I have been writing a fiction post-apocalypse book for two years. I hope to finish the second book by the end of 2020 and to get the first one published this year."
"Honestly, just getting a job that pays alright. I’m graduating undergrad in the Spring, so I’ll be fortunate enough if I secure something that helps me get by."
"I want to apply for grad school this year and start prioritizing my health, i.e. being more cognizant about what I’m eating, how often I’m drinking, and getting into an exercise routine I can stick with."
"Before the start of a new year, I always write a list of things I want to do – read 25 books, say 'yes' more, that sort of thing. For this year, my big goal is to travel to three new countries. Not sure where those three countries will be, but I've got Cuba, Japan, and Bosnia!"
