As usual, I’m making three kinds of goals for 2020: blogs, personal, and travel. It is the same pattern I’ve used for a couple of years.
Goals for 2020: Blogs
1. Post regularly. I think I can aim to post twice every week on this blog, a weekly recipe on CookStyle if I don’t have more, and twice a week on Coffee&Books.
2. Vegan or Vegetarian restaurants, every other month. I used to put pubs in the annually goals, but this time I’m going to put veggie restaurants. I’ve already been to one, so it will be very easy to complete this goal.
3. Fun activities.I would like to share at least 3 fun activities I’m doing. I might mention them in the monthly round-up, but I don’t always blog about them. So, having it as a goal might change that.
4. Style & Beauty. Once a month might be a bit too much, last year I didn’t manage to do that. So I will aim for 8, but happy to share more, if I can.
5. Taste the World and Royal Recipes. I keep making unrealistic targets when it comes to my food blog, so this year I will make a small one: 7 recipes for Taste the World and 3 for the Royal Recipes series. A total of 10 should be easy to manage.
6. Reviews. I will continue with a monthly review this year too.
Goals for 2020: Personal
1. Exercise regularly.I tried last year to set up a goal to go to the gym 52 times and it was a struggle. I didn’t have the time when the gym was open or I was away. This year I plan to change that. I’m still aiming for 52 workouts, but I will not tie them to the gym. I can run in the park, exercise at home, try a new sport, or go to the gym. The only thing is that, to count, the workout should last for at least 30 minutes, if it is not high intensity.
2. Sew. I will try to make something for myself, like a top or nightgown.
3. Make 5 from 40 before 40 list. Last year I made 7! So I should manage to 5 without being too difficult. I don’t think I will be able to do everything on the list, but I plan to do as many things as I can. There are 18 more items on that list. I don’t have problems changing some items with better options, which are similar. Here is the list.
4. Read 100 Books. In the last three years I’ve read 88, 85, and 60. Now I’m going to try and get into three digits. It shouldn’t be that hard and I want the challenge. If I’m not reading 100, it will not matter though.
Goals for 2020: Travel
1. London.I go to London each year and I don’t want to miss it this year, so it is, again, on the list.
2. 15 new flags. In the last few years I’ve shared where I’ve been, so this year I plan to add 15 new flags on the map. Last year I’ve added many more, 31 in total, but that was before I started my studies. Most likely I will visit more of the south of England, as it would be easier to arrange an weekend away in that part of the country. I also plan to have more day trips to places closer to home, like north Wales.
Each year it gets harder and harder to add new flags, as I’m spending much of my time doing new things, but in the same locations. Unless we plan long holidays, like the one from last year in Scotland; but that is unlikely to happen this year.
