Give something back
Become a charity trustee or college governor by December 2020
First step: find a position and apply for it.
Be a better friend
Catch up with, on average, one friend a month
3 face-to-face catch ups completed so far, with Nic, Pauline and Nick. The coronavirus lockdown is preventing me from catching up face-to-face now, so I'm going to count video call catch-ups too. 2 of those catch ups done, with (in various combinations) Emma, Lizzie, Rob, Pauline and Annette.
Publish at least one blog post every month
9 blog posts published so far. 3 to go and way ahead of target.
Start a podcast
Finish creating a podcast and publish at least 5 episodes
I have now recorded and edited 2 episodes. At least 3 more to go before launch.
Lose 10kg through better diet and exercise
I'm bouncing along at 10kg to 11kg of weight loss now. I'm setting myself a stretch target of 15kg of weight loss, so that I can stay under target comfortably.
No alcohol for 31 days, starting 1 January 2020
I made it to the 31 January, and then needed a drink.
Save some money
Save £5,000 by 31 December 2020
Goal achieved! Finally I've shown the financial restraint of an adult, rather than a giddy teenager with a paycheck. I've set a stretch target of £7,500.
63% of goals completed (each goal given equal weighting)
Year to date
Progress against my goals was last updated on the 1 July.
