2020 & 2021 Goals

It’s January 1st 2021 and I am excited about this year. I have many goals. Normally I keep this stuff to myself but I would like to be more transparent on my goals. I like pushing myself and I am determined to always become better. This is another way of pushing myself and a way to force myself to focus. I will post my goals for 2021. First, let’s see how I did last year. Here is a list of last year’s good and bad things I completed. I am also adding a list of what I did not complete.
