I’ve been thinking about posting a list of goals for 2020 but then I look back at my goals for 2019, think about how I failed at them and figure there is no point in making up new goals.

I said I would keep my yearly goal of reading 100 books for the year and didn’t even make 85. I set my Goodreads goal at 100 again. Maybe I will get back on track this year.

I said I would do more stuff out of the house and then spent more time at home instead.

I said I would go outside more. I did make an effort to read on the deck more when the weather was nice but could do better.

I said I would take more short trips to KY to see family. I went once and not until November.

I didn’t succeed much with my 2019 goals. A good bit of that can be attributed to my spiraling into a depression. That depression can in a large part be attributed to a very bad daily environment once I leave my house. I don’t see my daily life changing in 2020 so I can’t imagine I would be extremely successful in doing better in 2020.

I will try to do better in dealing with my stress and anxiety. I will try not to let my stress and anxiety follow me home. I will try to figure out how to change my daily life without negatively affecting my long term plans.

I guess my 2020 goal will be getting better mentally and emotionally. Many of my leftover goals from 2019 would help with that. Here’s hoping for a happier, healthier 2020 for Tater.

One final goal – to have happier, funnier posts here in 2020. No one wants me to post daily about being stuck in an unhappy situation.

    I decided to go back and look at this post considering what 2020 has become:

    I will read less this year. Focus is hard.

    I am not going to more places for obvious reasons.

    I have gone outside more as taking walks was the one thing I could do during lockdown.

    I have not traveled to visit family more, again for obvious reasons.

    2020 has not been the year to be happier and less stressed. If you read the blog it is even worse and I’ e reached the point of begging my wife to support me quitting my job in hopes that will help.

    My posts have not been lighter and funnier.

    I will skip a looking ahead post next year. Who knows what 2021 might bring,
