2019 has been a weird year. Here’s a few key callouts:
Looking at the above there’s a good mix of positives and negatives, as well as all those in between. With having a mixture, it’s easy to get some perspective of my whole year. It has got me thinking about 2020…. and the rest of the next decade. Thinking about the last 10 years, so much has happened, so much has changed. Until now I have had no real plan for my life. I have had no real direction to move in. Sure I have had things I wanted to achieve, but nothing more.
In these closing days of 2019, I’m feeling more of a desire to keep a note of my life, to see what makes me happy, sad, angry, energised, motivated, etc … I’m finding new things which speak to me which I want to keep note of. I want to form some new habits to make the next decade my best one on this planet so far.
I have had a little think about terminology for all the different divisions of time, but 10 years is a long time, and my ideas will probably change throughout the years! The only thing I have decided is I will define each week as a sprint. Each quarter will have around 12 sprints. At the end of the decade, I’ll have around 520 weeks of my life documented. Each month/quarter/year I will have more and more data captured to make decisions about adjustments to my life in order to be my best self.
For the first year, I will not be setting a new year resolution. Instead I am going to be focusing on building healthy habits and laying the groundwork for the new decade.
