- Try Rock climbing
- Go to sleep at 10pm, wake up at 430
- Buy work truck

My first goal of the year started with recovering from my ACL surgery. My second surgery on the same knee. January of 2019, I had surgery. I spent the next 3-4 months walking with crutches, then with a cane, and now I walk with a limp when it’s cold outside. When I’m fully warmed up I can do most of the things I did before the surgery. The doctor said I can slowly return to Jiu Jitsu. Jiu Jitsu brings me so much happiness to me. I will have to start slowly. I’m very excited about this.
I also listened to David Goggins’ book, Can’t Hurt Me, and it really motivated me. I have to search for ways to really push myself outside my comfort zone and grow. I want to keep growing mentally and physically.
My debt is about the same. I will have to make a plan and stick to it.
I traveled to Cuba, Scotland, and Spain. I traveled but I wish I saved more money. Volunteer more. I volunteered a little bit. I joined the Houston YangGang. I volunteered when I could and showed support when Andrew Yang was in Texas. I volunteered at the Edinburgh Festival. For 2020 I wish to do an activity more consistently.
Increase my Spanish level. This was my most consistent goal. I’ve had an italki tutor since March. I had a lesson every week minus holidays and when I traveled. I also went to Spain to improve my Spanish.
Did I draw and paint more? I went back to a former occupation of drawing caricatures for tourists. I miss being around artists. I miss drawing. It felt good to make art and make people laugh. I also want to increase this as well. The next Pancakes and booze I want to put in six pieces.
Improve German B1. I’m shelving this goal. I just don’t have enough motivation.
Korean Basics- I’m shelving this goal. I want to return to Korea and have a better experience.
Be stronger. This goal was very vague. I did become stronger though. I need to get specific with what I want to accomplish.
Rock climb- I’m shelving this as well. I have Jiu Jitsu now.
Adjust my sleep schedule. At times I was good at this. Then I fell off.
Buy work truck. This is a long term goal.
Watercolor more. Yeah I started.
