Making a 20 for 2020 List

My own 20 for 2020 goals

This is the third year that I’ve ditched New Year resolutions in favour of a year-long list of fun goals. In 2018 it was ’18 for 2018′, last year was ’19 for 2019′ and this year — you’ve guessed it — ’20 for 2020′.

I first heard of the idea on the mighty Happier podcast, and if you’re interested in finding out more I’d recommend Episodes 255, 203 and 149.

This is the first year I’m publishing my goals. Mainly for accountability, but also because I want to share with you how I’ve fared by the end of the year. In previous years I’ve never achieved everything on the list. And I’m absolutely ok with that. The point of the list for me is not a stick to beat myself with. It’s a way of reminding myself of the fun and exciting ideas I’d like to try, should the mood take me during the year to get on them.

Without further ado – here’s my 20 for 2020:

  1. Friday date nights with my hubby.
    Mostly at home as we rarely have babysitters, but a nice steak and movie is better than nothing!
  2. Launch my online shop – coming soon!
  3. Complete Season 2 of the podcast
  4. Get moles checked
  5. Take part in 30 days of yoga.
    I’m not holding myself to doing it every day, but just trying my best.
  6. Attend a Nurture & Thrive meetup
  7. Make a will.
    This has been on the list for the last two years. I must do it this time!
  8. Read at least 12 books
  9. Play squash at least once a month
  10. Crochet a blanket for our bed
  11. Learn to play one full piano piece
  12. Visit one new National Trust property
  13. Spend 15 minutes a week creating a ‘Facts of Life’ book.
    This isn’t quite what it sounds! It contains all the essential information needed by your family in case something happens to you. Not fun to think about, but potentially saving your family a lot of additional paperwork at a distressing time.
  14. Print two photo year books
  15. Organise a capsule wardrobe for Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter
  16. Create a base makeup look that can be completed in 5 minutes
  17. Buy a bracelet with my word of the year – Trust
  18. Create a House book for home projects and tasks
  19. Use only refillable or solid soap for the whole year
  20. Buy a pretty ceramic soap dish

And there you have it. I’ll check in a couple of times during the year to let you know how I’m getting on. If you’re setting your own 20 for 2020, good luck and let me know over on Instagram how you get on!
