    6) visit 20 places of interest
    7) see 20 performances (so this can include cinema / theatre / concerts)
    10) pick up and recycle 20 plastic bottles a week
    I'm working on my list, and I noticed this for the picking up and recycling, but setting goals for visits and performances (even though I do go to some already) is a great idea.

    Went in craft room on the way to bed last night and thought of quite a few more, so now I will have to refine down! I think I can combine some.

    I too am at the refining / combining / rewording. 11 days to go :D

  • Well I have to say when I was asking for help to create my 2020 Mission (that’s what I’m calling it, a Mission so I feel like an Avenger) I didn’t expect people would want to join in. I’m really quite chuffed as well as flattered!

    Still fine tuning (mainly as been with pre Christmas bug) the list. Think I’ll add make 20 vegetarian food choices which will be easy as I rarely eat meat on a day I work from home - veggie pitta pizza being one of my favourites.

    My craft abilities are limited.....I can sew a button on and knit squares. Anything more challenging than that would be a waste of resources.

    I wonder if me n him could manage 20 tech free evenings, where we play board games n actually talk to each other without a phone attached...that’s one to ponder on.
    I do not make mistakes, I learn lessons.
    I work to live, not live to work.
    I love to live & live to love.
    Good enough is exactly that.
