2021 Goals

Just like my 2020 review, I’m publishing these goals waaay later than when I actually created them for myself and put them into effect.

They are directionally the same as the ones I had last year so I’ll be skipping most of the explanations around why I’ve chosen these goals.

I’ve added a couple of Key Results, especially around habit formation. In the past, I’ve often failed to meet the KRs, but have still accomplished the objectives. That’s probably a sign of a bad key result, but hey, they were good enough™️
