Yes, I am writing these on a suicide site. Isn’t that sad? Anyway, year goes.
Topic: Physical activity
Motivation: Because it makes me more balanced, and physical strength is good to have.
Current Status: I’ve gotten to the point where I only work out once every other day.
Goal: Per week, gym 3 days, run 2 days, and martial arts 2 days. Rain or shine.

Goal: Limit eating full meals to weekends. One meal a day on weekends. Snacking on real food is ok (nuts, dried fruit, non-dried fruit, vegetables, and partial meals like a couple bites of a sandwich or something). Never be full. Also, no extravagant cakes or donuts. No chocolate beyond plain Hersheys (and only one bite per day).
Motivation: I need to advance my knowledge in some fields.
Current Status: Hah, what are words again?
Goal: One book a month. Book topics are limited to: 1, Greco-Roman philosophy, 2, Buddhist Philosophy (but no pop-buddhism), 3 Mathematics, 4 Computer Science.

Current Status: I’ve stopped looking for a new job and have become a complacent piece of shit.
Goal: Update resume, study, connect with other managers, do at least one mock interview a week. Get a new job by end of year.
Motivation: Lack of organization yields lack of discipline, which makes you weak.
Current Status: When I don’t make a plan my day is crap, and when I make a plan someone always ruins it.
Goal: Make weekly plans. Keep the time slots flexible, but be strict on the tasks you need to accomplish. Never waste a time slot. Per day, make daily plans and update the weekly plan to make sure you meet all your goals.

Goal: Take care of everyone, try to be compassionate even when firm and combative, try to be reasonable at all times, never lose your composure, don’t laugh loudly.
And that’s it. 2019, let’s do this.
Disclosure: If I die or am hospitalized, or something really bad that I can’t control happens to me, I can temporarily put off some of these goals.
