2019 Goals - Q1 Update

1 minute read

Back in January I wrote about my goals for 2019 (you can read this post here: https://scottpringle.co.uk/posts/my-2019-goals/, since we’re now in April it felt like as good a time as any to provide an update on how I’m getting on.

1. Buy A House

This one I’ve actually completed already! On March 29th I finally purchased my first home.

2. Learn To Drive

I’m still in the process of doing driving lessons, being perfectly honest this has been more stressful than I thought it would be. Driving was one of those things I always felt I had a reasonable theoeritical grasp of how to do, what I’ve learned is that grasp has absolutely no impact on my actual ability to drive!

This still looks likely for 2019 though and now that the house is done has become my primary focus.

3. Read 12 Books

This goal is not going well, so far I’ve only managed to complete 1 book this year. I think this one has wained a bit due to not managing to find a book series that has gripped me.

I’ve tried a few different books so far this year, but nothing has stuck and I’ve ended up only reading a few pages at a time, and then eventually giving up.

I’d love to hear some suggestions from people, to see what I’ve read before check out my Goodreads Profile

4 Complete 2 Video Games

I’m getting there with this, I’ve continued to play through Assassins Creed: Odyssey (that game is huge!), done about 40% of Super Mario Deluxe U on the Switch and also just started playing Kingdom Hearts 3. I think this goal should be well in hand by the end of the year (I’m always open to Video Game suggestions too!)

I’ve found writing this to be fairly therapeutic and made me realise I’m doing better with my goals than I initially felt, I’ll likely do another update at the end of June and see how far I’ve come, and whether it’s time to add anything new to my goals for the second half of 2019.
