2020 is here, and is off to a good start. We moved into a very nice new apartment in Hangzhou on 1st January. We now decorate it and make it our home for next two years.

I’ll be on my first business trip to Europe this year. Very much looking forward to go, after we didn’t go to Germany for last Christmas. My job in Ningbo is promising and the company is groing at a massive scale. Though, working in Ningbo from Monday through Fridays I do miss Jiayu and Eli a lot.

I was pretty seriously training running 190km in total during December, while also visiting boxing classes. But after my last long run I suddenly fell sick”. I definitely over-trained and my body urged me to rest. I am back in training now and look forward to my 1st marathon in April.

I haven’t achieved many of my goals in 2019, so I am keeping it simpler in 2020.

2020 Goals

  • 25 books
  • run 2 marathons, one under 4h, one under 3h
  • visit Germany once
  • go on a bare-bones camping holiday with Jade & Eli
  • sleep 7 to 8 hours per night, aim to be in bed by 9:30pm
  • use a scale to check my weight every day
  • do not use my phone within 90 minutes of waking up or going to bed
  • earn a promotion
  • write weekly progress of 2020 goals every Monday 5am for 30 minutes + 30 minutes diary
