Goals and routines for 2021

Reading time ~3 minutes

Every year I try to create some goals for myself and they fade out as life happens. But this year is different, this year I am publishing my goals public, making myself more accountable. These goals are based on OKR approach I will review these goals every three months and provide an update on the same. Be fitter, happier and more productive.

  • Wake up before 6 am.

I think I am failing miserably in this goal. I might have followed only 10% of this goal. The key to waking up early is sleeping early, which is something I am not able to do.

Failing in this will try to keep in mind this goal.
