As per my about page I am pursuing few goals from March 2019 to March 2020. Here is update for the second month.
Ran 5kms without any breaks for the first time. In under 30 minutes!
Able speak a new language, Italian.
Continue to make progress on this, streak continues.
Travel to Israel, Cambodia, and Vietnam
Israel in August. Have got visa requirements done, will apply in July as it is only valid for 3 months from the day of approval.
Acquire a new creative hobby.
Writing. Have started maintaining a private diary and will publish few things from time to time. Still need a hobby which is slightly less abstract.
Really good progress on this. I can run 5km/day. Have been pushing to about 8km/day with 1.5km walking breaks.
Travel to 10 states in India that I have not been to before.
Plans are in progress, as soon as monsoon starts. Gujrat, Rajasthan, Punjab, Himachal, Haryana, Uttarakhand.
Make friends with people from countries I have never been to before.
Have had minor success over coursera forums, but nothing more beyond that.
Acquire new (technical) skills, learn new things.
Continue to make progress in this. I will release couple of side projects later in the year utilising these skills. I completed two courses - How to negotiate and How to understand arguments. I also did complete a course on Modern History.
Sabbatical from work is not going all that well. Acquired two new clients, one project for an old client, and have three more in the pipeline.
