Thread starter #1
This idea was not created by me. 2017 Goals Thread, 2016 Goals Thread.

It's early December, and no one has made this thread yet, and I don't want to forget to do this, so here it is.

3x3: Sub 9
2x2: Practice a bit, maybe get a PB average officially, I'm currently pretty bad
4x4: Sub 45 average, again, really hard, but I might do it.
5x5: Sub 1:40 average.
6x6: Do it maybe. Have one not break.
7x7: Do it, get a good one. Sub 7 single.
Squan: Sub 12

Alrighty :D
2x2: Eh maybe practice a bit, learn HD if I get into it
3x3: Get! Better! with! Roux! (assuming I switch fully from CFOP). Maybe sub-17?
4x4: Practice a bit. Maybe get closer to sub-1
5x5-7x7: Maybe do a few solves.
OH: Meh. Do a few solves maybe.
3BLD: Practice.
3x3x5 Fisher: If I'm still interested in this, maybe get to a sub-3:30 global average?

Looking back at my goals from last year I've come remarkably close. I'll wait until the end of the year to post on that thread how I've done on those.

So by the end of 2018:
2x2: Currently ~10 seconds. Goal: 10 seconds
3x3: Currently ~30 seconds. Goal: learn full OLL, sub-25
4x4: Currently ~1:30. Goal: Sub-1:10, sub-1:00 single
5x5: Currently ~2:45-3:00. Goal: Sub-2:20, sub-2:00 single.
6x6: Currently ~5:10. Goal: Sub-4:00, sub-3:00 single, get to 2,000 timed solves.
7x7: Currently ~8:20. Goal: Sub 6:30, sub-5:00 single, get to 1,000 solves.
Megaminx: Currently ~3:20. Goal: Sub-3:00
OH: I don't care. I'll probably get to sub-45 if I get everything else
3BLD: practice. Since successes are still scarcer than hen's teeth I don't know what a good time is.
Big blind and MBLD: I need to figure out 3BLD first, but I really want to do big blind. Moon shot goal would be at least one success for each of 4-7.
Feet: Currently ~2:00. Goal: Sub-1:30 with sub-1:00 single.
Square-1: don't forget how to solve it.
Skewb and pyraminx don't relearn.
Clock: don't learn.
FMC: maybe practice.
Gigaminx: sub-20:00

Edit: more optimistic goals.

Let's give it a try

All of my goals

2x2: if I buy one, my goal is to one-look, otherwise build one myself
3x3: I don't care about time, but I want to have at least 100 ZBLLs memorized, sub 20 would be nice
4x4: aquire 4x4,become sub one
5x5: aquire 5x5,become sub two
6x6:don't aquire 6x6, develop the method everyone will be using
Megaminx: touch it again
3BLD: somewhere between sub 2 and 1:30
4BLD: pretty consistent success rate
5BLD: somewhat consistent success rate
Square-1: Get ATR in Single and Average

Competitions: Have luck and find one that's not 4 hours away

High goals, but I want to be busy so I can always practice something

Megaminx: global sub 58, official sub 54 / sub 57 average, or Top 200/150 s/a
OH: global sub 16, official sub 13 / sub 15 average, or Top 500/300 s/a
Feet: global sub 38, official sub 32 single / sub 35 average
3x3: global sub 11, official sub 9.5 single / sub 10.5 average

3BLD: global sub 2:30, official sub 2:00 single / sub 3 mean
MBLD: global 10 points, officially more than 8 points
5x5: global sub 1:35, official sub 1:25 single / sub 1:30 average
FMC: global sub 35, official sub 30 single / sub 34 average

Get MBLD, OH and, maybe Megaminx SR
Get 0 nemeses. I currently have 9

Either never ever compete in clock, or get sub10 and then like podium
Skewb and pyraminx don't relearn.
100% of ZBLL with alternates for OH and Feet

Get a source of income so I can buy cubes and go to comps
Organize a competition that goes really well
Do really well in the events that I compete in but don't care about
Attend at least 5 comps in 2018
Podium in something. Win/Podium in Feet/OH/Mega at least 5 times:
Win Megaminx once, Podium every other time
Win Feet every time
Podium in OH, 2nd place once

Achieve 75% of these or come within 90% of completing 90% of them
