    I know there have been threads like this before (Goals for the next few months, Goals for over the summer, Goals not yet achieved, I check the search function), but none of them have been one where you can just post goals and when you want to achieve them. I think that would be a good idea, and you can see what other people are aiming and when they want to learn it by so you can choose what to learn next. I'll start.

    Goal
    Learn all OLLs
    Deadline
    April 17th at 6:35 and 12 seconds PM (that date has no significance at all, in case you were wondering, I just randomly made up some time in mid April)

    EDIT - One more thing, this should be for cubing-related goals.
    EDIT 2 - Once your deadline hits, you can post here and say if you achieved your goal or not, or if you do achieve your goal, you can post here and say so. If you don't achieve your goal, reset your goal with a new deadline.

    Goal
    Do 3x3x3 BLD with M2/R2 consistently
    Deadline
    April 30th at 11:59 PM and 59 seconds (That way I can spend May improving)

    I quit this goal. I decided I'm not doing M2/R2 anymore. Look ahead a little for my new goal.

    I was going to learn M2/R2, but I changed my mind:

    Goal
    Learn Turbo edges and (maybe) Turbo corners for BLD
    Deadline
    February 8th, any time.

    I never said I would actually SOLVE it blindfolded with Turbo by then. I just said I'll UNDERSTAND it by then.
