Warning! I am not the first to do this. Previous threads: 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016

The new year is fast approaching, and we'll be leaving 2020 in the past(thank goodness). So, what plans, goals, resolutions, etc. do you have for this upcoming year? Do you want to be sub-10 on 3x3? Learn full EG? How about learn how to do 4BLD? List all of your cubing goals for this upcoming year of 2021!

Beyond the grave.....
My goals in order of importance, 1 being most important
1.Don't quit
2.Get sub 12 on 3x3, maybe even sub 10
3.get sub 20 sq1.
4.Get a decent 4x4( On the way) and get to sub 50 at least
5. get sub 25 OH and learn to plan full EOline
6.Get acceptably decent at pyra(sub 5 or 6)
7.get sub 2 5x5
8. get sub 3 2x2



that is all I can think of now
EDIT: Also get more consistent 3bld(60% when safetying)
and sub 35 moves FMC(mo3)
EDIT2:and go to a comp(if they are having those, hoping it is safe in less than a year)
and learn 4bld
EDIT3:Learn to not suck at mega

I wrote a bunch of goals for each event on a piece of paper on January 1st for me to look at and see how many I beat on January 1st, 2021. I think I beat all of them by a lot but idk. The only real goals I have for next year are sub 15 3x3 and hopefully some kind of podium for pyraminx but I doubt that.

4x4: sub 1:00
5x5: sub 3:00
Square-1: Still don't learn how to solve it
6x6/7x7: Purchase non-Vcube versions and actually solve them occasionally
pyraminx: sub 10
3x3 blind: Re-learn M2 and my letter pairs, sub 2:00. Maybe start switching to 3-Cycle

First, what does globally sub-x mean?

My interpretation is that it means consistently sub-x, so on that assumption, here are my goals for 2021.

At home
2x2: globally sub-6
3x3: globally sub-10
4x4: globally sub-55
5-7: get started
OH: sub 25 global ?
Pyra: meh
Mega: (I want to say meh, but then Micah and Owen will kill me so I'm not going to say meh) globally sub-2 and get a good cube
Squan: globally sub-40
Clock: start
BLD events: maybe learn 3BLD? OP

At comp
2x2: sub 7 avg, sub 3 single
3x3: sub 10 avg, sub 8 single
4x4: sub 55 avg, sub 50 single
5-7: get an avg in all
OH: sub 20 single
Pyra: meh
Mega: sub 2 avg
Squan: sub 40
Clock: idk how hard it is, maybe sub 10 avg?
BLD: get a success
Other: 200 subs
Go to 3/4 comps
