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.

Third goal today, I just keep thinking of them. One about 3x3x3 algorithms, one about BLD, now this is just about normal speed:

Goal
Get sub-20 averages
Deadline
December 2, 2009 at 12:00 noon (one year after I started cubing)

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.

Goal: A really consistent sub-10 mins on 7^3.
Deadline: ASAP. I really hate when the timer stops while I'm in the very last commutators :mad:
