My main goals for summer are only for 4 events.

Clock - Sub 5 (Current Avg 5.7)
4x4 - Sub 45 (Currently Avg 53-50)
5x5 - Sub 1:25 (Currently Avg 1:35 -1:40)
Megaminx - Sub 1 (Current Avg 1:15)
I plan to practice a lot during summer and it seems that comps might be coming back in my area soon :)
Update to my goals:
Clock average is now 5.4 -5.5
4x4 I achieved sub 50 but still not quite sub 45
Megaminx average is currently 1:05 -1:10

Didn’t end up achieving most of my goals but I’m still pretty happy with my progress

Join the sub10 2H and sub14 OH ZZers before the end of 2019

lets go boi
hmm its a bit past the end of 2019 but hey at least it's done

3x3
9.58 ao100
9.999 ao1000

oh
13.94 ao100
(yeah it's not global but it's close enough I just wanted to complete the above post)


So now that feet's gone, I can focus solely on OH and Mega:
OH sub 12
Mega sub 45
3x3 sub 9 maybe? idrc
I've still got a lot of work to do whatever these goals are. Megaminx on hold for the moment; I'll check back in at the end of the year ig
Although it is looking like I could realistically be sub12 oh and only be mid/low 9 with 2h which I think would be really funny

I actually just enjoy puzzling right now. anyway these would be cool to achieve:

Sub 30s on 3x3 with both CFOP and Roix

Sub 1:30 on 4x4

Sub 5 on 2x2

Getting a 5x5, Megaminx, Skewb and potentially a lot more puzzles.

Well, we can all have goals, right? Some good long term goals, some short term goals. Well, what is a reward for achieving that goal, to keep you motivated in every single solve that you do? What will push you? How will it push you?
Okay, Imma stop. Just some thoughts to have.
