I think enough has been said about how life-changing 2020 was, because of how it forced us to take a break from routine, and allowed us to step out of our comfort zones.

Change is a good catalyst for growth, and gives us new perspectives on what is really important in life.

Before diving into 2021, let just do a brief review of 2020.

Review of 2020

  • Markets were a wild ride, but provided great opportunities to ride strong trends, such as Tesla, Bitcoin, etc. This gave us one of the best years of returns.
  • Exercised 3-4 times a week, including tennis, gym, swimming, running, yoga.
  • Used to have a bad habit of sleeping late, finally managed to keep to a timing of 12-8am, giving me 8 hours of sleep a day.
  • Became a certified sports massage therapist, after 7 weeks of training (70+ hours) and a final practical exam.
  • Started meditating 15-3o mins a day.
  • Stopped eating hawker food and started eating healthier, including more fruits and vegetables with every meal.
  • Managed to bulk up from 55kg to 60kg.
  • Read up a lot and worked on relationships.
  • Since I could not travel overseas, I explored a lot of new places within Singapore:
  • Spent a decent amount of time with close friends and family, meeting everyone at least once a week.
  • Watched 110 movies and TV series – that’s way too many lol
  • Only read about 40 books

 

Plans for 2021

  • Planning to create a lot more useful articles and videos for this blog.
  • Planning to continue meditating daily, and increase to 45 minutes a day.
    • If possible, go on a meditation retreat.
    • Incorporate mindfulness as part of daily life.
  • Continue sleeping from 12-8am daily, with 8 hours of sleep.
  • Continue exercising 3-4 times a week, including tennis, gym, swimming, running, yoga.
    • Work on increasing flexibility and strengthening core muscles to reduce injuries.
  • Continue bulking, next goal is to go from 60kg to 65kg.
  • Continue to eat healthy, cut down on sugar, salt, processed foods.
  • Continue to work on relationships.
  • Learn how to drive (again). I have a license, but I have not driven for more than 10 years.
  • Learn how to cook and bake.
  • Read more books and watch less TV.
  • Travel more, if possible.
  • Try some new things that are out of your comfort zone.

 

As I reach the big 35 this year, I hope I do not have a midlife crisis, but instead get some wisdom and clarity about what is important in life.
