It’s that time of year again. The dreaded ‘R’ word, written in bold Comic Sans, hovering over your head as you promise yourself that this is it – this is definitely the last custard cream you’ll eat for the rest of the year, despite it being the end of January and your third biscuit of the morning.
Don’t be too hard on yourself. According to statistics, less than 25% of us actually stick to resolutions after January. Nobody can face that level of commitment. Here at Identify, we prefer to set ourselves goals instead. Means we can reward ourselves with a pint once we’ve printed off that homemade certificate. It also sounds way less daunting than the word ‘resolution’.
We’re currently in discussion to finalise our goals as a team for 2020. In the meantime, here’s a few of our personal ones that we hope will last at least until the end of February. Might be best not to check in on us, though…
Matt, Account Manager – ‘My goal is to stick to my training plan, meaning no more skipping leg day’
Jordan, Account Manager – ‘I’m going to focus on enhancing my social life… by going to bed earlier every night’
Emma, SEO/PPC Manager – ‘I’m hoping to reach a savings target in preparation for a big party involving a white dress and a three-tier cake (shh, don’t say the ‘W’ word – we’re trying to keep costs down over here!)’
Sam, Senior Designer – ‘After lifting 110kg in 2019, my goal for 2020 is to power clean at least 150kg’
Robbie, Lead Developer – ‘I plan to gain two titles this year: One: Fifa Master. Two: Identify Fantasy Football Champion’
Connor, Front End Developer – ‘After years of hard saving, 2020 will hopefully be the year I become a homeowner’
What are your goals for 2020?
