Twenty-Twenties- The start of a new decade!

What do you have planned for 2020?  Do you go beyond New Year's resolutions and plan for the next decade?  How do you do it?  Financial plans?  Retirement?  What's in store for you?

I plan to retire in 2025 my husband already retired in 2022 so it is hard having to get up everyday and leave while he is by himself at home all day without a vehicle I worry so much about him. Well 2 more years and we will be able to travel and enjoy our time together even more till then I will just keep up my daily routine and phone to check in with him / Thanks listening it helps to have someone out there who can listen and not judge.Thanks again

I plan to retire in April! I want to do all the things I haven't had time to do while working! I want to finish those books I started writing, I want to read more, cook more and healthier, travel more, and spend more time enjoying nature! I want to clean and organize my house and garage, spend more time at the gym when it's not crowded, and truly live and love my life. I want to spend more time doing the things I truly enjoy, and spend more time helping others.

Fitness (once again—maybe this time it'll stick!)

Explore Argentina with a friend

Enjoy traveling the rivers with my husband on our cabin cruiser.  It's been a tough transition from life on a sailboat.  

 

That should easily—and with satisfaction—fill up 2020

More and more contract work. Hopefully-globally! Plan is and if I work as hard as I did in 2019 it should all wash out. Resultant- saving more then spending.Next ten years out-major world politics candidate- as well. No, no  retirement in sight. Only, planning for when that distant day comes. Way way down the road. Means time travles include family and friends!                                                     My key a-though  is to keep the contracts coming in.

I'd like for people to realize that 2020 is NOT the start of a new decade. The next decade will be 2021-2030.

WHY is this so hard to understand???  2020 is NOT the start of the new decade, but the tenth year of the old one!  We didn't start by calling it Year Zero, we started with year 1 AD.  Thus, the first decade ended with the year 10, the second with the year 20, and so forth.   2000 was NOT the first year of the 21st Century, it was the LAST year of the 20th.  ANY computer professional will tell you that we didn't start with year Zero, because computer professionals DO INDEED start counting with ZERO!!
