STATUS ON 2019 GOALS

Summary:
Looks like I did great on boosting my morale and doing small projects, grades A+ and B
I did ok not great on organizing and socializing, grade C
I made progress on one large project; the other two were not really even started, grade D
Room for improvement in 2020: 
Write goals I want to do and not just say I have done.
Perhaps define better those large projects or break into sub goals


Morale boosters 6 out of 6 – A+
