Evaluating goals - 2017 edition

Another half a year has passed, so it's time to review my goals from January.

Around March something came up, so I dropped some goals or reduced their intensity. That something is called setting a wedding date for July, so I'll excuse myself for being busy with that.

Scoring will continue by the same metric: 1 for goals fully achieved, 0 for complete failures.

Get to 82 kg by June
I am currently 83 kg. I was 90 kg in January when I posted this, so this is a 0.875 score. Not bad. We'll see how my suit fits on Saturday :D
Exercise three times a week
I exercised 63 times in the first half of the year. Then I pulled a muscle and it had me unable to move. It's still a score of 0.777.
Read 24 books in 2017/read 30 minutes every day
So... I read 10 books in half a year, when I should be at 12 already. Almost there, so it's 0.833. But the 30 minutes reading per day... that's a big no.
Write 3 blog posts per month
I wrote 13 posts so far (without this one), while I should be at 18. Score: 0.722
Write into my journal twice a week
I managed to keep this habit almost perfectly until last week. Score: 0.95
Spend 1 hour per week studying German on my own
This goal got dropped first: I stopped doing it around April. I clocked in 8.3 hours of German until then. Score: 0.307
Do 4 20 minute Pomodoros every day
I did around 550 Pomodoros this year, which comes down to 3.79 per working day. Score: 0.94. I actually felt more productive.
Read 3 chapters from the Bible every day
I did this pretty good until last week. Score: 0.95
Memorize 1 Bible verse every week:
Well... third time's the charm. It'll work next time, I'm sure! Score: 0

Average score: 0.706. So I managed to improve just a tiny bit on my score from last year \:D/ But it's in­ter­est­ing that now I don't have any perfect score, but I have fewer failures too. Maybe I'm learning how to set proper goals for myself?

But, like last year, I'll take a break now and I'll focus on making my soon-to-be wife happy!
