Barton. Southampton. Bath. Guildford.
As this is a short month I am going with something that might be at the easier end of the spectrum.
I am a big fan of twisty puzzles and can solve many of them reasonably well. But one puzzle that I have never learned to solve completely is the Megaminx. It's time to figure out how to do that last layer.
How better to start off 2021 than with a good tidy up! I have a couple of decades worth of digital files, and at least 40 years of paper documents that I have loosely "filed" in several different locations. And I can never find anything.
But how can I fix this? I recently came across the Johnny.Decimal system. So I am going to learn all about it and try to apply it to my desperately unorganised personal records.
This is a great system for me. I love it.
As the year of the covid-19 pandemic was coming to an end, I found myself reading an article on fluid intelligence. It basically says "keep challenging yourself to learn new things". Which is kind of what I have always done, until this year, when I abandoned all my mini-projects.
So how about learning, or relearning, one new thing each month? To start off I went back to a game I used to play a long time ago - chess. It's very popular at the moment (thanks to The Queen's Gambit) and I'm not expecting to master the game... I am just going to try solving chess puzzles on lichess every day.
Let's see if I can keep the challenges going in 2021.
