2024 Bingo - A Choose-Your-Own-Goals Challenge

2024 BINGO Will run through all of 2024

The theme of BINGO is to fill out a bingo card filled with goals you write yourself.

When a row, column, or diagonal is completed, “shout” (type expressively) BINGO.

Making Your Card

Keep in mind a standard bingo card:

Which typically has 25 spaces, with one of those being a free space.

Create a BINGO card with up to 24 goals. 24 in 2024! Perfect!

This card can be digital or physical.

TOOLS

There are tools online where you can fill in a bingo card and have it randomize for you. I’ve been looking at this one, which allows you to randomize just column-by-column if you want. So you can have a column be a category of goals.

RULES

rules

  • One card per person.
  • Goals on the board must be completed after January 1st 2024 and before January 1st 2025.
  • You can join/complete your cards at any time.
  • If something happens outside your control that makes it impossible/bad to complete a goal, change it. No restrictions, no hard feelings. Just don’t run a marathon with a broken foot because of this challenge, okay?
  • Please do not critique the goals of others and offer advice only if solicited.

Goal-Making Guidelines

  • Goals don’t all have to be huge. Be kind to yourself. Have fun. Put “pick my nose” and “pet the cat” in there with “get a new job” and “buy a house” if you want.
  • Consider that some goals like “don’t do x all year” or “do x every week for the whole year” can’t be officially finished until the end of the year. These aren’t prohibited, just keep in mind it could make getting BINGO before Dec. 31st harder.

Here’s mine. Plz forgive scratchy writing.

Decided I am going to use the bingo to do a more fun monthly to-do list. Which am hoping will help me focus on my goals all year (Am not fabola at year-long things).

All right, setting up for 2024. Suspect the biggest issue (aside from remembering to update this in general) will be tracking the repeating tasks, but we’ll see how it goes.

Two items besides FREE are done since they’re kind of my starting tasks for the year :smiley:

OK this is my first pass. The colors are sort of categories… green=I have to do something multiple times, blue=I have to reach out to someone else, etc. We’ll see how we do.
