Twenty in 2020
When I turned 50 a few years ago, I set out to complete 50 new things before the year was up. It was a lot of fun but also a lot of work! This year, I'm pulling it back a bit and am planning on learning 20 new topics and/or having 20 new experiences in 2020. Unlike my last "50 Things" plan where trying an activity just once was enough to count towards my goal, my new plan, "Twenty in 2020," will involve me going deeper and getting fairly good in the areas I want to tackle. I've been a fan of the ideas in Cal Newport's "Deep Work" and "So Good They Can't Ignore You" and I've recently finished Scott Young's "Ultralearning" and all three of these books encourage the idea of doing a deep dive with new areas of interest and not simply running through the basics.
Will you join me in 2020? What 20 new things do you want to learn or become much better at in the New Year? What new areas do you want to understand or get really good at? I'd love to hear your ideas!
Happy New Year to All!

It’s that time of year again when OSHA unveils their top citations. Although the safety and health world is moving away from focusing so much on compliance, “the top ten” can still be used to highlight areas and programs in the workplace that may need extra attention. The “top ten” for 2023 has not changed much from previous years. The same ten standards are still in this year’s top ten but the order has changed slightly. The infographic below shows OSHA’s most recent “Top Ten.”
