how do you approach goal setting for the coming year when 2021 is rife with uncertainty?

—@mikedferrante AH, GOAL SETTING. Remember that? It’s been a while since most of us tried to set a long-term goal or make a firm plan for ourselves, what with the whole world spinning out of control. At one point in the fall, I made the mistake of trying to go on a last-minute three-day silent-meditation retreat (that was my idea of a good time, which tells you what my fall was like), but I had to bail at the very last minute because of a COVID scare at my kids’ school.
