Just started playing again. Wondering if anyone has set time-oriented goals for themselves?

What I'm asking is has anyone set any goals pertaining to progressing as a player, and what specifically were they?
For example:
* Play X scale at Y bpm by Z date
* Play X song by Y date

Just had my first band practice as a bassist, what a blast!

Pointless shitpost but I'm just excited right now. I've played guitar for years and played in bands a little, but I just joined my brother's long time band as bassist and it is such a different feeling. I love the weight this instrument carries, like a person that doesn't talk too much but when they do, its important. So happy I started playing bass a year ago and now get to feel more like an actual bassist.

Need help getting out of a slump

For the better part of the past 8 years, I've been playing in a lot of touring punk/hardcore/thrash bands that have done relatively well. My last band ended up splitting up about a year and a half ago, and I took it pretty hard- to the point where I all but stopped playing until this past month or two. I used to be pretty solid technique wise, and had a decent grasp of theory. Now I feel like I'm running into a wall trying to play like I used to/remember all of the theory I feel like I've totally forgotten. It's extremely frustrating. Has anyone else come back to playing from a long break? How were you able to get back into it?
