in reply to What numbers are you going to focus on primarily in 2020?

Other than the number of students in my classes that actually do their work, I continue to pay the "I don't know probability tax" and buy lotto tickets, so the winning numbers get my attention.

I actually do know probability, but buying lotto tickets has a better chance of a positive payoff than drinking, smoking, or chasing members of the appropriate sex to whom I am not married
