Goodbye, 2023

Hi, Friends.

Here is my last publication of the year.1

In 2023, I slowed down my projects—YouTube channel, podcast, and writing—amidst a job change, a wedding, and a house renovation.

I still managed to ship new content and recently started recovering my former pace, but it wasn’t easy to give up on well-established habits.

Here are some of the highlights.

The end of the year is a great temporal landmark to reflect on what we did over the past year and rethink our practice. Yet, it’s best to conduct similar reviews throughout the year instead of waiting for New Year’s resolutions.3

If you're thinking of starting a blog or a personal journal, I invite you to read One Word per Day. I agree with Seth Godin that "everyone should have a blog and write daily, in public." It's free and a great way to establish your tone before anyone cares about your writing.

If there’s anything you’ve learned or enjoyed from my content, I’d love for you to send me a note.

I look forward to sharing more with you in 2024.

Thanks so much for being there!

Goodbye, 2023.

Happy New Year!

  1. This is the third time I have written a year-goodbye post. You can read previous ones from 2020, 2021, and 2022

  2. I'm barely getting twenty bucks a month. But it's great to have reached this milestone and start generating some passive income with my content. 

  3. At the turn of 2019, I published Twelve Grapes—a short reflection on temporal landmarks and New Year's resolutions.
