Hey, Matt here!
Welcome to 2024. I've deliberately stayed out of your inbox to ensure a full disconnect. The list will start again next week, but I want to check-in and wish everyone a Happy New Year!
I wrote last year about my intentions for 2023; Simplify, Gratitude and Energy. As I reflect on 2023, I'm feeling good about where I ended up.
This year, my intentions are Consistency. Growth and Health.
Theme #1 - Consistency
In 2024, I want to show up consistently across a wider range of activities, I have a long list of ideas, and the only way I'll achieve them is by being relentlessly focused on action.
Theme #2 - Growth
For the things I want to do in 2024, I want to get BETTER at them. Growth comes from improvement x consistency. By practicing, I'll grow my skills.
I want to be become a better writer, and I have set myself the challenge of writing & sharing one new thing every day. My newsletter will remain the only thing I send out to a list, but I'll share daily notes on the blog.
Theme #3 - Health
This one is more personal, but i don't mind holding myself accountable here. I'll be working on my health in 2024. I'm in 'sniper alley', and I'm not going to outrun anyone.
I started this intention in November, and I'm making progress. I'll share some of the details as I go.
Once again, I'm not making resolutions. I'm setting my intentions for the year and creating habits and systems that will support them. I'll update here.
See you all next week for the first Stuff of the Year!
