A few things I’d like to get out of 2024

Every year I try and write a short overview of my hopes and aims for the year ahead, to accompany my review of the year. I’ll be honest, the older I get the more difficult I find these to write. Partly it’s because I’m actually pretty satisfied with my life overall, which I’m well aware is a great position to be in.
