Review of 2023

The first week of 2024 is an excellent opportunity to reflect on the previous year and set goals for the upcoming one. The 2023 was pretty challenging for me in multiple areas of my life, like mental state and content creation. I'd like to share a concise recap of last year and share plans for 2024 in this article. 

I want to start with activities which helped me to improve my mental state:

  1. Morning reading
  2. Mental walks (no music & podcasts)
  3. Journalling
  4. No phone first 2 hours of the day


In 2023, I published 8 articles:

Plans for 2024

Here are my main goals:

  • Publish a book
  • Release 15+ articles
  • Publish 10 videos
