I’ve been writing a My Three Words post every year since 2013.

Here are my three words for 2024:


In 2023, I put a lot of time and energy into getting into better health physically, mentally, and emotionally. After losing weight, adding muscle and hitting my goal, I realized how much had been missing from my life during the period where I’d neglected my health.

Despite being older, I actually feel better than I have over the last 3-5 years. Professionally, I am also feeling better and more confident than I ever have.

After surviving a pandemic, shifting my career, and emerging from all of it with two beautiful children, I’m feeling like this year has to be the official start of hitting my prime.

I want this year to be the one where I experience the best health of my life, the most success in my career, and the overall best version of me.


My default speed is fast.

I move fast, I think fast, I read fast, and it’s possible that all of this speed is not good for me. At least, not all of the time.

I don’t want to rush through every day trying to accomplish more and get to tomorrow to repeat the process. I want to enjoy the baby snuggles at night. I want my toddler to feel my full attention and presence as she rambles through a story that makes perfect sense to her and absolutely no sense to me. I want to let go of (some of) my panic of not doing enough, growing enough, or accomplishing enough.

As I get older, the days fly by, the weeks disappear, and the new year is here before I can believe it. This is what happens when I move fast and get too wrapped up.

But really, there’s no rush. It’s ok to go slow.

Without a deliberate effort to slow down and be more mindful, I experience the passage of time ever more quickly. This year, I want to focus on being slow. I want to read fewer books, set fewer goals, do fewer things, and slow down to enjoy the ride a little more.


I have a multitude of content projects from blogs and newsletters, to podcasts and videos, spanning different topics and concepts. I have deep knowledge and expertise about a variety of different subjects. I can help a lot of people, in a variety of different ways, both passively and actively.

People close to me know this, but everyone else might never know it.

This is because I’ve neglected to spend any time weaving together all of the different strands to tell a clear story. In my head, it all fits together perfectly. Outside of my head, it can appear fragmented, disjointed, or random.

I’m going to spend this year weaving all of it together. By the end of this year, it should be clear:
