2024 Comedy Goals

For the past fifteen years, I set goals publicly at the start of the year and then review how I did at the end of the year [see 2023, 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019201820172016201520142013201220112010 and 2009].

I’m not sure if this is actually useful, as I only look at this post the first and last day of the year, but I like traditions, and am oftentimes pleasantly surprised by how much I accomplish from this list. And maybe it helps subconsciously, so here go my goals for this year. The ones in italics are not fully in my control.

This year I’m at 12 goals: 7 of which I have direct control, and 6 of which I don’t. I like keeping a top 3 goals list too.
