This is a great article!
I do annual reviews each year, but I mostly do it from memory. I think the idea of bringing your past journals/diaries and reading through them while writing your review is a brilliant idea. I'm going to try it this year. Thanks for this amazing article. :)
Congrats on crushing your goals. For me, 2020 has been life changing. I was making negligible money from writing (close to $30 USD) in December 2019. I didn't believe there was a way to monetise my writing, and hence, once of my plans was to take this amount to about $100 USD by the end of 2020.
2019 me wouldn't believe if I told her I found a way (Medium!) to make at least 10x her dream amount in less than a year. :D
