Unexpected 2020 Lessons and Resolutions for 2021 (Content Lab, Ep. 55)
Oh, what a decade this year has been, am I right?
By Liz Murphy
Welcome to 2021, ladies and gentlemen. Although John and I are both forward-thinking individuals, he and I realized something. Yes, it's supremely tempting to blow off the pandemic-themed, quarantined dumpster fire that was 2020 without a single backward glass.
However, we would be remiss if we did not take a moment to reflect before we moved ahead into the new year.
It is with that in mind that I present to you all this very special episode, in which we reflect on the largest lessons we learned in 2020 and our resolutions for the new year.
I'll admit, this wasn't the "check the box" resolutions episode I expected. As I noted at the top of this episode, when I finally sat down to prepare for our recording, I was surprised at what I realized were my biggest lessons and my chosen resolutions.
Oh, and we talk about this:
...and I had an eensy weensy tangental meltdown over The Godfather, Part III. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Important show note
As I mentioned a the previous episode, in the coming weeks, we'll be releasing a bunch of episodes John and I recorded over the past few months. For various reasons, we always felt very quickly that they would become obsolete — for example, we would cancel events we were promoting in those episodes, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
After serious consideration, we've opted to release those episodes anyway. So, please understand that there may be some cases where we reference events that ended up not occurring during certain episodes that we opt to publish down the line, as they make sense.
They also may be released out of order, based on their topic. The topics we discussed are still very valuable and evergreen, however, so we hope you'll excuse any momentary confusion.
Until next week! 👋
