2023 will be a bit out of my depth

With focus on the word "change" for 2023, Howard Poon RGD shares five fun projects to begin the year with.  


Did January creep up on you? It did for me. I spent 2022 relearning how to behave in social gatherings and adjusting to hybrid work. It was a year of micro-changes. So this year my focus word is “change”. I aspire to be more open and curious in my life and work. I will conduct more experiments. I will change my mind. And change my playlist. 
What have you chosen to focus on in 2023?
David Bowie said to, “Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.” He never stood still. He embraced change. 
In the spirit of Bowie, here are a few just for fun projects to ease you into the new year.
