If every day for 12 days you had a new photo thing you felt would help then what would it be?

If you can set the list to the theme of the 12 days of Christmas - even better...

Your ambition should always be higher than your ability. That's what makes you improve.

I do not need any more equipment just more ability to see like an artist.

Regarding equipment, nothing really, except perhaps for better high ISO performance for concerts and the like which I enjoy shooting.
The really important thing would be a big dose of what Alan calls visual awareness and Dave calls ability to see like an artist.

I took about 2,000 frames in 2018 though have deleted 40% of them. This would be a typical number for me and gives me the just under 100 final images I need for competitions.

Can't think of 12, but - Voice-activated settings. Can you imagine how fab it would be not to have to fiddle with buttons and menus? And if it ever comes to be, remember you saw it here first.
