In this post I wrote about a goal I had made to read one book per week. Let me be clear. I haven’t met that goal. I’m probably doing one book every two weeks, and in some cases, one every three weeks.
This is not ok with me, and it’s not because I have to meet some artificial goal for the sake of meeting it. It’s because I have a lot of books to read for my grad program and they’re piling up.
Since starting this program back in May, I decided to tweak my weekly schedule so that Thursdays would be devoted to reading and catching up on class stuff. But I’ve found that this hasn’t been working out so well. So I’ve been thinking about how I can tweak my schedule a little more to help me accomplish my goals. Here’s what I’m going to try: making reading a standing appointment in my daily schedule. Revolutionary, huh?
