Two weeks into the year. And I asked for a strategy. Got it.
When it comes to reading, I’d say I’m slightly above the average reader as to how much and to diversity. But that’s been pretty much up to chance, outside of the structure of assigned reading by instructors or bosses. In my adult life, my content has been determined by curiosity, reference, or gifts. Nothing wrong with any of those. But for 2018 I wanted a strategy. So my coach and I walked through that this week. Here’s the result:
- Overall goal: A well rounded, self-assigned curriculum that includes subjects I’m currently engaged with but also subjects that will widen my knowledge
- Number goal: Not necessarily concerned about it, but landed on a total of 25-30
- Targeted content: I will read 1-4 books that fall under the following ten headings:
- Christian Living
- Audio books
I really like this plan. It’s intentional. It’s accountable. It’s broadening. It’s flexible. It’s doable. It’s motivational.
If reading is a thing for you, what’s your strategy? Does it need reviewing or tweaking? Feel free to share by commenting.
If you have another thing, same idea. How can you grow in that thing in 2018?
