My reading list is no joke 21 books deep. I have books about Psychology, Theology, Philosophy, Marriage, Parenting, Football, Leadership & Money.
I like to read, but I don't always make time for it.
A subtle life challenge for 2012 for myself is creating daily time to read. I desperately like to learn and believe reading is a way to help nurture that craving for myself. Many people i know wish they were "less busy" so they could read more. I got to thinking how can I create more time to read so I gave myself a little test over for 4 hours one day.
The test was to see how many minutes I could have read instead of "_____________". I discovered that over the course of 4 hours I felt i wasted or misused roughly 35minutes. So I then took 35minutes as reading before I could move on to anything else. Because of that I didn't finish one task & had to stay up a little later at night to accomplish it. For every action there is a reaction principle.
A great part of this so fas has been trying to test myself here & there and I keep finding myself staying a little more on task to free up some reading time. I'm not trying to set aside uninterrupted hours to read, but steal 30-45minutes here and there. By the end of the week it'll all add up.
So as I finish books I'll post a few thoughts from each book on my blog to let you into what I read over the next 12 months. I don't know if I'll read all 21 books, but we'll see.
