Never stop learning.
I read 105 books in 2018. This is the highest number I’ve achieved in one year since I started tracking my consumption. I’ve always been a big reader.
Growing up, my parents would tease that I just wasted books, as I could easily read multiple Babysitters Club or Animorphs books in a single road trip. Literature was one of my earliest leisure activities and my love for reading continues now.
I read all platforms. At any given time, I’m reading 3-4 titles, typically 2 audiobooks and 1-2 physical books or ebooks on my Kindle. I do try to make sure the books that I’m reading simultaneously are of different genres, so as not to confuse them.
In addition to my numerical goal, this year also marked a big change in my reading habits. I delved into more non-fiction titles than ever. Novels are generally my bag, but through my journey of self growth and mindfulness, I’ve definitely learned to love and appreciate those books that can further my growth. I’ve read books to learn more about the industry that I work in and love — employee recruitment and retention–and in doing so, found a new passion in mindfulness and mindset coaching.
This year, I hope to consume even more of this growth content and become a better qualified go-to person in the field of mindset training.
