Can you believe that we are a quarter of the way through 2012 already? I still remember from my agency days how our work revolved around goals and evaluations for each quarter. We would have called this first quarter – JFM – for January, February, March. So with Sunday marking the 1st of April, I thought it would be a good idea to check in on my progress toward my 2012 reading goal.
The goal was to read 18 books this year. To be keeping pace with that goal, I should have read 4 1/2 books by now. Here’s how I’ve done:
I have two books going simultaneously right now, one on my kindle and one in hard copy, and I am half way through both:
1/2. The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss
1/2. Born to Run by Christopher McDougall
I’m going to need to step it up a bit in the next three months, but I’ve got some good books on my to-read list so it shouldn’t be too hard to find the motivation.
