Read:

  • Read Bible
  • Read 10,000 books in my lifetime.

This goal is quite broad. Really, it just means read a lot and constantly be learning. I believe education is life-long, and the best of it is often self-driven.

To that end, I want to make sure I go through lots and lots of books! I started reading in 2013 with a simple goal of understanding why people read so much. I started with The Power of Sub Conscious Mind and did not read for months until I felt this urge to read again as the things I learned in the book were imprinted in my mind. I try to read as often as possible. Sometimes I read books, other times I read articles and blogs.

Still, the goal of at least 2 books per month will stand, though I think I’ll have to up that significantly if I’m to reach 10,000 before I die. If you want to follow my progress, follow me on goodreads. You can also check out the list of books I recommend to everyone.
