My resolution for 2017 is to get back into the habit of reading as much as possible. I used to be pretty good about this, but with a young family and evolving responsibilities, available hours became more precious. Reading time didn’t seem as attractive from an ROI standpoint as it once did.
Until I read this article in Inc Magazine (see, resolution already working!) about how some of the world’s smartest people dedicate five hours per week to do something that develops them personally, such as reading or learning.
I’m sure that in the weeks and months to come, there will be days when I don’t get a full hour’s worth of reading. But on the whole I hope to achieve this resolution more often than not. It may require an earlier alarm clock or a purposefully misplaced remote control, but its not a resolution if its too easy!
I also know that making your resolutions publicly known is a great way to hold yourself accountable. So here’s mine…what are yours?
