All or Nothing

I think I am going about this all the wrong way.

I recently read an article (which I shared here) about how sometimes we go about a hobby/passion with the “all or nothing approach”.  If we don’t do it in a certain way, then we just give up and don’t do it at all.

I think that is the struggle I am having with reading right now. I want to do it a certain way. I want to be like all the other people that are blogging about reading and finishing 3 or 4 books a month. I want to actually live up to the reading challenge that I signed up for.

So, the solution?

Instead of reading it on the KINDLE (I downloaded my current selection for free), I am going to check it out of the library. I need the real book in my hands. I do love the digital version on occasion, but if I am going to read a classic, I would rather have the book in hand. Plus if I check it out of the library, I have a deadline.

We will start there.

I will also not set such lofty goals for myself. Just a day at a time, a page at a time.
