It was taking a course in speed-reading that finally made me try audiobooks.
In my previous blog post, I wrote about my adventures and outcomes in taking MindValley’s 21-day Super Reading course last November.
After my mediocre showing in Q3, with its debilitating heat during both the Pacific Northwest Heat Dome and the hot-hot east coast where I later fled home expecting cooler climes, I was determined to finish the year on a positive note.
Or perhaps more accurately, what a difference one week makes.
At the time of writing this, I’m also half-vaccinated.
Setting and achieving your goals during a pandemic is a delicate balance. Always with goal-setting you want to find the sweet spot between ambitious and realistic, between things that will challenge you but you’ll still actually be able to do.
Indeed, once December hit, the year seemed to make up for its previous glacial progress due to Covid-19, at once jetting by and forcing me to likewise race to try to finish my outstanding resolutions for the year.
This wasn’t just to counteract last year’s wildly inaccurate “Grand Plans” amidst a year that proved to hold anything but for the whole world due to Covid-19.
In the matter of achieving year-long goals it really does feel like the point where shit, as they say, gets Real.
But we’ve now passed the official midpoint of the year.
