I went with reading as my first challenge. I’m starting with reading a minimum of 1/2 hour. I figure that’s manageable even on the busiest of days. I have a virtual pile of books that I either actually started over the summer or bought and intended to start that I thought would be good to get through. Plus, I wanted to get myself away from the computer screen and the quick reading I do fairly regularly for both work and pleasure. I thought this might be a good way to retrain my focus on longer form reading.
I mentioned at my department meeting yesterday that I was trying this out and at least one colleague joined me. He’s planning to play the banjo. Way ambitious I’d say, but I’m happy to have the company. We’ll see if we both make it. And then see what’s next!
