In 2018 I began posting my goals to the universe in an attempt to make myself more accountable for them. I am tracking them here along with details for my own benefit, and perhaps anyone else who may find any use in my code related exercises.

Sticking with the trend, I am extending my “Read 10 Books” goal to 12 books. As with 2018 and 2019, the value from reading is hard to measure exactly, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t substantial!

Writing Them Down

If I write a goal down it becomes more of a task than a fleeting thought; then these posts effectively become more of an accountability measure for me than anything else.

Read 12 Books

In addition to reading at least twelve unique books for the year, I want to diversify what kinds of books I read, spending slightly less time on the business management or “self improvement” genre, and get back into fantasy in particular.
