In 2019, I had kept the goal of reading 26 books and ended up reading 20. And for 2020, I kept the goal for 39 books.
Experiencing that I can read 20 books gave me confidence that I can read 39 too. 20 books was an experience upon which I built the dream of reading 39 books. That’s three books every four weeks.
Though I like that I could read 39 books, it didn’t come as a surprise as the foundation for it was ready.
That’s how we build and achieve our goals. The first few times are crucial when our goals are meager. The determination we build during that time helps us build lofty goals.
