This year I pledged to read 25 books. Right now, I’m 3 books behind schedule. 😬

Why?

Because I chose to work on my new blogging platform in my free time rather than reading books. 📖

Choices

It was a conscious choice. Not because I was lacking any free time outside my full-time job.

It’s pretty comfortable and familiar to say “I don’t have the time” when we’re presented with an opportunity to do something outside our normal routine. ⏰

Typically, we always have time. It’s when we choose to waste our time on unnecessary things that we start to feel the lack of time to do what’s meaningful.

There’s always a priority. And priority changes. 🔀

Last year, reading books was a priority. This year, getting my project to launch is a priority.

Thinking and saying that “I chose not to” do X, gives me control over the situation rather than being a victim.

I like to have control over my life.
