Oh Books Before 30, you seemed so achievable when I was 27, the deadline so far away. What was I thinking? Read all of these books before I’m 30 in July, I haven’t the time or the inclination. I’ve learned a lesson here: Never try.
No, wait, that’s not it.
Never set arbitrary goals for years in the future, enjoy reading in the present.
I’m a daydreamer (a fun, yet inconvenient super power) which means a lot of the time I’m a thinner version of myself skipping through the sun-swept daffodil fields of my mind. It’s great if life isn’t going so well, but it doesn’t actually fix anything when you’re spending your time imagining a better future rather than creating it.
The daydreaming causes me to want to make goals I can aim for because I’ve already imagined how I will feel when it’s done. While not actually considering the process of getting it done. It’s taken 29 years and almost 10 months, but finally I’ve realised:
Stop dreaming, start
I won’t finish Books Before 30, but that’s okay.
