Two things I want to do more, much more of this year is reading and writing.
Writing is the superpower I’ve recently realized I have. It’s that moment in the movie where the protagonist stares at his hands in disbelief because he just blew up the wall in front of him in a moment of fury. His life is different now knowing he has this new power.
My writing has been fully unleashed this year and I do not want to stop.
I want to do more reading because the more I could read, the better I will write. Reading more will allow me to be exposed to ideas I can steal and make into my own.
But it’s not just about reading more, but reading better. The media and social media is junk food. I’ve spent the last month not on social media and I’ve been the better for it, a thousand times over. I have rows of books that are more unread than read. I want to change that this year.
I feel like 5-10 hours of reading and 10-15 hours of writing feels like goals for someone who do take both very seriously. If the rest of my time is taken up with calls and life, I think I can make use of the other times to enhance my superpower.
