I’ve always found it helpful to do a short review at the end of a month to recap all that I was able to get accomplished and to look forward to what I’m going to work on next month. It helps to put things into perspective and highlight where I fell short and where I excelled. My main goal in March was to read for 30 minutes a day. While I started out the month wonderfully, I ended up slowing down a bit towards the end of the month. According to my Lift app, I managed to read 17/31 days during the month, which is just over half of the time. Here are some books I got into:
Show Your Work (Austin Kleon)
Steal Like and Artist (Austin Kleon)
10 1/2 Things No Commencement Speaker Has Ever Said (Charles Wheelan)
I would highly recommend each of those books. Wheelan’s book is terrific for any recent or soon-to-be college grad. Kleon’s books are mainly for those that work in the creative field, although that’s not mandatory.
As for articles published, March was a slow month. However, I have a few awesome pieces in the pipeline that I’m hoping will be published soon.
So, what’s up next for April? One of my big focuses is going to be on meditation with the help of the Headspace app. I’ve never meditated before in my life (that I remember) so this should be interesting. We’ll see how it goes!
