Over the past four or five days, I have mentioned some hefty goals for myself in the New Year. According to the article I posted a week or so ago about how our morning routine helps us to accomplish our goals, please note there is a much better success rate of achieving our aspirations if we write down our plans. The commitment to making them happen is much greater.
So, I’m going to state right now I want to read more non-fiction in 2014. I prefer non-fiction over fiction, and get sidetracked by fictional stories too often. It’s too easy to be drawn into stories of other people and go on journeys with people I don’t even know. There’s an article in the Huffington Post called Why We Care about Fictional Characters,http://huff.to/JBZ5Bl by Blakey Vermeule, who writes that “people need to know what other people are like.” That explains why I get pulled into others tales.
Here is my short list of non-fiction I want to read in 2014:
- Give and Take
- David & Goliath
- The Examined Life
- Lean In: Women, Work & the Will to Lead
- Master Mind
- Faith Powered Profession
Personal insights into what makes a person “tick” can be gained through reading non-fiction: memoirs and autobiographies. One of my goals as I have gone through the writing process of recording my own personal story, has been to give the reader some insight into why I find living ones life with purpose, faith and personal fulfillment is so very important. It matters.
Hmmm….each one of these books on my list looks terrific. Where do I start?
