Sacrifice Something & Read

I made an unofficial goal to read a book a week.  That was two years ago.  I’m still building to it.  Who knew that making that goal would be incompatible with raising a child?  I thought about that goal when I read a post today.

As I’ve said before on Intersections, I read Michael Hyatt’s blog, and he consistently offers helpful posts in several areas, including leadership, publishing, and social media.  Yesterday he had a guest post by Robert Bruce who’s reading through Time magazine’s 100 top English-speaking novels.

Robert, a new father, who’s employed full-time and who trains for marathons, offers five way to make more time to read.  They are:

  1. Sacrifice something.
  2. Make a routine.
  3. Set a goal.
  4. Have fun.
  5. Mix it up.
If you’d like to see the post, and it’s a quick one–after all, Robert has little time to blog because he’s readingtake a look here.  It’ll help you see a few ways you can actually find time to read.  I’m still reading stories once a week from All Hagar’s Children, a book at the office about emotional systems called How Your Church Family Works, and daily at home The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.  What about you?  Reading anything these days?
