A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it. ~ Jean de La Fontaine
The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. ~ Albert Einstein
My goal for 2015 is to tune out the multitude of distractions in order to focus on things that really matter to me, like reading. I want to read more selectively and deliberately as well as write more consistently and about what I read.
This means I must cut out most if not all of my incessant Internet sleuthing. I’m going to stop reading random material I come across via social media, but get back to the good old fashioned way of sitting somewhere in solitude away from a computer or any other Internet connected device with an actual book, preferably one made of paper and written in ink (although in some cases my Kindle Paperwhite will suffice).
My first pick for this year is a book that’s been on my “to read” list for a while now, which is Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom.
You rule the world through your mind. ~ Marcus Garvey
