I had a goal to read 25 books last year. And I didn't quite make it. Which bums me out because I'm pretty competitive and like reaching goals. But I have to remind myself I read more than the year before and that was an accomplishment.
I learned that sometimes the journey towards the goal is just as important, if not more important, than reaching the goal itself.
Who you become along the way, and what you learn along the way, is way more important than simply being able to say you got there.

They all impacted me for different reasons. And I'm a better person for having read the words of these wonderful authors.
Do you set reading goals? What was the most influential or inspiring book you read last year or this year so far?
