I noticed that after we moved I stopped reading and stopped creating. I don't mean cold turkey, or 100%, but it all just never got back up and running. We cleaned, sorted, sold, packed, moved, remodeled, etc and when it was time for a union break I'd hit the laptop toread blogs or browse Pinterest or put my feet up in front of a movie for a few minutes. Not bad in and of themselves, until they became the norm.
So anyway, I decided that I was going to read more and create more in 2012. While I have specifically not dropped numbers into this desire, what I am doing is listing in the sidebar what I'm reading and what I'm creating once books and projects are either started or next up. As projects and books come to a close, the next up will be dropped into the queue. By the end of the year I'll be able to easily see what I did with my time.
A direction and a simple way to map the journey.
