Readjusting Goals – What should I do?

aka the moment I realized that I might not make it.

 


 

At the beginning of the year, I had some lofty reading goals and now I’ve found myself woefully behind on all counts. According to my Goodreads Challenge, I’m four books behind schedule, I’ve not read a single King novel since last November, and my Austen challenge hasn’t left the ground. And let’s not even mention the one in one out rule I made re: my TBR. Ha!

 

Oh, but I HAVE read three of my most anticipated so, that’s ONE thing going my way. Still not fast enough to read them all before the year is over but one a month is better than none at all.

 

The saddest part of all of this is that I really want to be able to meet all of my goals, but real life just won’t let me be great (kidding, I’m grateful for everything about my real life as it stands). Unfortunately, I don’t see things changing any time soon. So, do I reduce my numbers, or just continue as I’m going and see how close to my original goals I can get?

 

I don’t want to readjust because that feels like quitting or admitting defeat, and I don’t think I’m there yet. But what if that’s just stubbornness talking and the reality is that I’ve already fallen too far behind? Gah! Idk…

 

I need your help on this one guys. What would you do if you were in my position? For context: My Goodreads Challenge is 70 books and I’ve read 12 and my anticipated is 20 and I’ve read three.

 

(Also, some good audiobook recommendations would be appreciated!)

  1. Don’t feel bad if you have to put your target down, but maybe wait ’til June or July to see where things stand? And remember, you can always put targets back up again if your reading starts picking up! 🙂

    I just audiobooked (it’s a word now,) Not My Father’s Son by Alan Cumming – I’m not that into celeb. books, but that was amazing! Warning though – it gets pretty heavy (metaphorically – audiobooks have no weight!)
