I surpassed my goal of reading 40 books & hit 60 for the Goodreads 2020 Reading Challenge! Also see money goals and more. For many years I gave myself the excuse that I didn't have the time to sit down and read, and barely read 1 book a year. So how did I do it? Well listening to audiobooks while driving or training for sports to stay in shape   definitely helps. Luckily books in Amazon Kindle format can also be read by Echo devices and even using the Alexa app. My top books by category read in 2020 were: Financial Independence ·  The Wealthy Gardener audio / book ·  Money Master the Game audio / book Motivational ·  Principles audio / book ·  The Obstacle is the Way audio / book Health/Wellness ·  The Blue Zones book ·  The Omnivore's Dilemma audio / book Fun/Historical ·  The Great Influenza audio / book ·  Sapiens audio / book Business/Technology ·  Elon Musk audio / book ·  The Four audio / book You can see the full 2020 list &

So what is the secret with achieving goals? Maybe you've reached some, but if you are like many you make big goals & then give up when it gets out of reach.   In my younger years I struggled for years with keeping consistent with exercise. Then the TV show Ninja Warrior came along where I trained for 30 days & completed most of the obstacles. The same thing happened with my financial life - for years I lived in fear of picking the wrong investments, but now with the power of FIRE I'm on track to reach financial freedom in 7 years so my daughters can model the behavior. Let's look at what works: Fun - Make it a game with rewards along the way. I love trying new craft beer, so for me that is a great incentive along the way to keep me motivated. I also love competition, so   challenging others can also help. Strong Desire - Having a powerful purpose drives our passion. Having a WHY is critical - the 80% vs. the how 20%. We need
