Hello, I'm Mitchell 🙂
What I’m Learning
Read 3 Books Per Month
My ultimate goal for 2020 is to read more. I’ve challenged myself to read 3 books per month. I’d like to build up to reading a book a week (on average) by next year. So far, so good.
This is so unlike anything else that I’ve worked on, but I love it. It’s one of the few practices in my life that combines logic and creativity. I works both sides of my brain and it keeps me busy.
