2020 Reading Challenge: 52 Books in 52 Weeks!

Hi Readers!
You all know how much of a planner I am. You can clearly see that from the 20 Things to do in 2020 post. While I am always organized in most matters, there is one important area where I am haphazard. And that, dear readers, is shockingly READING! I never plan on the number of books to read in a month. I never decide to read specific titles. I always read as per my mood. I randomly pick up an unread book from my bookshelf. Or when I see repetitive recommendations, I just download the e-book & start reading. So, that’s that. And, I love the freedom that comes along with it. There’s no pressure. However, this year, I am doing something different. In 2020, since my main focus is going to be on reading, I thought to make it a little HAPPENING.

Last year I was able to read 40 books quite easily. So, I thought of targeting 50 books, but then I came up with this plan: 52 BOOKS IN 52 WEEKS! This is just one part of the 2020 Reading Challenge.

Another part is the interesting one. I always used to see these lists of books on Pinterest. So, out of nowhere, I thought I ought to make a list too! And, that is how I came up with the ULTIMATE READING CHALLENGE! Below are the 52 types of books I plan on reading! Some are as per genre, some are recommendations, some are random, some are fun & lastly 6 books out of 52 can be anything I want to read. Because I am a moody reader, I did not want to make too rigid a schedule. So, these 6 books will be breathing space for me.
I am super optimistic about the 2020 Reading Challenge: 52 Books in 52 Weeks! If you like it, you can follow it as well!!

Until next time,

20 Things To Do in 2020!

Hi Readers! How are you all doing? This is the first post of 2020 & it had to be this one; 20 Things to do in 2020!! Doing this thing last year really helped me in a lot of ways. I was able to monitor my growth, measure my productivity & actually see the change within the span of a year. It is another plus point that I am a compulsive planner, which is why I loved planning this. But, to think that I accomplished 85 % of the 19 things is something I am proud of.

Enough about the past. Let’s talk about 2020! This year round, I have made just a few changes in the 20 things, because now these are not just things, but habits which I cannot give up. Like reading, listening to TED talks, savings, writing blog posts, focusing on health, cooking & so on. Once I started making this list, I thought it was too boring or generic. So, I added a few fun things as well. I hope I will do those despite my love for boring. Anyway, have a look at my 20 Things to do in 2020!

Another ritual that I am starting is The Daily Habit tracker! I saw this idea on Pinterest (where else!) I really liked the thought of mapping everything I do every day & then marking it in little boxes for a job done. Obsessive? Yes Compulsive? Yes Do I love it? YES!

As much as I’d have liked to do this in just one page for the whole year, it is impossible. So, even though these are the things I need to do daily, I am going to make the tracker monthly for convenience. These are some of the daily targets I plan on achieving in 2020!

Some of the above things I already do daily, but some things I don’t do consistently. So, if I had to mark it every single day, I know I will do those. Would I brush my teeth at night to avoid dental problems? Maybe, maybe not. But, will I brush my teeth just so I could colour a tiny square? Absolutely yes!
In addition to not using mobile phone for an hour a day, I am also going to incorporate a No Social Media day once a week. I had way too many things to do, which is why I didn’t add it in the list. This is why there is no real pressure to do it, but I am going to do my best.

So, here I am! Ready for the New Year. Ready for the new decade! With all the targets planned & things set to achieve, I can only hope to have a lot of fun while I do all of these things & more! Happy New Year!!
Until next time,
