I am at the tail end of the third week of this new year of reading, time thus fly when you’re having fun, and it is starting to gain forward momentum, I had a few rocky moments in week number two but apparently that’s behind me now, so testify the 300-page day from yesterday.
Now let me update the overall progress of the year, and more importantly where do I stand on the broader picture.
My current total is 2,454 of the 64,952 pages of this year’s goal, with more than 340 days left on this year, things are shaping up pretty good, I say good and not fantastic because the current projection for the total at the end of the year sits at 44,818 pages, a bit of work left to reach the almost 65,000 pages for the year, but the tendency is going on the right track.
My reading schedule it’s a little behind , 4 days to be precise, but with the current results of yesterday and how today is shaping up, and the fact that the challenge of reading one book per each week of the reading is right on the money, close in on the final quarter of Horizon Storms, I think the gap will close fairly quickly,
Starting next Monday, I will start posting each week progress, and finally comparing how things are gaining ground slowly but surely.
Now let’s talk about the broader picture, my numbers show the kind of momentum I expect to see each and every week moving forward, as times dwindles down to a tighter schedule this is of the utmost importance in order to reach the golden prize.
On what concerns my first 500,000 pages, I have only 146,969 pages left, and the new date of reaching that goal is October 3, 2026, that’s 48 days sooner than the last time I check, still my sights are pointed at March 20, 2023 as the desired date to reach the first half of the challenge, this is thinking of having at least 3,000 days to read the other half.
And speaking of the golden prize of 1,000,000 pages, to my delight the projections puts it 8,479 days away, a 59 day gain from the last time I checked, making the end date is September 11, 2044, that’s 4,847 days after the original plan, 41 days less that the last projection, this kind of boost inject much needed energy to tackle on the next challenges.
To summary the numbers from my Journey Back, here are the numbers that officially kick-off the new year of reading:
- Pages to reach 500,000: 146,969 pages
- Days to reach 1,000,000: 8,479 days
- Days behind schedule: 4,847 days
This numbers keep me motivated to try my best each and every week, and now that reaching the 1,000,000-page mark has an added bonus, well, that just sends my focus thru the roof. You may ask what’s that prize at the end of the road, I can only answer that in due time I’ll extensively share with you me plans.
Off to read.
