Welcome to the first Magic Monday of year number fifteen and the first of the month of June. I haven’t made a proper report of my progress since May 23, and it’s about damn time.
This year’s goal are pretty similar from year fourteen, read one book a week, get at least 64,492 total pages, and more importantly, have an amazing time doing so.
The first week went by in a flash, between celebrating my birthday, preparing the proper digital files to keep track of the progress, and created what I expect to be the ultimate bullet journal for manually tracking my reading, my reading was subpar, but not awful.
Now let’s talk about MY NUMBERS, the current total is 1,169 of the 64,952 pages of this year’s goal, a pretty decent progress to start off the year.The upcoming, and as mention on my last post, I’m shooting for a 3,000 plus week.
My reading schedule, the Achilles heel of last year, is right on schedule, this gives me the incentive to not fall back, as long as it is right on time, that will suffice.
The mantra for every morning will continue to be:, one step at a time, one page at a time.
I start the week two with a deficit of 101 pages, as I said it’s was a blur this week, and the results were good, but I’ll quicken the pace.
For the first 500,000 pages, I have only 82,455 pages left, and the new date of reaching that goal is February 24, 2025 that’s 79 days earlier than the last projection, my sights are still pointed at March 20, 2023 as the desired date to reach the first half of the challenge, now I have 281 days to do so.The gap narrowed from 744 to 708 days behind schedule.
The second part of the journey, or the other 500,000 pages, my weekly pages needed are now 1,526 with a daily average of 218 pages, 3 pages less than the last projection.
Now for the golden prize of 1,000,000 pages, to my delight, the projections puts it 6,969 days away, a 93 day gain from the last projection, making the end date is July 12, 2041 that’s 3,690 days after the original plan, 72 days less that the last projection. I have to keep reminding myself that my goal is to reach my goal by my 50th birthday, right now, I would be 60 years 1 months, and 7 days old.
To summary the numbers from my Journey Back.
- Pages to reach 500,000: 82,455 pages
- Days to reach 1,000,000: 6,969 days
- Days behind schedule: 3,690 days
Off to read.
