My one and only resolution for 2021 was to read at least 1,000 pages a month. It could be any reading material. The only rule was that I could only count the pages when I finished the entire piece.

I far exceeded the goal.

  • 94 books
  • 23,479 pages
  • 1956.57 average pages per month

But that is not the point of this post.

I thought that Reading was the overall goal, but I gained something else.

The ability to Finish.

Let me back up. I am the type of person who enjoys the journey. I am not results oriented. The process is much more meaningful.

This means that typically I have tons of unfinished projects and that I am always on the hunt for the next project even when I’m in the middle of the current one.

I noticed today that I am being persistent in finishing the book I am reading before starting the next one.

My To Do list includes “Finish the necklace” rather than “gather the materials for the next beading project.”

Current project in progress

I hadn’t set any resolutions for 2022. But now that I see I have unexpected results from 2021, I’m thinking one or two might lead me in new directions.

I’ll let you know!
