Half of those books will nonetheless be on my record in 2020 as a result of I’ll nonetheless be which means to learn them and nonetheless won’t have executed so. Different books will pop up in Audible emails, catching my consideration and leaving me dying to pay attention. It simply occurs, and I continuously wrestle with shiny object syndrome.
