I doubled my reading goal for this year. Last year my goal was to read one book. I beat that goal with 82 books to spare (108 if you consider the letters of the Ante-Nicene Fathers I read as each counting as one book). This year I set as my goal two books. So far I've met that goal with 20 books to spare. If I feel confident enough, I may set a goal of three books in 1013.
I don't like not meeting goals. That's why I set them so low.
