Again, an expected week of failing.  I was pleased to have written two fragments, and that I continued catching up with the I Remember writing.

Reading was a big disappointment.  I didn’t read a single page.  Yes, I was travelling for a good chunk of the week, but that should have been conducive to greater reading, and not an obstruction.  Instead, I listened to a number of podcasts, and then eased back into the work week.

Next week is, from my perspective a true week where these goals should really be seriously tackled and ideally met.  I will endeavour to do so.

Each week I aim to provide an update on the Journal of Failure.  These reports are intended to provide an impetus for me to achieve as much as I should/more than I do, and also to provide a further ongoing record of my life, as it is.
