Looking back at Q3 2017

Here’s my third check-in for the entertainment goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year. It seemed to be pretty simple. Impossible to fail. It’s looking like I was wrong. Here are the goals I set:

  1. Watch 100 movies, at least one each week (never watched before)
  2. Play and finish at least 15 games already in my collection (never finished before, played is okay)
  3. Read 26 books (never read before)

You can check my progress during the first and second quarters of the year here and here. Check my July to September progress below, then let me know how your goals for the year are going.

  3. Read 26 books (never read before)

Three months into the year, some of these are looking a lot more achievable than others. Let’s take a look at what I’ve done so far below.
