I started experimenting with the Audiobooks Listening Challenge in 2020 and am beginning to get a hang of how to listen to more audiobooks. In 2022, I would be listening to 50 audiobooks


  • Buy one Audiobook every month which comes with my premium monthly subscription on
  • Borrow Audiobooks from the Public Library

Listening Times

  • Gym Time: Listen while on the threadmill or during weight lifting session
  • Commute: Listen while in traffic or transit (Airport, waiting time).
  • Early in Morning and before sleeping.


I started experimenting with the Magazine reading challenge in 2021 and was able to read 28 Magazines in 2021. I am aiming to be more consistent in 2022.

Goal: Read 50 digital magazines by December 31st, 2022.

Strategy: Borrow from the public library through platforms such as RB Digital and Flipster.

Reading Time: Weekends (1-2 Magazine per week).


One of the ways that I try to stay sharp is by listening to my favorite podcasts such as The Tim Ferris Show, How I Built This with Guy Raz, Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman, Lex Fridman Podcast among others. The podcast host interviews the brightest minds and thought leaders wherein they discuss their worldview, lesson learned, insights, recommend great books, thought processes, and navigating the roller coaster called life. – To be the best, learn from the best.

A podcast is an episodic series of digital audio files that a user can download to a personal device for easy listening. 

Goal: Listen to 365 podcasts by December 31st, 2022.
Strategy: Listen to one podcast per day.

One of my favourite type of book to read is the biography/autobiography of great minds. Reading biographies gives the reader a glimpse of the subject/writers life, their journey, lessons learned, failures, successes, trails and tribulations among other insights. To be the best, it is great to study the greats, their work habit, ethics, philosophy, thought process and worldview.

biography is a detailed description of a person’s life. It involves more than just the basic facts like education, work, relationships, and death; it portrays a person’s experience of these life events. 1

Goal: Read 50 biographies by December 31st 2022
Strategy: Read and Finish one biography per week.


I have been experimenting with the 100 Books Reading Challenge since 2016 and it has become one of my favourite thing to do yearly. I am always striving to become more self-aware, learning new things, understand the world better and become a better version of myself. I strive to read for at 2-3 hours daily via my kindle, laptop, iPod and on my phone. I am not where I want to be but am not where I used to be.

Goal: I read 100 non-fiction books by December 31st 2022.
