This is an important quote from The Adults Who Treat Reading Like Homework:

Attainable reading goals can be motivating and improve the experience of reading, according to Neil Lewis Jr., a professor of psychology at Cornell University who studies motivation and goal pursuit. But “if the goal is unrealistic (given the realities of the person’s life) then it could actually be demotivating,” he told me in an email. “When people set goals like this, we often forget to take into account the other things that usually occupy our time and get in the way … If you have not been reading as much as you would like, it is probably because you are doing other things instead; are you willing to scale back on some of those things to make time for more reading?”

I’m adding it to Best Posts On Students Setting Goals.

How to Motivate Kids to Practice Hard Things is a really good piece from Greater Good Magazine. I like it a lot. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The 10,000 Hour Rule & Deliberate Practice.
