#niWord of the Day – Tsundoku

I can’t believe I’m guilty of ‘Tsundoku’ – but I am.

I have lots of piles of book around the house at the moment, as the definition suggests – on the coffee table, under the bed, my bedside table, the desk in my office and even on the floor next to the bookshelves because the bookshelves are already full of books.

My saving grace here is that nowhere in the definition does it hint at or allude to intention.

The books I’ve bought are always bought with the intention of being read – and I do read a lot – but I do really love books so I regularly hit the charity shops and buy several at a time – much more than one person could read (and still have a life).

But they say the road to hell is paved with good intentions but intent alone will not get you there. The captain on the titanic probably intended to miss the iceberg.

Which of these four obstacles are getting in the way of your goals.



Sometimes obstacles can stop us from reaching our goals – but obstacles should never stop us from trying to reach our goals. Perhaps you want to start a business but don’t know where to begin? Perhaps you need to grow your business to the next level but need help with the strategy. Perhaps you just need someone who has been in your position who can give some friendly advice? The Nottingham Institute was set up with the express intent of helping people to achieve their goals together. If you can identify what stands between you and what you want to achieve, then perhaps The Nottingham Institute can help you.

The Nottingham Institute is an organisation that brings talented and ambitious people people together to help each other achieve amazing things. If you know where you want to be, but not how to get there, then contact The Nottingham Institute.

I can guarantee you this – a year from now, you will wish you had acted today.
