Reading Ancient Greek: A Case Study
This year I set myself the task of reading all 24 books of Homer’s massive epic poem The Odyssey in Ancient Greek. This has been on my bucket list for a long time, and I’m glad to finally be doing it.
I’m now 20 books in, with four more to go — well on the way to completing what I set out to do. And I have full confidence that I will finish on time, because I’ve aligned myself with the principles of growth deadlines.
To recap, growth deadlines:
- Make you better than you were before
- Involve doing difficult things
- Are based on sound knowledge and experience
- Are flexible and resilient enough to withstand chaos
Let’s see how those points apply in this case.
