2020 Learning Plan

Another year gone by and an opportune time to review my learning plan. I plan to stay away from courses to keep my weekends free for the kids but I am in a good habit of reading most mornings of the week. I tend to jump from one topic to another and although this may not be the most efficient approach it keeps me reading. I like to have different options: library book, fiction, non-fiction, audiobooks, physio, strength, etc. In the list below I have books I definitely want to get through but my list inevitably ends up being more extensive as the weeks and months go by. One book tends to lead to other books or articles and I like to keep my options open.

The only major difference from last year is the additon of a scond child:) Thankfully both sleep well and we have a  good weekly rhythm. I have gotten rid of all my social media apps and only have a sport app to distract me on a daily basis. This leaves me with ample opportunity to read each day as almost all my spare down time goes into reading

The areas of practice I plan to continue to invest in are patient engagement, behaviour change and training principles.

Here is my reading list for 2020.


  1. Birds without wings
  2. Sarah’s Key
  1. Captain Corellis Mandonlin


  1. Motivational interviewing for nutrition and exercise
  2. CBT made simple

  3. The mindful therapist: A clinicians guide to mindsight and neural integration.


  1. Review: The little black book of training wisdom
  2. How to squat
  3. The Art of lifting
  4. The science of lifting
  5. 26 Marathons What I learned about faith, identity and running
  6. Fast after 50: how to race strong for the rest of your life

Personal development

  1. The second mountain
  2. The achievement habit
  3. Review: 7 habits of highly effective people

I hope this inspires a year of learning. Cheers
