You should be reading everyday, no questions asked. Yes, some days you might not get the chance to do it, but try it at least. I ask you to try it for a week. Try reading everyday for a week, for at least thirty minutes. See how you feel, notice how you’re talking, notice how your brain is working. Reading does stimulating things to the mind. The more you read the more your mind gets addicted to the information it is interested in. Reading makes you smarter, it also makes you listen better because you get addicted to hearing words. I made a quest to read 30 books this year, and it’s fucking hard to do, let me tell you. I am no where near where I wanted to be, but close. We all have busy lives and it becomes very easy to get distracted with everything that is going on in the world today. But, just reading for even 15-30 minutes a day can change a lot for you. Reading makes our minds expand and think of different ideas. You never know, your next great business could just come from reading something that caught your eye. We look at many successful people in this world, and they all will say that reading is key if you want to be successful.
The great investor, Warren Buffet said himself “read 500 pages a day.” Now, you’re probably saying Warren, now thats a little excessive. You might not be able to read 500 pagers per day, but starting with a number and sticking to that is what’s important. And from there you read more and more everyday and continue to improve. Now, you might be asking yourself what should I read? Well, you have many options. First, read something that you’re interested in but also look to expand your mind on new subjects. I have a subscription to the New York Times and read that everyday. I would say the three best reliable sources to get great articles with great content are the New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal. Read one or even all three everyday, and you’ll have unlimited content to fill your brain with.
Reading expands your mind, so make sure you’re filling it with content everyday!
