you know the books where the words blur together and you can’t understand what’s happening? Those are the books a leader needs to read. Reading to lead or learn requires that you treat your brain like the muscle that it is–lifting the subjects with the most tension and weight. How To Digest Books Above Your “Level” And Increase Your Intelligence
I was talking to a friend in publishing recently and found out that the category of people that they almost aren’t even bothering with is men in the 20 – 40 bracket.
They just don’t buy books.
That makes me sad. There is so much good to be pulled from books. Books have changed my business for the better. Without the learning I did when reading, I wouldn’t be able to coach people like I do now.
You’d get much poorer service.
Without reading books, I’d be a much worse parent. My marriage would be way behind where it is now.
My life is as good as it is because I read and then work to put the good stuff into action.
To add to Ryan Holiday’s suggestions above, get How to Read a Book. I’m beginning to lose track of the people I look up to that tell me they read How to Read A Book and felt that most of their reading before was wasted.
Have an awesome day!
