Leaders are readers. It is true. If the most successful people on this planet are known for reading multiple hours per day I think it’s a safe bet to invest your time in reading for at least 30 minutes to an hour per day. It is said that Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Elon Musk all read more than 3 hours per day! You would wonder how they make the time for that since they have so much responsibility running multibillion dollar institutions. They would probably say they can’t do what they do or wouldn’t be so successful if they did’t invest their time reading.
Reading is a superpower. You get to literally tap in to any well spring of knowledge you desire. And you can do it for FREE! If your struggling with something you can solve the problem by reading. You can’t put a monetary value on it but you literally make yourself more valuable with each extra word you put in your head. So go read anything! Read for at least 30 minutes. If you can’t do it that means you must do it. If you don’t have the time or the money that means you have to do it. It will only help to alleviate with those problems. Go read a book on investing or how to increase your income. If you want to be better with time go read books on how to manage your time. Want to start a business? Go read a book on that!
It’s a pretty neat skill to have. The more you use it the better you get and the more fun it becomes because you will start to reap the benefits of the inputs you are putting in your head! If you can’t figure out what to read ask yourself what area of your life you want to improve and go find a book on that. If you just want to read for fun, go read anything that appeals to you…fiction, biography etc.
Your mental workout every day is to read for at least 30 minutes per day and ideally an hour. If you can do more than an hour you will reap even more benefits. Enjoy your superpower!
