I used to avoid reading as much as possible. I trained myself to love reading and I am so grateful that I did.
I can confidently speak about and understand a wide array of topics that I used to be uncertain about – financial markets, physics, genetics, relationships, marketing, history, investing, business, leadership, and more.
Reading is a superpower.
If you don’t know what to read that means you aren’t reading books. Virtually every book you read will have references and recommendations of other books to read. Start out by reading what you love.
“Read what you love until you love to read. Everybody I know who reads a lot loves to read, and they love to read because they read books that they loved. It’s a little bit of a catch-22, but you basically want to start off just reading wherever you are and then keep building up from there until reading becomes a habit. And then eventually, you will just get bored of the simple stuff.”

Make it a habit to read for 30 minutes per day. If you can’t do that start with one page per day.
Don’t have time?
Rather than scrolling through social media make it a habit to open up your Kindle app instead and read for 1-2 minutes.
I compiled a list of books on that have impacted my life.
