Today’s post is a short one. I just want to share the one biggest reason for my success in life: being a voracious reader. My weapon of choice is the Kindle, I’m constantly on the lookout for new books and articles and sending them to my Kindle for reading later. Coming from a small and pretty isolated island I can definitely say that if I hadn’t read so much I would never have enjoyed the success that I have today.
Reading has taught me all I needed to be successful in life and business. Although I have three University degrees, I must confess that I skipped most lectures, simply because I felt they were too boring for me. Instead I spent time in some quite place devouring book after book on the topics that interested me most.
So if you want to be successful and don’t have a habit of reading, start now, read something daily, and allocate time during the week for extended reading sessions of 45 minutes to one hour. Extra bonus tip: Make sure you keep a blog/journal/diary where you can write down new concepts that you learn or ideas that you get while reading.
