A random sampling of the world’s most successful people will show one common trait: a love of reading. Because reading is the easiest way to continue the learning process.
“Whatever problem you’re struggling with is probably addressed in some book somewhere written by someone a lot smarter than you."
...in terms of reading retention:
This could mean a phrase or quote that catches you off guard or changes the way you think about a certain topic. Or an interesting fact that you’ll want to save for later on.
It means that you have a specific goal at hand, you want to connect what you’re reading to other information and that it is something you’re invested in and will come back to again and again.
