Turn your reading habits into specific and time-sensitive goals and place them on your priority list.
Finding good books can be a real challenge. To reduce effort in selecting books, you can search for a curated list compiled by leaders you admire.
You can also Google the “favorite books” of successful people you follow, ask people you admire what they read, or simply follow your own interests.
To get great results, you should appreciate and moreover enjoy reading.
1. You may start by picking books that relate directly to a personal interest or skill you’d like to develop.
2. Then set a specific time each day you’ll read.
Depending on your own interests, you may go for books related to personal development, habit change, healthy living, productivity and so on.
You can schedule reading during breaks such as lunch or dinner, or in the early morning before going to work.
Set a simple timer to make sure you read for at least 20 minutes. Or start by reading 20 pages per day, meaning about 30 minutes.
Of course, don’t limit your reading time to 30 minutes per day when you have more time. Read as much as you can.
You’ll notice that your writing skills also improve as you start reading on a daily basis due to the new concepts you learn constantly.
A good idea is to start your day by reading at least 20 pages in the morning, even if that means waking up one hour earlier.
In the morning, your mind is clear and your body is relaxed after sleeping, so it’s the perfect moment to invest in yourself.
Start by removing all the elements that distract you and turn off your TV or PC. Then pick a book, get a timer, start the timer, read 10 pages and record your results.
The next stage is to set 20 minutes per day to practice speed reading.
