To get better results in life you need to learn constantly. And the best way to learn is to read effectively and a lot.
A new idea, outlook on life, mental model, is all it takes for something to click inside your brain.
Your brain will start making connections between books that seemed to be on different topics. The more you read, the more links you form and the richer your understanding becomes.
Books give you the ability to learn to look through other’s eyes. It’s like having a conversation with the brightest minds from any given field.
To read, you need to be focused for long periods of time. Your mind is forced to focus again and again from page to page on new information.
A great way to get into reading more is to read to someone else: an elderly person or a shut-in, a friend’s child or your own son or daughter.
You will have a reading assignment that helps you stick to your reading habit.
Start off by setting a goal. This goal should be articulate and backed up with a purpose.
For some, it could be a goal of reading 24 books in a year. Once you’re done placing a target figure to your reading goal, then divide them into smaller goals.
