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 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.
“Read 500 pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.”
To get better results in life you need to learn constantly. And the best way to learn is to read effectively and a lot.
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.
“Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary.”
“Go to bed smarter than when you woke up.”
Unless you schedule reading time in your busy day, you may not be able to squeeze it anywhere between all of the other tasks already crowding the calendar.
Even if you can only devote 15 minutes for reading— the time it takes you to commute to work— do put it in your schedule.
It’s important to have a deep willingness to read and grow in the process. Approach reading as a fun, enjoyable and transformational activity that ultimately impacts your life.
With this kind of mindset, you’ll become intentional about the books you read by picking out those areas in your life that need improvement and plan towards growing to the next level by reading the right books that target those problem areas.
