Reframing excuses we make for not reading:

  • Time: Stop thinking of it as some activity that you do when you feel like it. It should be a reflex, a default.
  • Money: Reading is not a luxury. It’s a necessity.
  • Purpose: Whatever problem you’re struggling with, is probably addressed in some book somewhere by someone a lot smarter than you.

But with over a million books being published each year, the undeniable fact is: we need to find more time to read.
