I graduated from college almost 34 years ago. When I look back over all those years and think about what I’ve actually done in my working hours, I would say the best thing I did was to read books.
When I finished one, I pushed myself to find another. Not counting mystery novels, I’ve now finished 560 books since college graduation. I probably started and didn’t finish 200 more.
The beautiful thing about reading books is that the impact on your mind is not just the number of books you’ve read. The impact is much, much more exponential than that because your mind starts to combine ideas from multiple books and leads into new ideas. This is the greatest of reading and reading and reading.
Read as much as you can. At least 10 pages a day. You will be vastly better equipped to consistently deliver excellence when you do that.
