How often do you read?
One of the best ways to grow your mind is to simply read on a consistent basis. Success can be defined as “a few simple disciplines practiced every day.” On that notion, we should be reading every day on a consistent basis in order to become successful. We can learn from our peers, role models, and those who have accomplished exactly what we are striving to do. I make an effort to read at least 6o minutes every day. Do you?
- Tips for reading. Start your day reading something. End your day reading something. This will allow your brain to gather information at critical times each day. Learning to read faster and more comprehensively will also help enhance your reading experience. As long as you do it on a consistent basis, you will develop a habit to crave knowledge.
- Why read? If you read for an hour per day consistently, you will be an expert in that field in 5-7 years, which will make you more valuable. Reading will cause you to be inspired and take action on what you are passionate about. Reading also takes your mind to other places and allows you to dream. When is the last time you were lost in a book? Reading consistently will increase your vocabulary and overall understanding of the English language, which could help you become more knowledgeable at work and ultimately lead to a higher position.
