Don’t Let the Fools Win — READ!
Habitual reading is hands down one of the most important things I do. If you don’t read for yourself it is REALLY hard to think for yourself, which only holds you back, hurts our society, and helps the fools win. Don’t let the fools win. Read a book. I dare you to read 1 non-fiction book a month (no offense fiction readers). It will change your life! If you struggle to read because you feel like you don’t have the time, don’t know where to start, or don’t see the point in reading, I have a resource that I believe can really help you.
Right now I get to manage a thriving consulting firm, I get to serve as the teaching pastor of a large church, I get to teach for multiple colleges and universities, and I get to serve on the leadership of 2 GREAT non-profit organizations. I’m not sharing this to say, “Look at me!” I’m sharing this to let you know that I know what it is like to deal with the blessings of work and family and the curse of busyness. How do I find the time to read? I make the time, apply what I read, and it helps me thrive in every area of my life. Here’s what I read in the last 30 days:
The Year Without Pants: Wordpress.com and the future of work by Scott Berkun
I Can’t Make This Up by Kevin Hart
Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success by Steve Harvey
The Catalyst Leader by Brad Lomenick
