Reading and self improvement is a great investment.
Sometimes it is difficult to figure out what to share with all of you. I am very curious to know who all of you are so I know how many are really paying attention to the YAG dashboard. I hope I am not just talking to myself, but hey sometimes that is therapeutic.
My thought today is what or how much are you investing in yourself through reading?
I think this is valuable, important and healthy. Someone once told me “as you grow your personal library the more successful you become”. Think about that for a minute……………………..
How big is your library? Are you reading? Do the two correlate? I don’t know if there is any empirical evidence of this but it sounds good. Seems like every successful person you see on TV or in portraits the back drop is a grouping of shelves hosting numerous books.
So do you read on a regular basis? Are you building your library? Are you working on yourself/investing in yourself through reading?
I usually am reading several books at the same time. It seems like I have always done this by habit and the fact I do get tired of one subject so I can jump to another and read a little in each book until I finish them. Here is what I am reading right now.
“Orbiting the giant hairball” Gordon MacKenzie almost done….self improvement book
“Life, God, and other small topics” Eric Metaxax Philosophy
“The Escape” David Baldacci Novel for entertainment
“Good to Great” Jim Collins Business improvement
“New Testament” Spiritual/Philosophy
“Mindfulness for Beginners” Meditation Self improvement
“The infinite Atonement” Religious
National Geographic Informational and just fun
As you can see I am reading 8 at the same time. Many different categories. I try to read a little in each book each day.
So my questions to you:
What books are you reading?
Do you have any recommendations?
What is your favorite?
I just thought it may help motivate you to read and see what I am currently reading. Let me know your thoughts on the investment questions above.
Thanks all and please keep improving yourself………..it is the best investment.
