How do you read one book a week?
Leaders are readers.
The challenge is the average person reads about two books a year.
But the average CEO reads about four to six books a month.
So how do you get this point where you are getting to one book a week.
One of the reasons why I am so excited about reading is
because somebody has decades of experience,
and put it into a book. And you could sit down and dare to read that book,
you can download decades of knowledge in days.
Right, you have such a huge manage.
So how do you read one book a week without speed reading?
Here is the secret. Look at the numbers
Right. When I went on Amazon and find out
the medium numbers words per books about 64,000 words.
And average person, like we teachspeed reading all around the world
in one hundred fifteen different countries on line,
the average person reads about 200 words per minute.
So now when you divide 64,000 words per book by 200 words a minute,
comes up to be about 320 minutes.
320 minutes to get through a book of 64000 words
But how many words that a day?
Divide by 7, you get about 45 minutes a day.
45 minutes reading a day and you get through 1 book a week.
That is much more manageable.
But here is the secret. Did you have schedule it. You must schedule this time.
Because you see all most read here and there never really happens.
Because small of dreams are so interested.
When you schedule it, it is in your appointment book, it is in your calendar
it is time for you and time you have to with your boss,
or investors, somebody …… a family member, somebody that’s so important.
Did you never cancel on that? Because you reading is a form of selfcare.
I believe that self love and self care is not selfish.
So you want to be a life long learner, schedule it 45 minutes a day.
Now if you happened be a faster reader, you can do it maybe 30 minutes,
or maybe 15 minutes. Does take it as much as you think.
And one more important point, when you schedule your reading time,
make sure you schedule it around a time when you are awake.
Right. Most of people use reading as a sedative late at night
and have the association of something to put them to sleep
Not such time you want to to be do it when you awake, when you alerts,
schedule it, 45 minutes a day.
每天坚持就能完成任务 记住 领袖都擅阅读
and you get the job done. So remember Leaders are readers.
If knowledge is power. Reading is your superpower.
