You can’t afford not to read this.

I don’t care what industry you are in, if you want to be at the top mountain some day, you need to read books.  You may be an architect, fast food worker, business person, law enforcement officer, homemaker or civil servant during the day but you still need to read professional books to better yourself.

I read books in spurts.  I try for two a month at least.   When I do read books, I get lost in the book for a day or two.  Which makes me wonder why I don’t read more often?  I routinely read online articles and news quite a bit each day too to feed my trivia addiction.

It's good for your brain

Some poor reason you’re not reading *with rebuttals.

  1. I’ll miss my TV shows.  *Rebuttal; I have a DVR. Or skip it.
  2. I may miss a status update on facebook or a tweet.  *Rebuttal; Did you seriously just write that!
  3. I need to spend more time with my family.  *Rebuttal(s); The kids go to bed hours before you do.  A smarter well read Dad/Spouse/Mother/Partner is a better person.
  4. It takes so much time.  *Rebuttal; Being uninformed takes even more time or rather lack effort.  Lack of effort on your part is something you can fix very easily.

Those are just a few reasons to pull a book of the shelf, go to the library, go to your brick and mortar book store (while they still exist), or download a book on your Kindle or Nook today.

The books you read will help shape your future.  Read for fun and read for personal and professional growth.  You can’t afford not to.

Start with one book a month and build on that.  And I’ll work on a reading list and post it on the blog soon too.
