One of my projects is to read more non-fiction books. I heard that reading three books about a topic makes you an expert on that topic… Of course, this is probably just one of those motivational metaphors to encourage you to read. But I do believe that reading a really good, reliable and well-sourced book will provide you with valuable information that others may not know. The most successful entrepreneurs, such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and Elon Musk have all highlighted the power of reading good books.
There is so much to learn about this world. Fortunately, there are so many sources out there that we can learn from- books being the most in-depth. For now, my focus is reading about general non-fiction books. I have learned a lot from the books on this list, and I cannot emphasise how much they have changed my way of thinking. There is still more to come!
Remember… in order to get the most out of reading, it is not enough to just read it. It is just as important- if not more- to actually comprehend, evaluate, and implement the things you read.
