Read a Book

Read a Book! Or Two.

I started running. Again.

But unlike previous (failed) attempts, this time, I want to do it right. This time, I intend to learn. That’s why I recently read The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg. Instead of just going for a run whenever I feel in the mood (which is almost never), I wanted to understand how to really make running part of my daily habits. Thanks to the book, I understand what to do now. My next challenge is to look for inspiration on why to keep running, which is the reason I’m reading Eat and Run. The next book on my list is the brilliantly titled Never Wipe Your Ass with a Squirrel.

The results so far? I ran this morning. I ran the morning before. I ran the morning before that.

And everything hurts!

So far, so good.

I always have the same approach to learning. When I wanted to know how to grow a successful weekly newsletter (almost 5,000 subscribers) I read two books on email marketing. When I wanted to learn how to become a self-publisher, I read five books on self-publishing. Influence marketing? Eight books!

Sometimes people ask me, “How can we start doing X?” or “How should we keep doing Y?” or “What does it take to become Z?”

Easy.

Read a book!

Or two.
Or five.

When you’re as crazy as I am, read eight.
