“Reading a good book is like taking a journey.” Emma Gulliford
If you read 100 -150 books in a year and it will change your life. I read typically 100 books a year and plan on 150 this year, which is a stretch goal for sure. Include a mix of topics, genres and if you are a non-fiction only reader consider deep diving into a novel and you might be surprised.
A big thanks to my Mom for instilling the power of books into my life from an early age. I remember vividly all the trips to the library and then to the bookstores when shopping malls were the rage. Spending hours in Dalton, Walden, Borders and a host of small independent bookstores were memories that will not be forgotten. An ongoing joke between my Greek wife (Jan) and me is this: I went to bookstores/libraries as a child and Jan went to grocery stores and farmers markets!
As the year of 2016 comes to a close and you are perhaps doing a bit of self- reflecting, ask yourself: did you DARE yourself with action or just dream about it? I wonder how many new entrepreneurs started to launch their ideas into a real business with sales as I wrote about December, 2015.
