You know what’s crazy?
I’ve made it this far on my journey without reading a single book.
Yes – I didn’t realize what I was missing out on until l the last month of 2018.
Here’s an earth-shattering revelation:
People have condensed years of experience and lessons into something you can read in a week!
So if you were hiding under a rock like me… It’s time to get your ass to a library and pick up something to read.
Make this a habit and you’ll be surprised just how fast it can change your life!
Why didn’t I start sooner?
Well, I suppose it was a combination of laziness, naivety, and simply not knowing what to pick up first.
But at least the ball is rolling now! *kicks*
In all honesty, if I could go back and say one thing to my 16 year old self, it would probably be:
“Emma, you don’t have to always do things the hard way by hands on experience and trial and error. Reading, participating in communities and even reaching out to others is an great way to broaden your horizons.”
Unfortunately, I don’t have access to a time machine (yet)
So that’s why I’ve made it a personal goal to finish at least one book per month from here on out!
And I think that you should too.
