Institution Enterprises-Business Success
Would You Invest 1 Hour a Day Doing This if Top Earners Told You To?? I Dare You To Try It!!!
The Short Version:
In order to be successful you first have to know what success looks like. Find the people that you think are successful, and emulate them. In business, when we think of “business success” we typically think of people like Warren Buffett, The Zuck, Elon Musk, and Bill “God” Gates. You know what they frequently recommend as one of the keys to success? READING.
In today’s market, everyone is looking for that “life hack” or shortcut to business success, or even life success, however you define it. Problem is, even life hacks take commitment.
All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.-Warren Buffett
There are a million great life hacks and business shortcuts out there, many of which may actually help you “get that 6-pack of your dreams” or “find financial freedom” if you stick with them. But forget all the catchy headlines and click bait. Let’s get it back to basics. One of the most frequently sighted keys to success, as told by some of our era’s greatest minds, is to READ MORE.
Read more?? There’s a meme for that…
Today we are inundated by content. When I considered this message to read more, I thought to myself…”I already read allllll friggin day long…” There’s Twitter, and email subscriptions, and EMAILS, and funny ass memes…all day long it surrounds us and floods us as we stare at our phones, tablets, and laptops. I feel like I am reading non-stop, so how could reading more really be the secret key to success?
Read more better.
Um. What I mean to say is, apparently we, as in the collective of people who wish for Gatesonian levels of business and financial success, need to read more relevant and important things. When it comes to reading, it is about QUALITY AND QUANTITY. Consider this the next time you are reading something: is this content helping you educate yourself in some way? Or is it just entertaining you in some way?
Want to be like Musk? Read to improve yourself, not (just to) entertain yourself. That tip in and of itself will probably eliminate 75% of the content you look at regularly. The more you read, the more you learn. The more you learn, the more you can work smarter, not harder. Reading is a simple thing to add to your daily routine, yet many of you still won’t…
(For the record, I hope that this article is improves AND entertains you.)
I dare you. I double dog dare you.
If you want to read more about how reading is like a magic Mario mushroom for your success, there is an excellent article on the subject from Quartz Media, that you can find HERE. It has all the important citations and links and references to all kinds of people that many of us admire in the business world, expounding on how important it is to read more.
But, if you are ready to take action, and start your power-up, then take our dare: Starting right now, read 1 book a month, for a year. For some of you, that may sound easy (but you still won’t do it). Others, it may seem daunting. And maybe some of you are already doing that and more (congratu-friggin-lations nerd).
