My reading list

“The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7.

The greatest asset you can possess is knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. A wise person can never lack what to eat. A wise person knows how to utilize the opportunities and resources before them. A wise person can solve problems and overcome obstacles in their path. It’s for this reason that I am always on a constant search for new ideas to improve my life. To this end, I have read over 300 books in the last three years. The strategy I adopted involved building a reading habit on my commute to and from work. I spend about 3 to 4 hours daily commuting. So instead of listening to the radio, I listen to audiobooks. I have also invested in a number of reading apps like kindle, blinkist, and anybooks. I usually arrive at work at 6.30am so I use the time from 6.30am to 8.00am to catch up on my reading. Most of the articles and content I have shared have been inspired by these books. The reading habit is a very powerful habit and will catapult you quickly above the average person.
