In conversations with the most successful, it is easy to notice that in addition to a courageous personality, most of these people also have a very special affection for books.
It is already a cliché expression but it is still the reality; We live in the information age.
As a result, knowledge is one of the most precious assets of our time. So, becoming familiar with a few pages of books every day is essential.
“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” ― Groucho Marx
No one is born already having the habit of reading. It is a habit that is cultivated until it becomes really difficult to go days without going through some pages of a book.
If it is something learned, it means that you can also acquire it.
In the following steps, we will show you simple steps how you can also become an avid reader:
1. Make the decision to develop the habit.
This means that you should be aware that a portion of your time will have to be devoted to reading everyday, and you should be mentally prepared for the discomfort of the first few pages.
2. Find the right book for you.
As mentioned in the article “The Ideal Book For You,” the ideal book is the one in which you identify yourself with, as it portrays themes of your interest.
3. Focus on consistency, and not on the number of pages read.
Even if you read only one page a day, you will read much more than someone who reads 50 pages and then ends up months without opening a book at all.
4. Develop a reading routine.
Keep in mind an exact number of pages to read every day, and preferably be consistent in time and place of reading.
5. Share every learned lesson with the people who are close to you.
The best way to revise what we have learned, is to share each lesson with those close to us.
