I found reading as a habit back in early 2013, when I was lost in my office. Depression and boredom knocked me hard in the head back then. I didn’t know what to do with my job, and my life.
So I read. I found some good books to read. And suddenly realize that the more I read, the more I know. It not only improves my life, but gets my work a lot better. But what helps me the most is reading has turned into my hobby. I love reading. And reading has become a part of me. I try to read at least some pages everyday. I try to become smarter every day I wake up. In the past year, I read nearly 60 books. It’s not a good number compared with a lot of smart and successful men out there. But at least, I know much more than all my younger years.
In fact, reading does make you smarter. Both Warren Buffet, and Charlies Munger all agree that reading makes you smarter.
It’s always in my blood to become better for everyday I live. I honor Theodore Roosevelt words ““For us is the life of action, of strenuous performance of duty; let us live in the harness, striving mightily; let us rather run the risk of wearing out than rusting out.”
No matter what happens, I strive to be better. That’s why I want to start my reading list here to track what books I have read, and to know that I’m better everyday. Here it goes.
