When I first started this online book club, my goal was never to get more people to read more books. Quantity was never the goal here. What has been the goal, however, is quality.
If you’ve been a part of this book club for awhile now, then you know that this blog is about the best ideas from the books I read. These are ideas that have positively changed my life. These are ideas I want to see spread.
Unfortunately, however, the problem with focusing on quantity in relation to books is that when you read books just to say you’ve read them, you miss out on all the great ideas that are in them.
Because of this, it’s important that you stop looking at books as something you only read once. Instead, what you have to do is read them over and over again so that the ideas and information in those books get retained in your brain.
This is why I have 50 different books that I’ve read that I choose to re-read constantly and that I recommend to people. (If you’re curious, you can check out my list of my top 50 recommended books here.) But it’s been these 50 books and the information inside them that have laid the foundation for my life when it comes to achieving health, love, wealth, and everything in between.
Reading is one of the greatest habits you can build in your life, but don’t go into this process thinking you’ll read a book, move on, and never read it again.
Think of these books as your trusted advisors that you keep coming back to over and over again when you need advice and, as a by product, continuously learn in the process.
