I love living in the 21st Century. Because of the internet, we have access to more information — and coffee beans — than ever before! With a few clicks or a voice command, I can search the haystack and find the needle.
As access to information has increased, so has the amount of information itself. Granted, not all information is equal and you’ll wade through a lot of discarded junk to find the right needle. Even still, what a tremendous blessing to have so much information at our fingertips.
While we have blogs, news sites, tweets, updates, and Instagram stories, I remain a big fan of plain, old-fashioned books. Whether they are on a screen or paper (though you should look into the benefits of reading paper books – just Google it!), books are the best way to grapple with tough issues, develop deep thinking skills, and become better equipped as a person and leader.
Simply put, one of the best goals you could set for 2020 – or any year – is to read more. Read inside your field and outside. Read your favorite authors and discover new ones. Read fiction and non-fiction, history and contemporary issues. Try binge reading instead of binging Netflix.
With dedicated time each day, you’ll be surprised at how many books you can read over the course of twelve months. Even better, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much you’ve learned, grown, and changed.
