Do reading challenges REALLY help us to read more?
Each year I set some kind of reading challenge on goodreads app. I wonder if this help me to:
- read more books
- read more in general
- read shorter books so that we'll read more books
- read "lighter" books so that we'll read faster and more books in the end
I wonder if reading challenge does not "discriminate" longer or more difficult books when quantity is more important than quality (kinda) here.
Or maybe urgency and challenging factors do not work in such activity as reading? Maybe it's still the activity where are no winners no matter how much you read?
I think this is more likely :)
Recommended Business Youtube Channels that I watch regularly:
Top in the list is VALUETAINMENT by Patrick Bet David. A great diversified content on capitalism. Love it.
2. Kevin O leary - The Mr Wonderful ofcourse 😅 A Nasty Shark from the Shark Tank USA BUT very insightful Business knowledge.
3. Graham Stephan - A Young Millionaire who talks about real estate & other investments in general. He shares some serious experiences of his investments and returns. Crazy Thumbnails 😂
4. Brian Tracy - What a great sales & marketing teacher. A complete business course package absolutely Free on Youtube. You get some real good tips on sales & marketing.
5. The Rich Dad Channel by Robert Kiyosaki - All about making money. Real Estate Investment and tips on asset protection and legit tax saving. Great insights for Millenials. He is going hard on sharing financial education which our standard education system doesn't provide.
Here you go, those were some of my recommendations. Who do YOU listen to? Share with me 😁
I dont read books, I watch!
Talk less, listen more. And you will start noticing things you ignored.
Listening is a skill. And as with any skill, it degrades if you don’t do it enough. Some people may have stronger natural ability while others may have to work harder, but each of us can become a better listener with practice. The more people you listen to, the more aspects of humanity you will recognize, and the better your instincts will be. Listening well can help you understand other people’s attitudes and motivations, which is essential in building cooperative and productive relationships, as well as discerning which relationships you’d be better off avoiding.
Nice read by Kate Murphy, the author of “You’re Not Listening: What You’re Missing and Why It Matters.”
