Education is limited, and knowledge is limitless!
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The man who never reads lives only one.” – George R.R. Martin
To keep evolving,
to learn new things,
to expand your current knowledge base,
to develop in different unknown sectors,
Reading is the answer.
Books/ Case Studies/ Articles/ Blogs all come under reading, wherever you get to learn something valuable.
From all the advantages of reading, here are a few that I’ve noticed:
1. Increases concentration and productivity
2. Enhances creativity
3. Changes your perspective
4. Learning new things (that’s obvious though)
5. Developing your knowledge base
“Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary.” – Jim Rohn
Over the past few months, the books I’ve read, the lessons I’ve learned, the path I’ve walked on led me to re-read this book – The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
I did read this book years ago, surely didn’t remember most of it and don’t recall what I understood of it back then, but some impact must have surely happened – for that journey led me to this point.
I’m glad I chose this book, strengthened a few points I needed some guidance on and baselined a lot of content with the books I’ve read before.
This book in quotes, “is an inspiration for anyone seeking their path in life.”
It couldn’t be put in better words, the book is focused on finding your purpose, knowing your true calling in life.
The journey you set upon to achieve that purpose, the hardships faced, the knowledge gained, the experiences and overall, an upgrade in yourself.
You’re truly happy when you’re in the process of walking on the path of your true calling – is how I’ll sum up my learnings of this book.
Will surely recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a book in this category!
I recently read this book titled, ‘Start with Why’ by Simon Sinek and I have to say it’s one of the best books I’ve read, from the few I’ve read in my life. Quite an eye-opener!
The book is business based, and speaks about why you start a business, why it’s important and the implications if you don’t have a reason behind it. (I guess if I’ve to explain the book in short, this is how I’d do it)
However, I also feel, above all the business reasons, it helps personally too – makes you think about the purpose of your life too and why you do what you do!
