Three Benefits From Reading A Book A Day
You’re probably too busy to read a book every single day for your entire life. Additionally, I won’t recommend doing this exercise all too often because you don’t absorb as much information as when you sit down and take your time with what you’re reading.
That said, knocking out a book a day can be a great way to give yourself a nice kick in the pants. You’re going to get a temporary knowledge boost, where you’ve got all kinds of ideas swirling around in your head, and you can use this to go out and take action.
In addition to this, you’re going to get some other cool advantages. Like the following:
1. You Become More Intelligent
The average person reads six books a year. Ask the average women what she does in her free time you’ll hear about reality TV and Instagram. Then ask the average man how his tie is spent. He’ll tell you about beer and video games.
Simply put, most people don’t read or learn anything new. If you read a book a day for two weeks, and then never picked up another book all year, you’d still be miles ahead of general population.
You can even pick up a children’s book on some complex subject, like science or math, and still learn a lot. When you don’t have a specific skill or concept you want to study, read through a broad range of topics. That’s what I did, and in a few moments you’ll see quite a few of the new things I learned.
2. You Can Make A Lot Of Money
I bought a book titled The Six-Figure Erotica Author. I liked the book and decided to follow its advice on self-publishing. Within a month I had made several hundred dollars in passive income. And shortly after that I was generating over a thousand dollars a month. All from an afternoon of reading.
When you read one book a day for two weeks, you’ll have been exposed to at least a dozen new ideas. And if you took one thing from each book and applied it to your life, you’d see major changes.
For example, I read a book that suggested writing “When you ” instead of “If you ” in your sales letters. I was a little change but something I started doing. Almost overnight I saw my earnings increase. This tiny took seconds to implement but it yielded huge results.
P.S. If you’re wondering about the science behind saying “When you ” instead of “If you ,” “When” makes you sound more confident and makes your product sound like it’s guaranteed to work. “If” comes across as more wishy-washy.
3. You Never Run Out Of Things To Say
When you read several books in a matter of days you’ll have a lot to talk about. Feel free to laugh at me, but in college I read a lot. On dates, whenever the conversation started to die down, I’d end up rattling off some trivia I read or something like that. It kept the conversation from falling into awkward silence. .
You can also use what you’ve learned to meet new people and make business connections. At the very least, you’ll end up having some interesting conversations. The next time you visit the doctor, read up on medical information beforehand. The conversation you have at your check up will be completely different from the one normal people have.
If you’re a writer, never running out of things to say gives you unlimited content to publish. I run multiple websites, two Twitter accounts, a self-publishing company, and (more recently) a newsletter. Despite this, I’m never scratching my head for things to write about.
If you read a lot you’ll never have “writer’s block.” There’s always something stewing in your brain, aching to get out and on to the page.
