The case against reading

I literally have stacks of books all over my home and office.

Seriously, stacks that, if you were to see them, you’d be afraid that they were going to topple over any second.

I’ve bought alot of stuff from Amazon over the last few years.

See, what will happen is that I will get on a particular subject and buy a handful of books on it.

Then after a bit, I’ll move on to a new topic.

And buy a handful of books on that.

And so it goes.

I love to read.

Buy here’s the thing…

There’s a danger there.

A danger in thinking that it’s enought to just read stuff.

That the knowledge in your head is actually worth something on its own.


It’s not.

The books are no good unless you take something you learned and actually do something about it.

At worst, reading endless books can be a form of procrastination.

Feeling like, if you just read one more book you’ll have what you need to get started.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way.

Some people say you should find the ten best books (less if you tend to procrastinate) and just read them ten times.

This is in contrast to buying 100 books and reading them once.

Don’t let books be your excuse for not taking action.

Talk soon,
