Chasing excellence means investing in you. Think of this, how many books have you read since you were in college? How many books did you read in the last year?
About 77 percent of American women read a book in 2016, 67 percent of American men read one. Also, the average woman read 14 books in a 12-month span, while the average man read only 9. About 90 percent of college grads read at least one book a year, compared to 34 percent of people who haven’t finished high school. Also, the more money they earned, the likelier they were to be readers.
If the average US male only reads 9 books a year, how far can you go if you read 10-15 books a year? I’m not writing about trashy novel–that would be like living another life. I mean self-improvement books. Something that makes you excel.
Books are only one way to invest in yourself. Podcasts, industry specific blogs and magazine articles are other great ways to expand your mind. On my YouTube channel Ted Talks are ranked very high.
The important message here is get out there and learn!
