Here’s a statistic you’ve probably heard before: the average CEO reads 60 books a year.
I know it, right?
When I heard that my first thought was, “Where do they find the time to work? Or golf? Or take their weekly bath in solid-gold coins?”
In contrast, the median number of books read by Americans every year is four books.
Ten years ago, if I had read four books within the last four years, I would have felt downright scholarly. Between work, errands, chores, and my social life, I thought I had no time to give to reading. When I tried, I got bored or fell asleep. Stacks of books piled up on my shelves unread.
Then, everything changed. I set off on a journey of personal growth and learning that turned my life 180 degrees in the right direction.
Now, 60 books is a light reading year for me. If you have dreamed of expanding your horizons through the power of reading, you can accomplish the same thing!
