Book a Month Challenge: Becoming a Better You

What would you change in your life if you could?

I've asked thousands of people that question, and here are the top 3 responses.
  1. I would like to improve my financial situation so I can _____ (move, travel, not worry, have more freedom, retire, take care of my family,...)
  2. I would like to improve my relationships.
  3. I would like to improve my health (generally lose weight).

Warren Buffett, one of the wealthiest individuals in the world, is well known for spending up to 80% of his day reading. In fact, when Warren was once asked about the key to success, he pointed to a stack of nearby books and said, “Read 500 pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.”

Will you create habits so that your knowledge will build up over time by signing up for this challenge?

Warren isn't the only one who feels reading regularly is extremely important if you are going to improve your life.  Here are some other names you might recognize that have learned the importance of this key habit of highly successful people.

You might be thinking to yourself, "Who is it that is picking the books and why should I listen to them?"  

Let me introduce you to our founder, Don Smith.  Don runs a multi-million dollar IT business, serves as a director on multiple company boards, has 5 kids, leads many community groups including leadership development groups, writes regularly on this site, and has completed 3 Tough Mudders - 12 mile muddy obstacle courses billed as some of the toughest events on the planet.

On top of all that he reads a ridiculous amount, several books a week most weeks.  This guy can read a page in about 20-30 seconds, which means he can read about 3 books in the amount of time the average American spends watching TV in a day.  He's literally read thousands if not tens of thousands of books over the last 4 decades, and credits much of his success to what he has learned from them.

Bottom line:  You are not going to find a better source for recommendations.

Successful people read!

Many people stop reading after getting out of school.  They think their education is complete.  And you know what happens?  They get passed by as their peers continue learning! 

It's a competitive world out there!  Are you giving yourself the edge?  Or are you falling further and further behind?


Graduation - the beginning, not the end of education.
Did you think this was the end of your education?  Successful people see this as the beginning...

5 Levels of Leadership

Our first book is The 5 Levels of Leadership:  Proven Steps to Maximize Your Potential by John C. Maxwell.  This is a core book that should be considered required reading for everyone.  Whether you've just been granted a promotion, think you may want to lead at some point in your life, want to improve your relationships with others, or have been leading for a long time, you will get a lot out of this one.  Remember leading doesn't just mean leading at work, it can be leading in your own home!
