Successful People Read
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.”
