Today a reader, tomorrow a leader

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
― George R.R. Martin

Wouldn’t it be fascinating to live several lives within one lifetime?
But, the question is how do you do that? Simply pick up a book, cosy up and start reading.

If you look at all the successful people in the world, you would notice one common pattern. They have all lived several lives within their lifetime and gathered information and knowledge which they applied in their real lives to become who they are today. Warren Buffet was once asked about the key to success, he pointed out 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.” And he isn’t alone, there are many top business leaders and entrepreneurs who have made reading a major part of their daily lives.

These tech giants, media moguls and successful people believe that books are a gateway to learning and knowledge. Even though some of them dropped out of college but they never stopped learning. Books helped them filled the void and turned them into an individual that they are today.
