Long time no read! I’ve been learning new stuff, time to write something.
We cannot spend our entire lives reading books. The amount of books available to us is in the millions and is just a couple of clicks away. I have purchased more than 30 books in the last few weeks, and the queue keeps growing faster than me finishing them.
The reason for my indulgent purchasing of such books is that the investment is very low (mostly 99 cents). Also, I need to be clear that I don’t buy everything that comes to my attention, otherwise the quantity would be in the thousands. I just buy what I think is relevant to my goals, as well as selecting those recommended on podcasts, blogs and other books. This creates a constant flow of knowledge that helps me to be in “beta” mode.
Finding good books sometimes is difficult, but at least today the price is not prohibitive. Some books offered in digital format even let you peak at their first pages, so you can have an idea if it will provide value to you.
The question is not if there are good books, or if they are cheap or expensive.
The question is: do you have an insatiable need to know more?
I took that bit from the book The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It, by Michael E. Gerber.
Been hungry for knowledge will create questions that will lead us to get the answers. And by doing so, we’ll discover how ignorant we are.
Let’s keep learning together!
