Entrepreneurial leaders are readers.
The most important reason to read books is to multiply your experiences.
Without reading, your expertise will be limited to your direct experiences.
Growing and leading a startup is a skill that takes years to master and we still can only experience a limited amount of situations.
But there is a solution.
Through reading, we can learn from the experiences of unlimited numbers of entrepreneurs and business leaders.
We might not be able to have personal discussions with Eric Ries, John C. Maxwell, Peter Thiel, Steven R. Covey, or Zig Ziglar.
But by reading their books, it is almost like spending time with them and listening to their ideas and thoughts.
The more you read, the more information and ideas you will have available during decision making.
Reading books accelerated my personal and professional development and you can equally benefit from reading.
Whatever you want to accomplish, reading gets you there faster.
Pick up a good book and block a few minutes per day to read a couple of pages.
It will culminate to approximately one book per month.
Just make sure to be consistent and sooner or later, you might need a new bookshelf.
