Read at least 5 hours per week to keep learning
“In my whole life, I have known no wise people (over a broad subject matter area) who didn’t read all the time – none. Zero.”
– Charlie Munger, Self-made billionaire & Warren Buffett’s longtime business partner
I found this article today and I agreed with a lot of the things I read. Since this is a website dedicated to reading and learning, I thought that the conclusion they reach is quite close to The CEO Library’s reason for being: knowledge is becoming increasingly valuable. In the end, this isn’t the reason you should read the article, but the fact that they make a really compelling argument for reading and getting more knowledge (and getting more knowledgeable).
The writer also gives you a list of essential skills to master in the knowledge economy we’re approaching, so it’s something you can apply once you finish reading the article.
The answer is simple: Learning is the single best investment of our time that we can make. Or as Benjamin Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
I’ve found this article through the daily emails I get from Deepstash, the company some friends started a while ago. You should also check them out.
