As Tim Soulo said, “If you’re watching Netflix and not reading a book, you’ve picked the wrong book.” Let’s get started by writing down a list of books you’d like to read. Pick ones on topics you love or about which you’d like to learn more. You’re more likely to stick with a book if you want to learn about it instead of it being a book someone told you to read.

Here’s a secret. You will read more books when you choose books you’re excited to read and set a time frame in which to read them. In step 1, you chose a list of books.

Challenge yourself but be realistic. If a book a week is too much, start with a book a month, or even a book a year. Just start somewhere.
Next, you’ll want to determine how many pages you’ll need to read per day to meet your goal. Here’s a tool to help you determine that number.
