The most successful people in the world have one thing in common: They read.

Warren Buffet summarizes the value of reading perfectly: “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.”

My 2019 intention is stay consistent with reading and make it a daily ritual. So I took on the Goodreads Reading Challenge and set a goal of reading a book a week.  I started my list of books in the following areas:

  • Culture & History: I read a lot of this genre of books already and they help enhance my journey with social and political context on the places I travel to.
  • Personal Growth & Psychology: The discovery of how our minds work and sharing of information has exploded in the last decade.
  • Business: I used to read these all the time when I worked in corporate - to both survive and thrive. I want to get back to reading these at least once a month
  • Health & Fitness: Let’s face it, with a healthy diet and healthy body… life is just easier. The learning is endless as we understand our body and what works for you.
  • Classics: I am throwing in a few classics as they are always a good read or re-read.

Follow along and get inspired to read with weekly posts below.

Meditations – the personal journal of the great Roman emperor filled with Stoic philosophy and advice relevant even today.

What is most striking about the book is how relative to today it is, showing that people’s struggles really are similar regardless of nationality (which I find often as I travel) or century (as these writing are almost 2000 years old).
