Here we are to Day 17 of the Financial Freedom Challenge 🙂 Congratulations on arriving here! I understand that these first days may have been challenging for you. This is why I decided to include a day a little lighter. Today we’ll talk about the importance of reading at least 25 pages per day. So take 5 minutes to read this post and let’s start!
What’s today’s task?
As I said before today’s task is not a daily goal. Actually, it is rather a lifelong commitment. In theory, it’s very simple: you must commit to read at least 25 pages per day.
Reading 25 pages a day takes a very little time, trust me. By doing so you will achieve incredible results!
You can really change your life with this pace. You have many options: choose the best one for you and incorporate it into your daily routine.
- Wake up 15 minutes before and read
- Read during breakfast
- If you’re a daily commuter read while traveling (bus, metro..)
- Read during launch or right after it
- Read in the evening or before going to sleep
You will realize that 25 pages per day is a very low number, but can make a huge difference in the long term.
Just to be clear, I’m not talking about reading only financial books. Read what you really like and you will realize that it is a very easy (but very important) goal to achieve. Obviously, my suggestion is to read also financial books (at least 5 per year), as I wrote some days ago.
In alternative, you can also decide to listen to audiobooks if you prefer. Amazon offers 1 free month for Amazon Kindle Unlimited if you register from this link. You will have more than 1 million books to choose from. After the first month, the price is 9.99 EUR per month. I really suggest you to try out this awesome product. You have 1 month to decide if you like it or not. In the second case, you can cancel your subscription for free.
A brief summary of today’s task of the Financial Freedom Challenge
- Understand the importance of reading (or listening to audiobooks)
- Read the list above and choose the option that best fits in your daily routine
- Include it in your daily routine and make it a habit
Actually, this is year I’m not reading as much as I would like to. At the moment I’m reading my tenth book of 2019 for a total of 3751 pages (average of 13 pages per day). Very low pace. I really need to work on this aspect.
These are the books I read in 2019:
- Nudge. La spinta gentile (Eng version)
- Il Generale
- Abaddon’s Gate (The Expanse series)
- The Little Big Things: 163 Ways to Pursue Excellence
- Zero to One: Notes on StartUps, or How to Build the Future
- The Power of Now
- Cibola Burn (The Expanse series)
- Nemesis Games (The Expanse series)
This was Day 17 of the Financial Freedom Challenge. As you surely know I strongly believe in the importance of reading. This is why I always suggest you to do it, sorry if I’m repetitive. If you have any questions about this challenge, write a comment and I’ll be glad to answer you 🙂
Besides share in the comments your opinion about this step. Do you already have a reading routine? Do you think (as I do) that reading is important?
Come back tomorrow for Day 18. I’ll be here for you! Remember to follow us on Facebook and Instagram!
