What’s More Important Than Reading.

Sure books are great and reading them can be equally as great .

To me, reading can be one of the most valuable skill anyone can develop – it’s the starting point to a whole lot of great things in life . It can be an adventure that might take one across the continents and offer him the privilege of living the good life .

The real civilization is actually the transformation of the mind by knowledge.

And books offers that priviledge to a very large extent.

But as important as that could be ,many people who read books seldom have such results in their lives .

But Why?

Truth being able to read is not enough; there is an art to it that makes it profitable an exercise.

The great investor and billionaire , Warren Buffet, was being interviewed one day; and in the course of the interview he was being asked how he processes the amount information he reads from different sources , five to six hours everyday.

And then that was how the secret came quite spontaneously:

I have a filtering system in my mind.”

That’s what’s is more important than reading- the skill of processing information and identity what is valuable.

It’s in identifying those valuable pieces and applying them in our lives that make reading profitable.

From Seneca :

My advice is really this : what we hear the philosophers saying a d what we find in their writings should be applied in the pursuit of a happy life .

We should hunt out the helpful pieces if teachings and spirited and noble-minded sayings which are capable of immediate application – not far far-fetched or archaic expression or extravagant metaphors and figures of speech – and learn them well that words become work.”

That’s what is more important than merely just reading.

And you can develop that skill.

To Your Success,
