Read 100 Books About What You Do

There’s a saying that if you haven’t read hundreds of books about what you do, you are functionally illiterate.

Take for example a military general. A great military general can’t just learn through trial and error. The stakes are too high. One mistake may cost thousands of people’s lives.

Thankfully, most of us don’t have jobs where other lives are at stake, but the point still stands.

The problems you face aren’t unique to you, there have been hundreds, probably thousands of people that have faced similar problems in the past, and succeeded. And you owe it to yourself to learn from those that came before you.
