What’s Up Young Boss! Have you ever heard the phrase Readers are Leaders? This statement reflects the importance of constantly filling your mind with new ideas to increase your opportunities of being successful in a competitive world.
Personally, I love reading because it helps me analyze my reality from the author’s point of view. Every book that I pick up is like a new friend offering wisdom to examine whatever situation I am currently experiencing, to make a better decision on how to handle it. Being able to view problems from different angles, develops your mind to be a better problem solver and the essence of every great leader is that they can solve major problems, like Elon Musk and Steve Jobs.
If you want to be successful in business, you have to learn how to play chess and not checkers. Thinking several steps ahead will give you a vantage point in making business decisions. For example, if you are on this site, in particular, you probably foresee an upcoming change in how the masses consume information and do their shopping. The more that you learn about the upcoming change, the better prepared you can be to benefit from the upcoming changes in e-commerce. This information comes from reading. Studying the past, present, and future.
At, YoungBossEconomicClub.com I will be making book recommendations that will stimulate your brain, encourage you to push beyond your limits and make wiser decisions around your health, wealth and personal relationships. The best thing about reading is that doesn’t cost that much. My favorite place to find books are thrift stores. I purchased Born To Run by Christopher McDougall for 45 cents in Baltimore and now I’m running more, in a more natural way. The ROI (Return on Investment) of this one book, will save me thousands of dollars in doctors bills. Who wants to get rich and be sick? Not Me. So, I read anything I can get my hands on to make sure that I can see what’s coming before it gets here.
