I get to read a lot of books, I’m also fortunate to be part of a book club where we review business books.
But reading a book and doing what the book says are two different things.
The logic with reading a book is that when you know better you do better.
Warren Buffett says his life changed after reading The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham.
Thinking we have learned or even understood something because we read a book is like thinking we can play professional tennis because we saw Rafa Nadal play.
Learning follows absorption, synthesis, and action.
We only learn something when it becomes part of how we operate.
In entrepreneurship, reading a book is great, but not enough, we must also attempt to implement what we read.
Read more, and do more, that’s how we grow to be better entrepreneurs and leaders.
