My wife, Anna, is a voracious reader. She’s also the smartest woman I know.
I don’t think those attributes are unrelated. She’s smart because she reads and she reads because she’s smart.
I’ve not always been so smart. Up until about five years ago, reading was a luxury for me. Something I did on vacation…maybe. “I’ll wait for the movie,” was my response to most book recommendations.
But somewhere along the way something changed and so did I. I developed a habit of intentional reading.
In this week’s episode of the Reinventure Me podcast, my co-host Armin Assadi and I talk about that most basic of skills that we often neglect: reading.
Our latest episode, How reading can lead to your next great beginning explores the hidden benefits of reading. I hope you’ll find it inspiring to pick up that book you’ve been meaning to get to. Go ahead, give our show a listen on the web or in iTunes or on Stitcher Radio and let me know what you think.
What are some of the benefits you’ve found in reading regularly?
