Books aren’t trophies.

The trophies come from making use of the knowledge contained within the books.

Nobody cares how many books we’ve read this week, this month, or this year.

What truly matters is what we’re doing with the information we’re consuming.

To that end, consider what is more important to you: finishing a book or acting on the “a-ha” moment and making progress in some area of life?

What are we chasing: making progress or looking like we’re making progress?

If we’re reading these books for development in some form, we must implement the wisdom shared with us in order to actually realize the benefit. When we encounter these nugget we’re looking for, put the book down and take action.
