Last week I decided to read 7 books in 7 days. And I did it. It was a good experience. I prepared myself a week in advance. I knew it would require a lot of time (typically it takes 3-8 hours to read a book). So, I did a few adjustments to my daily routine. I cut down on my meetings which could be postponed and I scheduled only the most important works on my list for the week. I selected different genres of book to keep it interesting.
List of books I read
Monday, 6th Nov’17 – Marketing 101 – (Author – Don Sexton)
Tuesday, 7th Nov’17– Geeks & Geezers (Author – Warren Bennis & Robert J Thomas)
Wednesday, 8th Nov’17– Walden (Author – Henry David Thoreau)
Thursday, 9th Nov’17 – The Go-Giver (Author – Bob Burg & John David Mann)
Friday, 10th Nov’17– The Daily Drucker (Author – Peter F. Drucker)
Saturday, 11th Nov’17– Switch (Author – Chip Heath & Dan Heath)
Sunday, 12th Nov’17– Superhuman by Habits (Author – Tynan)
What did I learn from this exercise?
The week is over and the challenge is over. It’s Monday and I am taking a break for a day from reading.
What are the things you always wanted to do? What’s stopping you? Take a week off and do it now. I promise you, the world is not going to change in 7 days.
