Studies show that nearly 70% of rich people set daily, monthly and annual goals. What’s more, they complete 70% of the tasks they set out for themselves daily.
According to Corley, more than 88% of rich people read at least 30 minutes a day for the purpose of self-improvement. That stands in stark contrast to just 2% of poor people.
The way I see it, reading is a big part of success because you have to sort out everything from vocabulary to context. If you’ve ever solved a mystery or figured out a plot before turning the page, for example, that’s because your mind is working on connections that, many times, are totally invisible to your conscious thought.
I find that to be a compelling idea – every page I turn adds to knowledge that can never be taken away from me.
Especially when it comes to the financial markets.
