Importance of Reading to Our Growth:  It Worked for Alexander the Great

I came across this article this morning.  I agree with every point in the article.

Reading is a very important part of my life.  Reading helps me grow, dream and develop.  I rarely just read, I study.

I chose topics that I want to learn more about, or that can help me accomplish something.  I spend time gathering the books I need for my study, note paper and map out a plan to dig into the information.

I guess thats either cool or crazy?  Whatever it is, its me.

Below is a link to the article.  I hope you will check it out.  This article helps justify my obsession with reading, my need to carry around a “go bag” with books and journals and my thirst to be alone with a book.

Alexander the Great would actually carry books with him during his conquests.

History says all of the great philosophers, thinkers, and innovators of our time from Plato and Aristotle to Bill Gates and Warren Buffet were readers, writers, and thinkers.  Geoff Pilkington
