The year 2023 has begun with a blast and you may be wondering how you can develop a consistent reading habit throughout the year.
Here are five major ways to do that without stress.
Don’t aim for voluminous books at the beginning. Start by reading smaller ones. A 40- or 73-paged book can contain as much knowledge as a 200-paged book. Ironic but true.
2. Start With Books That Interests You
In The Almanac of Naval Ravikant, Naval advises people to read books they love. It’s easier to develop a reading habit when you look forward to what you’ll be reading.
3. Set Reading Goals
Goals are very powerful. They help us harness our potential. A reading goal can be as simple as this: “I will read five pages of The Almanac of Naval Ravikant by 6:45am every day.”
Setting small reading goals can boost our confidence at first, because we get to see results. By the time you read five pages of a book for seven days straight, you’ll have almost completed a small book like Who Moved My Cheese.
4. Have An Accountability Partner
Having someone whom you can share your progress and wins with will inspire you to keep reading, especially on the days when you don’t feel like it.
Your accountability partner should be someone who is serious about your growth and who is already a consistent reader. This way, their progress will inspire you to read more.
5. Join A Book Club
Book clubs are an awesome way to read consistently and outside your usual scope of books. Books clubs solve multiple problems.
First, they solve the issue of what book to read. Next, they keep you accountable. Then, they give you the opportunity to bond with others while sharing your perspectives and highlights from books.
