When is the last time you sat down and read something – I mean really read something?
I don’t mean reading as in cell phone texts, a Facebook post or a tweet.
I’m talking about something with content; something with multi-syllabic words on a topic – any topic, that will get you to think, get you to wonder and get your brain off of television, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube etc.
Whether it’s a newspaper on your tablet or on your table, a book from the local library or from Amazon, you have to immerse yourself in something with content.
Why? Well, a man who is well read in a variety of subject matters can be a cool cat to have a conversation with (more on how to have a conversation in another post). Being well read keeps you aware of the world around you and the various points-of-view within that world. Simply put, reading keeps you knowledgable, social and wanting to understand more.
The people, cultures, foods, thoughts and ideas in this world are vast learn about them, read. Walking around with just one narrow viewpoint is as useless as reality TV and denies you from experiencing some excellent encounters. Read about muscle cars, building muscle, a political memoir, money making in your sleep.
Smooth gentlemen it is your mission, your duty to read and showcase that new found whatever.
