I’d never thought that I would do this – if I told myself about my this challenge only a year or two ago, I would scoff at it saying that it would get me nowhere if I tried. In fact, if my old friends hear of this they would think that I had:
- Lost my mind
- Been kidnapped and someone else is using my name
- Been kidnapped by aliens and reprogrammed
- This world is coming to an end
- I’ve faked my death and …
Yes, college boys fed on a healthy diet of anime, pizza and energy drinks tend to come up with a plethora of very plausible ideas.
Anyways I digress
Ever since I entered the MBA program at the University of California, Riverside, reading had become an integral part of my life but this wasn’t always so. With a BS in mathematics and all my electives in Computer Science – reading was not something I did often. I wasn’t a big fan of novels or comics either so, I sometimes went months without ever touching a book.
It was very difficult to read vast quantities of text for courses such as organization behavior so I made it a goal for myself to read. At first it was any chance I got, a book or article every few weeks – then it become a book or article every few days.
If you haven’t guessed, I’m a guy that loves a challenge and the feeling of self improvement – so for 2018 my resolution is to read 1 book a day in areas such as Business, Finance, Economics, etc.
Please follow in my journey as I take a look at the world of business literature throughout 2018!
