HOW TO CHOSE A BOOK TO READ ( NO BS,ONLY VALUE :) )
Hmmm…… I get it. So you find it difficult to chose a book to read , isn’t it? Who doesn’t get confused?Everyone gets puzzled to decide about their TBR’s( To Be Read )…,so my pal take some time and continue to read….
I will be sharing how I chose books, which is simple and easy.
CHOOSY BOOKS THEORY
Have you read about this concept, I had derived out of some experience and some fancy wording, its called Choosy books theory , which means that your goals and age determine what kind of books you should and shouldn’t be reading.
Lets say Avantika, 18 year old girl studying MBBS wants to start reading books. Well what kind of books she can read?
Answer is , she can read books of any genre or topic. But also it depends on her goals as well, isn’t it?
What can be the goals of Avantika, may be self improvement or learning communication skills. No wonder she must read books of self improvement genre..
Now lets say Adrian,a 25 year old salesman, wants to invest in real estate, so what kind of books he should read?
Ofcorse, books on real estate written by real estate legends like Grant Cardone or Donald Trump, not those fiction books.
Well I have seem many Adrians who read books of every genre but real estate and business, I was one of those Adrians, What about you?
THE CRUX: CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS + MIX IT A BIT
It sounds so easy to read books which we must read, but we lose to our emotions and waste our time by readingnon-essential books,isn’t it?
So to save time , always ask these questions to yourself:
1. What knowldege will I get from this book?
2. Isthis knowledge useful to solve my problem?
When the answer is NO, 99 times out of 100,dont read the book. Period.
I can understand your temptation to read those awesome books, but sadly they won’t help you a lot , Some studies have shown that reading books of other genres increases creativity , so you can read some books other than the essential ones.
Ask yourself: “Is the book that I am reading , is it useful for me, Is it really worth to spend my time reading it?
Can I get the same information from some mentor or a YouTube video?
And if the answer is No , don’t read the book, read this book only when you wanna read some books of different genre, it boost creativity and ideas.
So crux is to lopside your attention to must read genres, and some to others others as well.
