Read, Lead, Succeed


It may seem cliche, but reading for 20 minutes a day can put most students on a path to improvement; reading for 45 minutes a day can often help most students overcome problems in several other related areas.

 

  • If you don't like to read fiction, consider a biography, autobiography, historical events, memoirs, travel books, etc.

  • Consider joining a book club to keep you motivated to keep reading.

  • Read the book that was later made into a movie (there's over 1400 to choose from)

  • Consider graphic novels as a option

  •  Pick a genre that you really like: mystery, science fiction, romance, horror.

  • Get books in digital format so you can have them on your smart device to read anywhere at anytime (plus, you can click on words to get the definitions too)

  • Audiobooks are great for situations when it's not convenient or possible to read.

  • Stop reading a book if you don't like it and find one you do like.
