For most of my life, I didn’t read much. I always thought that being committed to reading meant spending a ton of time per day doing it. It wasn’t until I did 75 Hard for the first time that I learned that reading just ten pages per day can have a huge impact.
The image of the report shows (arrow) when I decided to commit to reading. I remember the first book I read, so I went to Amazon and found the exact date I bought the book, then went to shopify and ran a report to see a visual of how my business changed from that point.
It was a massive eye opener. You can see that when I started reading was pretty much the exact point my business really started growing. Machine was mainly a fun side thing for the first few years, but the arrow is the time I made the decision to really get serious.
Reading and implementing lessons from the books has improved every aspect of my life, but the growth of my business is easy to measure and see from a report. The amount of knowledge you can get from reading ten pages per day is crazy.
If you’re not doing it, now is a great time to start.
