Today’s audio diary is called Leaders Are Readers.

Do you know that the average person reads one book a year? Can you believe that? Now, I have said this many times, that I’m a voracious reader. I love to read: I read marketing, I read business, I read self-help, I read fiction…I love to read!

And you know there is a direct correlation between reading and leaders – that great leaders read. And that great leaders read at least three books a month. So imagine the average person reading one book a year, the great leaders reading on average three books a month – they’re soaking up that knowledge. Look at that huge knowledge difference!

You need to read in order to lead your family, lead your business, lead in your community. Whatever it is you’re doing, please start reading today. Schedule time to do it. Even if you only read half hour a day, that will get you going. So schedule a half hour instead of watching that extra game show or any show at night. Just read for thirty minutes, set your timer. You will notice a huge difference in how you’re leading.
