One of my favourite thinkers, Tom Peters, once said, “If I read a book that cost me $20 and I get one good idea, I’ve gotten one of the greatest bargains of all time.”

A great book is a great investment.

It doesn’t cost much to buy.

It costs nothing to read.

But the benefits can be huge.

Not every book will have gold in it, so you may need to keep looking, but if you are able to settle into a rhythm of reading great books by great writers every day, the lessons you will learn over the journey will have massive implications for virtually every aspect of your life.

So, go out today and buy a book.

And then, please make the time to read that book.

It could be the best investment that you’ll make this week.
