Reading a Book a Week is Changing My Life



Around, around new years I´m still in pretty really lost in this year, and, I felt like while I had learned really a lot academically, as a person I hadn't really learned a lot. I was still the same person that I wasn't pursuing any passion as in growing. I was just kind of, you know, being me, and reacting to the world around me. And I was not happy with this So I made a video about that and then I also decided there's a new year's resolution that I was gonna reading 52 books in 2018. One book every week. And I'm about twenty books in and I'm gonna be real it's changing my life. When I was a kid I was a big book worm, I read books all the time. You know, Harry Potter, Series of Unfortunate Events, Enders game that whole series, I just I love them, and I can thank my mom for that because she is a published author and, you know, this lasted pretty much my entire elementary school career and all of a sudden I fell out of love. Its not anything that changed in, me but I kind of blame the school system for this. okay ! and here is why : so the problem with the way reading is approached in school is that it associates a reward with the act of reading. that is, if you read a book, then you do well on your presentation or on your test or on your essay. It turns it into a transaction. so now when you take away that reward of grades, well, you are doing what feels like work! ugh, because previously you exchanged it for a reward, but now there is NO reward. So when it comes to choosing between, yOu KnOw, reading or going your phone or something else that is pleasurable you are gonna choose going or your phone or doing something else. because reading is a chore. It's work. There is no reward for that work, so when I Started of reading a book every week, it was tough, it felt like a chore with no reward, duh, because that how i've been trained by school. so i defined two issue is one motivation which the fix honest doesn't matter the time i just have to read a few books before i started to think ,hey this is very impactful this is really fun ,this is a kind of starting to change my life of seeing the world a little bit different ,for last lesson i'm learning ,i'm actually started to apply to my life i should keep doing this this is pretty fun. and then kind of be keep of addictive so them is came to the question how do i find out the time and what i learn is that if i can cove* out blocks of time through of a day so little bit time i wake up sometime before you go to bed sometime i'll take a around after eatting meal with my friend i'll take a round for after ten-fifteen minutes you known if i take a bus somewhere. and i'll greeting on the bus. just finding those little moment thought of the day , they really do act up , and you can end up spending what an hour half, two hour every day just like picking those ten minute here, fifteen there and spending them reading at the post to being on your phone or whatever so i twenty weeks and then i feel like different* some of the twenty best week in my life some of twenty week for as change the most * dissaperson , i mean what i say like feel like a different person and that is changing my life . because the way what i've looking at the world is complete different the way i look at myself and in the mirror is different the way i look at myself and in the mirror is different and that is really excited to me beacause twenty weeks is not very long time and a grand give things so where am i get another twenty weeks and another twenty weeks, and another twenty weeks that can keep this happened up keep this personal develop going that is really excited to me and then become

  1. Hey all. I totally forgot to talk about audio books. I don't use them a ton, but I have in the past (I find them especially useful when traveling/walking). If you want to sign up for a free trial of Audible and get two free audio books, I'd appreciate if you use this link since I get a little kickback: https://amzn.to/2r4PgEN

  2. I recommend you a book named Justice. It was wonderful! It talks about different moral issues, freedom issues and try to draw a final conclusion of what justice is and how to apply it. It has a lot of debatable opinions and theories and many philosophy in it. I am on the half way of the book but I'm sure it is really good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Try it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Have you ever read 12 rules for life by Jordan Peterson? This canadian professors lessons sound so much light your insights and comments about being productive and making something meaningful to your life

  4. i wish i could buy some books. sadly, but i need to used to read online free books. but you know, holding a book and reading it, is a vast different on reading some online books. and yea, we're same, i'm addicted to books but it weakens my eyes if i keep reading using my phone. hope all.

  5. Appreciate Video! Sorry for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you thought about – Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (search on google)? It is a smashing exclusive product for teaching children to read minus the normal expense. Ive heard some decent things about it and my work buddy after many years got astronomical results with it.

  6. Dear John,
    Reading is a very powerful language skill that literate people develop over time. However, reading can not be compared based on the number of books we read. Rather, reading depends on the type of books you read. For example, if you are reading stories like Harry Potter, etc., you may be able to read more than 52 books a year. By contrast, if you read the hard science books such as Differential Equations or Quantum Mechanics, it may take you much longer to complete even one book. So, I don't judge reading by the number of books they read, but I judge people based on the type of books they read.

  7. Read, Fall of Giants by Ken Follett. You will FALL in love with books, reading, history and the art of story telling.

  8. I am sorry this might demotivate you but it's the truth. Even after 2000 weeks of reading, you'll still be at the same place.

  9. Thank you very much for your videos. I was in a phase where I was kind of sick of learning after working very hard for olympiads and not getting the results I wanted and your videos are really inspiring and keep me from giving up learning. Thank you again!

  10. Read paulo coelho's books , you might have heard of his best seller " alchemist" and you can read "Aleph" and u could enjoy reading " book thief" , apart from that thanks for motivating me !!

  11. The initial explanation of reward is false…. Reading has its intrinsic rewards like peace of mind and focus and clarity
