Since the beginning of the year (2023) I have been reading a book every week and writing reviews. However, one of the books I recently read has influenced me to give up... no, pivot into something more beneficial to my future. The book is called 6 months to 6 figures and aside from the name it's very interesting. Peter Voogd is a young entrepreneur, on the rise, and chapter two of his book struck a cord. He discusses overload vs. mastery. For example, I was reading a book every week but not retaining the information which he explains as overloading. Although I was learning a lot, I was probably only soaking up 10% of what I was reading and didn't have enough time to go back and re-read what I missed. So, instead of reading 52 books a year, the goal is to read 6-12 going forward. If I read the same book 1-3 times, I feel like I'll have a better chance at mastering the book. The goal is to understand each chapter so well that I could teach it to someone.
