“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The man who never reads lives only one.” – George R.R. Martin
It’s hard to find the time to read for pleasure, so many other important tasks get in the way. So don’t read for pleasure, commit to reading for your quality of life.
There are six necessary conditions for success. Learning is one of the necessary conditions. If you are not going forward, then you are going backwards. There is no standing still. The world will simply pass you by.
If you don’t know how to use the internet, you are missing out on the knowledge of the world. True, some of it isn’t worth wanting to know about, but the choice of discovery has been taken away from you.
Commitment to reading 30 minutes each day about something that interests you. Learn something new, get excited and involved in the world around you. Join a book club, community club, business network or an internet forum like Total Commitment Cloud

I will persist until I succeed.
I was not delivered into this world into defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep.
The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.
I will persist until I succeed.”
—From the ancient scroll marked III in The Greatest Salesman in the World
