Why you must read every day

Updated: Jun 7, 2021


It makes you Intellectually Curious - one new thought/perspective leads you to another and hence more knowledge

It makes you Intellectually Humble - the more you read the more you realize there is so much you don’t know about

It makes you a Critical Thinker - you expand your horizons and equip yourself with a wider range of lenses when looking at things

It makes you a Life-Long Learner - once you develop the habit, it is unlikely to go away

It keeps your Brain Alive - it is perhaps one of the best ways to keep your brain active and young

It makes you Confident - it gives you a sense of confidence that you can learn anything at anytime

It’s good for Human Civilization - you are more likely to respect other people’s thoughts, ideas, perspective and culture

It makes you more Conscious and Rationale - you become more aware of the irrationality of your unconscious mind
