Successful people are constantly learning. Studies show that they typically read daily to gain knowledge. Knowledge builds up like compound interest and there is no upper limit.
Education and learning are like training and exercise. Just because you trained a lot 10 years ago doesn’t necessarily mean you are fit today. The same goes for learning. Just because you studied 10 years ago, doesn’t mean you are on top of your game today. The good thing is if you don’t find the time to read, a great alternative is to turn to podcasts. Whenever you are commuting, traveling, exercising, relaxing, or working, you have the chance to put on a podcast.
Since we are somewhat isolated on an island in the Stockholm archipelago, in Sweden, we get a lot of our information, education and motivation via podcasts, and we listen to them daily.
