I think that the most challenging part about reading a book for most is that they want to start a book and finish it immediately. If your schedule doesn’t permit for that, but you still want to read, here are two things that I do:
Listen To Audiobooks – Though it’s not reading yourself, it’s another way to gather information provided in books. I listen to finance and personal development audio books often.
Leave A Book Open On Your Counter Or Table – I really, really enjoy reading about aromatherapy, holistic living, and natural healing so I leave the book I’m currently reading open on the counter in my kitchen. When I’m cooking and at the end of the night I read a few pages.
I used to think that I had to be motivated to do the things that I was passionate about. Such as providing financial therapy (coaching) and producing for my creative business. But, sometimes you don’t feel like doing the things you enjoy, no matter how much you like them.
This is when you have to foresee your future and what you desire from it.
What are you willing to do to get to where you want to be?
So, when you’re not feeling motivated or trying to force motivation, remember it’s the compounding steps that builds up to the results.
