One of my daily rituals is to read every day without exception.

Sometimes, I don’t feel like it.

Sometimes, I get very little from the experience.

Sometimes, I wonder why I bother.

Sometimes, I leave it until too late in the evening and think that perhaps this is the day to stop.

But then something happens.

I come across a story, a quote, a timeless principle.

A line or paragraph resonates and speaks directly into a challenge that I’m facing or I get an idea that I can get excited about.

And in that moment, I remember why I read.

And I turn up again the next day, eagerly anticipating fresh insights.
