A simple system @JamesClear uses to read 30+ books a year.

(thread) 🧵
The problem:

"Reading books is relatively easy. You simply have to make time to read. Easier said than done, of course."

The task:

"I had to figure out a strategy that would allow me to read more books without letting typical distractions get in the way."
The solution:

"Read 20 pages to start the day."

The system:

"I usually wake up, drink a glass of water, write down 3 things I'm grateful for, and read 20 pages of a book. At that pace (7 books per 10 weeks) I'll read about 36 books in the next year. Not bad."
Why it works:

"20 pages is small enough that it's not intimidating. Most people can finish reading 20 pages within 30 minutes. And if you do it first thing in the morning, then the urgencies of the day don't get in the way."
Why small is powerful:

"Before your life turns into a whirlwind of activity, read a book that will make you better. As with most habits that can greatly impact your life, this will never feel urgent, but it is important. 20 pages per day. That's all you need."
20 pages, every morning.

That's the secret.

Reading won't feel urgent, but the benefits will compound over time.

In a year, you'll have read 30+ books and be a new and improved version of yourself.
