There is a saying: You are what you read. I subscribe to this philosophy. Past few years have been great, I have been reading in bulk.
I have also realized most of the new age writing: productivity, efficiency, and self-help writings are old wine in new bottle.
Some of these best sellers are personal experiences or summary of research papers. Nobody knows if they will work in real life.
I have decided to limit my reading this year. I will spend more time re-reading some of my favorites.
