About four years ago I decided to read 100 new books a year. I’ve kept up that habit until recently.

I stopped reading two new books a week because I forgot almost everything I learned more than a year earlier. And there’s no way you can remember even a quarter of a book you read three years ago.

It’s fun. But also frustrating.

By now, there are hundreds of books on my reading list. And there’s no way I can read everything. I’ve finally realized that.

I also realized at an early age that with the right knowledge, you can achieve anything.
