In 15 minutes a day you can learn more than most people learn in 4 years of college.
For the past year I’ve started each workday making a cup of coffee and spending 15 minutes reading something dense. In that time I’ve finished over 1500 pages worth of incredible material. Here’s a few of those books:
- A book on microeconomics by Gregory Mankiw
- Toyota Production System by Taiichi Ohno
- A seminal book on code refactoring by Martin Fowler
- Poor Charlie’s Almanac compiled by Peter Kaufman using Charlie Munger’s material.
This may sound like dry and boring material and at times it is. But the fact is, anyone can sit down and read something truly deep and important for 15 minutes a day. It’s sort of like the Colorado river carving out the Grand Canyon. From day-to-day you may not see a perceptible difference in the landscape but over time something truly magnificent happens.
