July 6th, 2021 | Reading vs Writing

I’m reading too much lately. And I’m sacrificing writing in it’s place.

Hell, I never thought I would ever say this.

In all of my life, up until a year ago, I had read a total of 5 books to completion. A couple of Harry Potter books when I was growing up and a couple of self help books in university. 

But ever since I started reading and writing in 2020, I have read around 20 books.

Yes. Reading books helped me change my life. But writing helped me even more. And now I’m at a point where I’m reading a lot more and writing a lot less.

It might sound hyperbolic, but if you want clarity of mind, you should write more and read less.
