Most of us manage to find time for the things we really like. Where the ambition is, there is time.

Reading is one of my favorite activities. I like spending time with people, I like the outdoors, arts and music, I like to travel and discover new places but somehow, it seems to me that I can always find time for reading.

Why? I’m not sure, but I know it is the activity that inspires me the most. This is one of my best source for new ideas. Not that I don’t find inspiration in other activities, I do, but reading keeps me energized and motivated, especially when life gets in the way.

One of my young daughters used to read a lot, and then came Facebook, YouTube and the iPod … now reading has become a boring activity for her. I keep trying to convince her to start again, and so far I have been unsuccessful. I hope that one day she will re-discover the joy of reading.

Someone who doesn’t read is a little bit like someone who cannot read.

What can I suggest to people who don’t like to read?

Try to read on a subject that you are passionnate about. This is one way you could have a chance to turn reading  into a regular habit.

Read, read all  you can. If you keep practicing, you will soon acquire a taste for reading. In time, it will give you a lot of satisfaction and pleasure.
