I’ve noticed that some of the most successful individuals devour books and intensely seek out knowledge on a topic, and we should too!
Gary Keller from Keller-Williams, a billionaire and world-wide business owner discusses this very idea on a recent Tim Ferriss (4-hour work week) podcast. That before going out and building a real estate business he received the advice to learn from those who have many more years of wisdom and knowledge about the subject.
Netflix’s recent documentary, Inside Bill’s Brain: Decoding Bill Gates, also talks about the same phenomenon, that one of the most successful men on the planet started off with an intense desire and ability to consume knowledge!
So here is an ever growing list of resources that we can learn from. If you find more resources, please comment!

Read, Listen, Learn, and then Take Action
Remember, that often we can find ourselves just reading continuously and not taking action. There comes a point at which you have to take that action, applying the wisdom and new skills from what you’ve learned.
