When they feel like it. which some of you are The part-time player. You revise when you feel like it, You give 110% when you feel like it, You put your hand up in class. When you feel like it. And in between the amateur and what Steven Pressfield calls the pro is resistance.

These 4th and 5th books are going to help you to do exactly that. Let’s think about why should you even read in the first place? Why is it something that is going to help you?
These books helped million of the students and people to achieve their goal. So whether you admire Eric Thomas, Gary Vaynerchuk or any of these other self-help gurus. Imagine when you are reading you’re spending one-to-one time with that author.
Now, this might not be true, but that person, that individual over decades of experience has sat down, taken notes on the most important things that they’ve learned and then structured it so that you can take that shortcut.
So the question is not why should you read. The question is really which books should you read? And the problem is there are so many books out there and they are not all created equally. so you need to figure out your goal and pick up the best which fulfills your requirement.
