WARNING: Reading Harry Potter will not turn you into a wizard

DISCLAIMER: Reading Harry Potter will not turn you into a wizard

I’ve had this theory for a while that whatever you read the night before has a huge impact on how your day goes. It started when I had this lazy streak I attribute to my subscription to Entertainment Weekly. I used to read it every night along with other random articles about movies, TV shows, Hollywood gossip, etc. The very next day I watched all the shows while my to-do list cried on my desk. I was up to date on pop culture but I wasn’t being very productive. Jim, on the other hand, reads articles from Harvard Business Review and other motivational pieces about work so he wakes up the next day ready to conquer another day at the office. I decided to take a page from his book (hehehe).

First, I had to decide what I wanted to do everyday and I narrowed it down to at least two things: I wanted to 1) work and 2) work out every single day. So I bookmarked a couple of productivity pages and I subscribed to Women’s Health magazine on Zinio. The results were amazing. I would wake up being pumped up and ready to work out to get it out of the way (I set aside 30 minutes a day for exercise) and I make sure to set 9AM-6PM for work. While some people think of it as a luxury, it’s actually difficult to be your own boss. Having discipline is definitely something that needs getting used to and I’m glad I am finally starting to master it. Reading for pleasure is scheduled during my designated lunch break so I get to read my books and graphic novels for at least an hour a day.

Feel free to prove or disprove this theory of mine and let me know if I’m correct or not!

Saab

    Seriously, I read your blog the other night before I went to sleep and in my dreams, you and Jim were my friends. As in close friends, sinundo nyo ko sa bahay. haha. I’m a third wheel, and kahit sa panaginip, ang sweet nyong dalawa.

    I started reading “How To Prosper” by Bo Sanchez last week before sleeping and since then, I decided to be rich and not only wish for it. I am still mastering the art of saving and cutting down some expenses that are actually unnecessary. To cut it short, I concur! You are so correct about this theory. :)
