Books > entertainment
One peculiar trait I’ve taken notice to in my personality is that I’ll often put reading books and watching TV shows in the same category. Both of the activities can feel like I’m wasting my time. It’s confusing, and it’s the reason I haven’t gotten further in Pride & Prejudice, the book I’m currently reading. It seems like there are better things to be doing. But me and you both know how valuable books are.
The sooner I figure out how to mentally prioritize books and learning in a meaningful way, the better. A “meaningful way” because one thing I’m constantly thinking about avoiding is simply becoming a library of facts. A library of facts doesn’t help anyone in the age of the internet, we have Google. We need people with understanding.
