I came across a post called the three book diet. As I read the author’s challenge I became interested. It was perfect timing. I’d embarked in a reinvented – reinvented because I’ve tried to do this before with failure – transformation to unleashing the most complete being that I can possibly be.
What is the three book diet?
It is a reading diet where you trim your reading list to three books for a time frame. In this process you are rereading those books, and taking notes of the messages offered – yes, you are studying these books.
These books are on any topics you wish, or your current situation. In the original post the author, Chris Borgan, will be doing his book diet for a year.
I am a person whom gets bored rather quickly – a big reason I am always changing my workout routines, constantly. To prevent from getting bored, and to get the most out of this idea, I decided to make my three book diet a three month session. Changing books every three months (first session starts 11/4/12 – 02/4/12). I will study these books and spend time with their message; all while applying the ideas into my everyday life. In addition, I will be taking notes. I will share my notes on this blog (look on the sidebar for Three Book Diet).
As I complete these challenge I am aiming to increase my mind to new heights. I also want to share my work with people who are looking for answers to their questions. Most importantly, to get to know myself as a father, husband and a human being.
I spent the first day sorting through my one-hundred ebooks I have stored on my amazon kindle. After an hour of debating I was able to narrow my choices.
Here are my first 3 books for my diet challenge:
- The Bible
- The Words of Martin Luther King, Jr.
- The Art of War for Writers
