Allocate enough time to read Perhaps you've already heard about the rule of "five hours a week" or "30 pages a day." But this is the minimum.

The most famous example is the personal release of Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg entitled A Year of Books.
Zuckerberg set the goal of reading the book every two weeks throughout 2015, focusing on the study of different cultures, stories, beliefs and technologies. The action was successful: Mark not only successfully completed the challenge, but also motivated thousands of people to read these books and read in general.
