Timing

If you’re a regular reader of my reading list you’ll know that I read a lot of books. And one of the things I like the most, of course, is when a book changes your life. Even though you might think that that’s only possible if the book is really good, there another factor to consider.
Taking a look of my bookshelf, I notice that some books were really good and I didn’t like them.
Others were okay… but I loved them.
Why’s that?
Timing.
If you pick the right book at the right time it will change your life. Actually, if the book is really good you’ll remember it for the rest of your life. But it just has to be good to make some change in you.
Of course it has to be great, but the thing here is that timing is critical.
Some of the books that have changed my life, if I would’ve read them a year later the impact would be different.
And that’s the point. Right stuff at the right time.
