“Share a quote (or quotes) from a reading you’ve done and explain what interests you about it.” – Quote Me on That
These past few months, I’ve been putting a lot of effort into self-improvement. One of the things I have aimed for improving was the rate at which I read books, and overall, how many books I read a year. So far this year, I have finished three books.
The books are:
- The Habit Loop by Charles Duhigg
- The Book on Real Estate Investing With Low and No Money Down by Brandon Turner
- Good to Great by Jim Collins
One of the most noteworthy quotes that I read out of all of these books, that I think will have the most value out of context- was this:
“Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice.”
What interests me about this quote is that it can be applied to anything in business, the interpersonal world, and beyond. In the book, it spends the entirety of its contents discussing the difference between average companies and great companies. Despite this, the book still provides many incredibly insightful pieces of information, ready to be applied to our own lives.
