we live in a world of distractions most of which are caused by this I find myself opening apps purely out of habit news alerts constantly buzz our phones usually unnecessarily and I find it harder than ever to focus but I found a solution in the last couple years I found myself spending less time reading books and more time reading the Internet now I love reading articles and things online I mean there is so much to learn on the Internet but it comes with a lot of distractions I mean you have pop-up ads notifications from your email texts and social media and of course the ever-present desire to check out what your friends are posting on their stories the tools we use to explore the Internet are prepackaged with distractions but books don’t come with any of that stuff I’ve tried to form a new habit where every day I’ll carve out 20 to 30 minutes to put my phone on do not disturb mode and pick up a book and more often than not an hour goes by and I’m still reading getting lost in a book helps put things in perspective for one you don’t really miss that much when you put the internet away for 30 minutes it’s still there when you pick it back up and there are lots of other benefits to reading improves your vocabulary clears your mind inspires creativity and makes you a better writer quick aside I want to share a passage from this book on writing by Stephen King which I found to be a great guide to becoming a better writer here’s an interesting note that he had about reading the real importance of reading is that it creates an ease and intimacy with the process of writing constant reading will pull you into a place where you can write eagerly and without self-consciousness the more you read the less apt you are to make a fool of yourself with your pen or word processor so I’ve decided to start a book club I want to share some books with you that I love and create a place for us to talk about them first up is a book I read a couple weeks ago and can’t stop thinking about I really really enjoyed it it’s called the secret history by Donna Tartt it’s about a group of friends at a made-up college in the 1980s who get into some trouble there are some elements of suspense that keep you turning the pages once I started it I could not put it down I think you’ll really like it too it’s not a new book so if you’ve read it already comment below and let everyone else know why they should read it to the book club discussion will mostly take place on Twitter so tweet me your thoughts at Jackie coin and I guess use the hashtag Jax book club so we can organize our thoughts and get a little conversation going if you can share your thoughts in a little video so I can grab those and use them in a little recap video when I announce the next book in the series we’ll probably keep changing up the format as time goes on but I’m really excited about this I’m looking forward to hearing what you all think about the secret history and if you find that reading does in fact help you feel a little bit more focused and a little less distracted alright until next time adios amigos [Music] [Music] …
