When Taiwanese business genius Chen Maobang was 15 years old, he was forced to drop out of school and was the second largest bookstore in Taiwan at that time. He works 12 hours a day from morning till night. He works in a bookstore during the day and lives in the store at night. For a long time, he gradually developed the habit of reading at least two hours of books every night. He said: “When I first entered the Civilization Hall, I only graduated from elementary school. When I left in 8 years, my level of knowledge was no less than that of college students.” When speaking around the world, Chen Maobang always said to the audience: “Remember Live this sentence: The fate of a person is determined between 8 and 10 in the evening.”
William Osler, a Canadian clinical medical scientist, is a model for making achievements in his spare time. Osler’s greatest contribution to humanity was the successful study of a third type of blood cell (now called platelets). In order to take time out of his busy work, Osler made a rule for himself: he must read a book for 15 minutes before going to bed every night. No matter how busy he is, it is two or three o’clock in the morning, he must also read the book for 15 minutes and then go to sleep. This habit he insisted on half of the world. I read a total of 1098 books.
Survival during the day and development at night is the demand for talent in the 21st century. The difference between people is that in your spare time, how do you use your spare time will ultimately determine how you spend your life.
