I read a lot.

I read a lot of books, I read a lot on Medium, I read a lot of blogs and get way too many “helpful” emails.

I’ve noticed a theme lately where a lot of what I’m reading is trying desperately to say the same thing in a different way, over and over again:

This is how I’ve succeeded.

This is how I’ve done it.

I’m tired of reading so many of these articles, you know?

The thing is, they are not helpful to me because the vast majority of these articles out there do not apply to me at all.

I am not a young man in my twenties who can get up before the crack of dawn to go get swole at the gym and then come home for a meditation session and a smoothie before he sits down to write about how he accomplished financial freedom without actually telling us how he’s making a living, ever.
