Episode #72: READ WHAT YOU LOVE
The “what” is easy. Craftwork is a specialty coffee shop and vibrant membership-based workspace with locations in Fort Worth (Foundry, Camp Bowie, Magnolia) and Austin (Domain). We serve craft coffee and are a connected coworking space. But you knew that already. Our “why” is our heart – we desire to create spaces and places where our members and customers experience connection and community.
We hope this finds you well. We believe that we are never too young or too old to learn important things for life. One foundation for continuous learning is reading.
If this is the case, it begs the question: What do we read and how do we read? For many of us, reading is a struggle. It feels more like a chore than something we enjoy. This week, we want to encourage you to cultivate your desire to read by making a simple suggestion: Read what you love.
One of the amazing benefits of the internet is the amount of knowledge available to us at all times. So, it’s not the means of learning that is scarce, it’s the desire to learn that is scarce. If continuous learning through reading is to become a habit, we first need to cultivate our desire for reading. So what do we do? We suggest reading what we love until we love to read. It’s that simple. Read the things that interest us, inspire us, and captivate us until we kind of understand them. What is fascinating? What is interesting? What do we love? By spending some time each day reading about these things, a desire to read can be nurtured. May reading what we love catalyze the habit of continuous learning for each of us.
