“In my whole life, I have known no wise people (over a broad subject matter area) who didn’t read all the time — none. Zero.”Charlie Munger

What do Mark Cuban, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Elon Musk, and Barack Obama all have in common each day? They are all voracious readers who have reported to follow the 5-hour rule. Let’s dive into that today… 

The 5-hour rule is a concept that involves spending one hour each weekday, learning, reflecting, and experimenting. It’s a practice embraced by many successful leaders, entrepreneurs, and thinkers.

The breakdown typically involves:

  • Reading (or other learning): Spend one hour each day reading books, articles, or other educational material to stay informed and continually expand your knowledge base.

  • Reflection: Dedicate time to reflect on your experiences, decisions, and challenges. Use this hour to gain insights, learn from mistakes, and refine your approach.

  • Experimentation (or application): Allocate one hour for experimenting with new ideas, applying new knowledge, or working on personal projects. Hands-on experience enhances understanding and skills.

Why I love it – The 5-hour rule is powerful because of its simplicity, and it enables me to be a thought leader and stay relevant in an ever-changing leadership environment. I am into making things simpler, less chaotic, more introspective – leading to expansion – and I invite you to join me and these other high-performing individuals.
