Using book summaries to simplify your business readingViews: 1232

Jorge Azurin
Hi, my name is Jodjie Azurin. Just a few years ago, I was exactly where you were: Trying to get ahead in my business life, but just being too overwhelmed with responsibilities to invest in it.

I knew what it took to succeed.

I knew that, once I increased my productivity, spotted more opportunities, became a more authoritative, effective leader, I would drastically improve my life. I would free up time, get the right people behind me and I could zoom right up to where I wanted to be.

The truth was, nothing really happened because I was always too caught up with the tasks at hand to ever invest in the long term.

On average, I read about one book every 2 months… and I could probably finish one book for one week during my vacation.

I started to ask my assistant to read the latest bestsellers for me and summarize them into 8-12 pages of key points. Then I was able to read key points of each best-seller every week. I absorbed them quickly because they were in easy-to-remember outlines. I also asked her to start making them in PowerPoint format so I can share the ideas with my team. Every week we started our meetings discussing the key points of the latest business book.

I began telling this to my friends about it and they asked me to email them my summaries. My friends love it too. So I began emailing a new summary every week. And they in turn started emailing the summaries to their friends and colleagues.

I had no idea that my book summaries were forwarded to as many people as I could imagine. Before you know it strangers from different corners of the world have been asking me for summaries as well

That's when the concept of business book summaries was born.

Just thought I'd share with you this concept if you are into simplifying your reading lifestyle.

Now I am really curious, if you were to ask me to summarize a business book, what title would you like to see?
