In Case You Missed Out on Bitcoin

“If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavorable. Favorable conditions never come.”- C.S. Lewis

If you’re one of the ones who missed out on bitcoin, there’s still time for books.

According to Amazon, you can get classics in history, economics, philosophy, science, and literature for the as low as the price of penny stock. And you won’t have to worry about the value of your investment dropping when other people get rid of their old copies of the same books you buy.

If you’re bullish on knowledge, invest in books ASAP.

I’ve heard many people say they wish they had bought just a little bit of bitcoin 5 years ago. I hear ya, but that train has left the station and there’s nothing you can do about it besides get smarter for the next opportunity you’ll need the intelligence to recognize.

If you think this is sarcasm or satire, think again. In every generation there are people who regret their past failure to acquire useful knowledge. You can avoid making that same mistake by acting now. Don’t look back on this day ten years from now and think to yourself, “Man, I would be so much happier, healthier, and wealthier had I only listened to that one nerdy guy who told me to get in on books.”

I began with C.S. Lewis. I leave with you with the words of Atwood Townsend:

“No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.”
