“Great minds like a think.”
– The Economist
Based on research from the Jenkins Group, one-third of high school graduates never read another book for the rest of their lives. 42% of college graduates never read another book after college, and 80% of families did not buy or read a book last year.
Great minds, like great bodies, need exercise. Reading and thinking about new ideas is like doing cerebral sit-ups, toning our cores to have those six-pack abs we desire.
How will you exercise your mental muscles in the coming days, weeks, and years ahead to avoid the atrophy of the mind?
Consider taking the “use it or lose it” mental fitness challenge in Episode 10 of Brain Games, from National Geographic.
