Visit the Library

April 29th, 2005 by Steve Pavlina

When was the last time you made a trip to the local public library? In addition to some rather smelly books, my local library has a small collection of audio programs too, and I can renew most items online for up to 9 weeks before having to return them.

You may not find the latest and greatest new releases, but at least it’s free. I often check out a bunch of items that interest me and then skim through them at home at my leisure. It’s a great way to pick up some new ideas and prevent staleness of thought.

It’s funny how often today’s best “secrets of success” can be found in the writings of Socrates, Franklin, or Emerson. It’s humbling to think I’ve figured out a new secret to life, the universe, and everything, only to later discover that Aristotle had me beat by 2350 years. And despite the archaic language, the classics are often easier to comprehend because they were written long before marketing messed us all up.
