I was on the phone with one of my best friends this weekend. He told me he started reading a new book.
Knowing he hadn’t read a full book since high school, I was shocked.
“What made you decide to start reading,” I asked. He responded:
“Well, I saw online the other day that 80% of Americans don’t read books. That pissed me off. But then I realized that I’m one of that 80%. Which pissed me off even more. I don’t want to be part of a shitty statistic.”
I’ve never thought about it like that. What statistics annoy you that YOU are a part of?
More than two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese.
40% of adults are sleep deprived (regularly get fewer than 7 hours of sleep a night).
79% of American children and adults don’t get enough exercise for optimal health.
So my question to you is…
Are you a statistic?
