Why CEOs of Companies Have a Habit of Reading Books?

You must have read somewhere or heard from somebody that successful CEOs are regular readers and have a habit of reading at least one book per week.  It doesn’t matter whether they are on the road, in travel, in the office or anywhere else; they always have a neat stack of books with them to devour onto whenever they have some free moments.

So, the question that comes out of this is as to why the CEOs have this healthy habit of reading books wherever they go. Well! There, indeed, are a lot many reasons to explain this.

Below listed are some significant points that highlight the importance of books in a CEO’s life.

Go through them and who knows even you might start developing your reading skills.

  • Collecting Wise Thoughts & Ideas from Non-Fiction

A CEO doesn’t read all types of books. Their main focus is on Non-Fiction which aids and assists them to gather great thoughts and ideas. Later on, they apply the same to their personal and professional lives. If you ask a CEO the reason behind their success; immediately you will get a reply that they are successful because of their excellent reading habits.

  • Speeches and Lectures

A CEO is often called to universities, colleges, and schools to inspire students from their speech or lectures. Now, if a CEO doesn’t read, how he/she will get good ideas and thoughts to put forward his/her sense of life in front of students and motivate them to achieve what they desire in life.

  • Motivation to do Hard Work

While most of us gather some motivation from movies; a CEO doesn’t do that. Instead, they rely on books for their motivation. According to them, there are a lot of non-fiction stories as to how hard work made a person climb the ladder of success and finally reach his/her objective or goal in life. Being a CEO is a very busy and hectic job. Often, you have to say bye-bye to good night sleep. This can lead to lack of energy and will to do hard work. CEOs keep themselves motivated with a burning desire to achieve what they want by reading good books.

  • Every Problem has a Solution

A CEO has to deal with a lot of problems and issues in professional as well as personal life. They believe that whatever problems they are facing somebody must have encountered them earlier and written down the solutions he/she implemented in the form of a book. Hence, a CEO loves reading books because they can find the answers to their problems in them.


These are some of the reasons that compel CEOs to develop great reading habits.

Not just CEOs, it is essential for everybody to read. At one point of life or another, what you have read before, will help you.
