How to be an Expert
Read 3 books on the subject.
Motivational speaker and author Craig Valentine says very few people read these days. The average person reads only one or a few books a year.
If you read three books on a subject, you will know more than at least 90% of people on that subject.
Here’s an example from my life. When I saw the author of The Wheat Belly interviewed on CBS, I got his book from the library and read it. It was so fascinating, I also picked up Grain Brain by David Perlmutter.
With my appetite whetted, I continued on with the granddaddy of the Paleolithic Diet Loren Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet. This was followed by Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas, Perfect Health Diet by Paul and Shou-Ching Jaminet and finally The Wahls Protocol by Dr. Terry Wahls.
While I certainly do not claim to be an expert now on gluten and the Paleo diet, I learned a lot. Enough to make changes that are making a positive and useful impact on my life.
Who cares really what others think? What does it matter if someone else labels you an expert or not? The important thing is that we improve our lives, is it not?
If then, in sharing some things we have learned, we may improve others lives, why that’s a bonus.
So, to know more about a subject than 90% of others, read three books on it.
Simple, yes? Now, go out and do it.
Choose a subject you have curiosity about. You may find some passion for that subject once you dive into.
Let me know how it goes.
