How I Built A Productive Reading Habit & How You Can Too...

One of the key ways to learn for me in recent times has been reading books. But the journey of productively reading doesn’t end with just reading. It’s the process of building a structure around how you read and how you distill what you learn to drive the most amount of value for your mind. I run through my structure for productively reading in this video and would love to know what your system is in the comments.

About me :

I’m an entrepreneur, podcaster, creator, life long learner & conversationalist.

I co-founded “The Glitch” in 2009 and helped grow it to being one the premier New age creative agencies in the country ( it was acquired by WPP in 2017).

On my podcast 'Advertising is dead', I talk to a multitude of guests about the changes and disruptions in the world of business. I also host “The Varun duggi show” which is a twice a week audio-blog podcast on work life and everything in between and occasional conversation with some interesting people about their lives, inspirations & motivation. I also write a weekly newsletter called “Unschooled” where I share a ton of mind musings and recommendations.

I’m a strong believer that content is going to drive the Brands of tomorrow and that the creator economy will reshape the way the world works. I propagate un-hustle culture and being fit for life. I also spend way too much time staring at screens and talking into mics but i’m always open to have a conversation about anything ( literally everything)!

I’d love to hear from you! Write to me at or hit me up on social media!
