Keep Reading

How many books do you read each year?

I'm not keeping score And as a full disclosure you should probably know that part of what I do is sell books and learning resources. Even if I didn't, though, I am a big believer in continuing to learn.

Read. Experiment. Explore. Talk about it. Try things. Watch videos. Listen to audios. Keep learning.

The world is changing so fast, how will you keep up? How do you get the training the need when you're not being offered the training you need? Keep reading.

You don't have to read every book cover to cover to find great value in it.

I used to think that if I started reading a book that I'd have to finish it. That got me slugging thru some poor material. Now I know that you can glean a lot from a book by scanning it, skimming it, reading what you need and leaving the rest for another time.

I do still read books cover to cover (some more than once!) AND I read a lot of books for what is relevant to me right now.

However you read, please read. Give yourself that advantage. Grow.

What are you reading today?

  1. I for one would appreciate the occasional "Doug's pick of the bookshelf" announcement!
