Leaders are readers.
That is an axiom that has proven tricky for me. As areas of responsibity grow and the amount of tasks increase, carving out time is one of those balancing acts. Only recently have I been able to get back to a steady diet of new material.
One article I recently found contained tips on how to get more out of reading. The author is Karol Krol and there are some really worthwhile thoughts contained in the article.
Here are the main points:
- Don't repeat
- Read with your finger.
- The third word rule
- Don't read every word separately
- Don't skip back
- Start too fast
You probably will want to flesh out those thoughts, so here is the link:
