Leaders Are Readers
I am a voracious reader, and I tend to tap into a broad range of books. Everything from fiction to non-fiction, business to science, art/architecture to nature, and on and on. Sometimes I read a book cover to cover, sometimes I skim for the highlights, and often I listen to them on Audible to take in what I can through soundbites. I have come to see that the books I have read have had a significant impact on me. It has opened new ways of thinking, new ways of learning, and often it has opened up a dialog with people who have changed my life.
Every time someone comes on my podcast, The Virtual Campfire, I ask them what are one or two books that have had an impact on their lives. I am always amazed at what comes up. What is really interesting is not the books themselves but what they take away from them. Sometimes books are like a teacher that we meet at just the right time in our journey to open up a new pathway.
