Healthy Habits: 5 Guideliness for Successful Reading Time

One of the most important things you can do as a leader is to digest as much information as possible. Be current and aware of what’s going on. Challenge yourself to read about diverse topics and opinions.

Strategic thinking starts with context. Being aware allows you to lead. Knowledge is power.

To this end, one of the core elements of my morning routine is my reading time, when I get up-to-speed on the latest news and information. I scour multiple and diverse sources, skimming through titles and diving deep into what I find interesting or new.

I then broadcast the most compelling and insightful articles on the subjects I talk about most – innovation, technology, product, business, entrepreneurship, work-life integration, and humble confidence – to my social networks. I figure if it’s insightful to me, it will be insightful to those who choose to follow me.

A lot of people ask me how I do this. How do I read and share as much as I do? How do I get through my daily reading without getting distracted and taking action on what I’m reading?

I have a proven process for morning reading that I’ve developed over the past several years. Here are the five guidelines I use.

5 Keys for When You're Hectic

Healthy Habits: 5 Keys for When You’re Hectic

A couple of weeks ago I returned from the longest vacation I’ve ever taken. What was unique about this vacation was not that it was the longest, but that it was the one where I “checked out” the most—in fact, almost completely! I spent significant mental time not only away from the business and my day-to-day activities, but also thinking about life and freeing my mind to consider all aspects of my life, including my business.

That presented a unique challenge, because it meant that when I came back, I had been gone—not just physically but mentally as well—for two weeks.

How did I do it?

Pursue Your Passion, but Lead Your Heart

Pursue Your Passion, but Lead Your Heart

Be passionate about what you do and, even more, pursue your passion.

Passion pushes you forward when the going gets rough. It keeps you energized when you’ve been at it for a while. And it helps you persevere when you’re ready to give up.

Passion is what wakes you up excited and eager to get going. It brings pleasure to what we accomplish and it drives us to be the best we can be.

Too many people hate their jobs. Too many people don’t care about what they do. They punch a time clock. They show up. They go home. They work because they have to.

Life is too short to live this way.

On My Phone Dark Sky

What’s on My Phone: Dark Sky

I don’t buy apps. Period.

Well, except for those I’m just flat out blown away by. This one would be one of the few.

Dark Sky is a weather app. I’m not a weather junkie, but, this little app gives me weather exactly the way I need it. It delivers a time lapse of temperatures and precipitation and proactively alerts me to things I need to be aware of (it’s starting to rain, it may start raining in 20 minutes).

Seriously, my wife is a weather junkie and I have learned to hate the weather because of it, but, still, you have to buy this app!
