I started my habit of reading business (leadership, management, sales, marketing, etc) books since I started my career to supplement what I learn in the workplace. I pledge to myself that:
- First, I won’t be boxed in the lessons I learned I get either from the books or journal articles I read or from the career I have. I’ll see the common things I learn, reflect about them and affirm if they’re a standard. On the other hand, I’ll check for gaps and reflect about their validity.
- Second, I’ll immediately apply all the theoretical knowledge I gain either through direct application or through sharing it with colleagues and/or other concerned, interested parties.
- Third, I’ll regularly read books or journal articles (and reflect about them–possibly through a blog entry) and always look forward to buying new titles.
If we share the same interest (any recommended books?) or if you have any concern or question (you find me nerdy?), kindly leave me a comment so we can discuss.
You can visit and/or follow What Alps Said and Heard, my online repository of quotations, that features my favorite lines and, yeah, quotations from the books I read. Read a book every night before sleeping! :)
Reading list under construction.
