As part of my reading “system”, I periodically look through all the things that I have read and saved. It’s a nice refresher to look back over what I thought was important at one time. Things might have played out differently or my perspective may have evolved. Regardless, I find it a useful exercise to go back and look through the reads that I have saved.
More on my process for collecting, filtering (Feedly), reading, saving (Evernote) and reviewing my reading list later.
Here are the top reads from 2018 that influenced my year in some way:
- An Ambitious Person’s Brutally Honest Take On Work-Life Balance
- Business Lessons from Mark Leonard (Constellation Software)
- Quality versus crap: Why I bought $80 pajamas
- Why CEOs Devote So Much Time to Their Hobbies
- Haiku Productivity: The Power of Limits to Increase Our Focus : zen habits
- Battling Entropy: Making Order of the Chaos in Our Lives
- The Troubling New Trend in Private Equity
- Flows Before Pros
- A Recession Could Be Big Trouble for the Gig Economy
- How to Use a Password Manager
Note: This is based on when I read the article, not necessarily when it was first published. Unfortunately, my backlog of things I would like to read always seems to dwarf the amount of time I can devote to reading.
