Influential Reads – February 2019

February 2019

I’ve still not gotten around to writing about my process for collecting, filtering (Feedly), reading, saving (Evernote) and reviewing my reading list.  I actually made a tweak to the process in February that simplified a step and started using the desktop version of Evernote. More to come…

I’m realizing that I probably spend more time on “expiring information” (see Compounding Knowledge article below) than I should be, so I am evolving my system to focus on higher quality reading.  

I’m also going to be posting my reading stats (I am no Brad Feld):

Here are my most influential reads from February – in no particular order:

  1. Delta C.E.O. Ed Bastian: ‘Leadership Is Not a Popularity Contest’
  2. 3 Signs That Tell Me Its Time to Let An Employee Go
  3. How I’ve Made Email my Secret Weapon – I deleted all my folders in Outlook and can’t find sh*t
  4. We need to stop striving for work-life balance. Here’s why
  5. They Live!
  6. You Don’t Need Sports Drinks To Stay Hydrated
  7. Compounding Knowledge
  8. The Slipstream of Comfort
  9. The Online Gig Economy’s ‘Race to the Bottom’
  10. The 12 Signs a Cheap Stock Is a ‘Value Trap’

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.
