Let’s assert for the moment that you get paid to create, manipulate or spread ideas. That you don’t get paid to lift bricks or hammer steel. If you’re in the idea business, what’s going to improve your career, get you a better job, more respect or a happier day? Forgive me for suggesting (to those not curious enough to read this blog and others) that it might be reading blogs, books or even watching TED talks.
says Seth. Amen. So when you say you don’t have time to read (a book or a blog, or watch a TED talk), you’re also saying you don’t have time to be better. Off with you.
