Splendid Giveaway: Win a Kindle!Wednesday, December 02, 2009
I went to Kindergarten twice. True story. I was the only one in my class who couldn't read by the end of the year, so I had to repeat the grade. This little piece of my history always makes me laugh because reading is now one of my favorite things to do. In business, I find it to be as necessary to my company's health as water is to the human body's health.
In March, I ordered the Kindle, an ebook reader from Amazon, because it made traveling a bit easier. Since then, I've read about 75 books on the device. I understand that not everyone will read at the pace I do, however, reading is vital to growth. It can sharpen your thinking, affirm choices you've made, and also allow you to see what's being said and taught that you simply don't agree with.
As we all gear up for a new year, I'd encourage you to make time in your schedule to include reading for your business. I also suggest making time for reading fiction as well since it stimulates creativity. As a springboard for your own business reading plan, I am giving away a Kindle to one of you.
