With so much content to absorb and a Google Reader that is starting to bulge I am sometimes overwhelmed by the amount of industry related reading that can be done. It really is never-ending and I am resigned to the fact that one can not get through it all.
I can also feel overloaded with writings from the PR, comms and social media space that I can get a bit of a tunnel vision in my thinking.
My boss David suggested the importance of reading outside the usual texts, authors and bloggers in my list. These ‘other’ readings can help you form your ideas and thinking because your mind is on another track but still rich with the work-related learning.
So last night I opened ‘Extra confessions of a working girl’ to see what kind of higher thinking will evolve… not sure if this is exactly what he had in mind!
