I love to read. My goal is to read every day. For hours and hours. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett have told me that taking the time to read and think is one of the key roles of the CEO. Yet despite my lofty goal of a daily reading binge, I find that I rarely, if ever, meet that goal.
I first read Julia Cameron’s fantastic book The Artist’s Way years ago, and it impacted my life in a number of positive ways. I started writing a three-page journal every morning. I reflected on how I could better incorporate creativity into my routine. And I made a list of five “Imaginary Lives” that I might lead.
I was not surprised to hear of the coming demise of e-readers. In a time when we're consolidating from needing many devices to needing only a few (I just used my iPhone to mute my Amazon Fire TV), I always felt e-readers were a temporary phenomenon.
