Read good books.

It is said that leaders must be readers. Aim towards leadership – if not of others, at least aim to lead yourself. Part of this process means that you must become a reader of good books.

The Kindle has it’s use, but there’s something about a tangible book that can’t be replicated by a device. So try shutting off the glowing screens that are everywhere and pick up a real, paper book. A good book – one worth reading – and immerse yourself in it’s words.

Read good books.
