Posts Tagged ‘Books’
This morning, my focus is on a stack of books staring at me that fall into one of the following categories: read, somewhat-read, half-read or not read.
So rather than spending my time reading new found goodies on the Internet, I thought I would sharing my reading list (in no particular order). I don’t know about most people, but for me it’s normal that I read 2-3 books at a time or I poke around in a book until I find what I need (usually a proof point of some sort).

Regardless of your position within an organization, if you want to see change you need to institute change. Small steps often lead to big change. You have the ability to encourage others to have the confidence and courage to follow. The one thing that I find helps is arming myself with knowledge. You don’t know what you don’t know, right? One of the things I turn to broaden my knowledge are books. It’s amazing what you can learn at such a minimal cost, if you just put the time and effort into it.
