How do you keep up with everything you need/want to read?
Even if it wasn’t for the myriad side-interests I have, the amount of stuff I have to read within my current field is enormous.
- Technology changes
- Regulatory and legal changes
- New competitors
- New products
- New thoughts and ideas
It seems that unless there’s some discipline applied, reading chores can quickly snowball into zero productivity time wasting events.
Currently, I’m trying to do the same thing with my reading that I do with my writing. There’s a 1 hour block in my day for reading. I have stuff queued up in Evernote, where I tag items as read as I go through them. At the end of the hour, I stop and go to my next thing. Part of me gets frustrated at stop-time. I could easily go an entire day reading. But over the course of a week, I’m actually amazed at how much I read.
So far, so good.
What do you do to manage all the stuff you want to read?
