One common denominator I’ve found among the successful people I have had the privilege of meeting is that most of them are insatiable readers. Having said that, it seems that knowing what the people you are grooming for executive positions are reading is one indicator of the person’s potential.
We are fortunate to live in a world where opportunities to read are everywhere: books, magazines, web-sites and newsletters. Everywhere we look there is something to read. Reading, in m my opinion, helps form who we are now and what we will become in the future.
