Apparently, reading is important…

18 Sep

A piece in the Harvard Business Review blog, points to the importance of reading:

For Those Who Want to Lead, Read“.

The post points out that reading is good for:

-improv[ing] intelligence and lead[s] to innovation and insight
-mak[ing] you smarter through “a larger vocabulary and more world knowledge in addition to the abstract reasoning skills.”
-is one of the quickest ways to acquire and assimilate new information.

Hmmm…is this one of those cases of “Everything I Ever Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten”?

Anyway, the article even encourages us to:
“Read for fun. Not all reading has to be developmental. Read to relax, escape, and put your mind at ease.”
