Mr. CEO here!!!! This month is MY month to provide some content. So, as GYFG always starts off with:
This monthly series is my (Mr. CEO’s) attempt to curate the web for you. I probably consume more content than one person should (I have three kids so I don’t consume as much as GYFG, but I am using Feedly and have definitely been stepping the content up since I got on there), but I am kind of a knowledge junkie. I don’t just consume content for the sake of consumption (because again, as noted, I have KIDS). The goal is to always learn something, gain a new perspective, contribute to the conversation, and fuel the idea factory. Reading is exercise for the brain and just like the body it needs plenty of it to stay healthy.
In any given month I try to read at least 3-5 books (I try to read one each month). I also have over 100 different blogs that I follow from my Feedly app (I am sitting at about 25 right now). In addition to the books and the blogs, I also listen to about a dozen podcasts (just one right now consistently and it’s because of GYFG’s podcast there – www.designthelifeyouwant.com). And then there is always the unplanned material that I stumble across or that gets shared with me (surprisingly, Facebook friends share a decent amount of articles with me during the month).
With that said here are the ones I thought were worth sharing. They only represent a small percentage of what I actually read, but if you have the time they are worth checking out.
