“The art of living easily as to money is to pitch your scale of living one degree below your means.” – Sir Henry Taylor
This monthly series is my attempt to curate the web for you. I probably consume more content than one person should, but I am kind of a knowledge junkie. I don’t just consume content for the sake of consumption. 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 also have over 100 (now down to 50 as I simplify) different blogs that I follow from my Feedly app. In addition to the books and the blogs, I also listen to about a dozen podcasts. And then there is always the unplanned material that I stumble across or that gets shared with me.
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.
