I have just installed Feedly on my phone. It’s a pared down blog-feed-reader for easy content consumption that I’m enjoying using. I no longer need to wade through the individual sites, bombarded by ads and popups wanting me to opt-in to claim their latest freebie.
There is so much information out there, it’s hard to know what’s worth reading and what isn’t. Do you feel this too? How do you sift through and decide what has value and gets your time and attention?
Today I thought I would share a quick list of the daily blogs I’m following and ask for you to share some ideas that you recommend in the comments below. My list, in no particular order:
Seth Godin – I’m a big fan; he looks at the world through his own eyes and is always asking oddball questions.
Gabe The Bass Player – His writing is short and to the point. It’s witty, irrelevant and always makes me see the world in a new way.
A Learning A Day – Rohan’s daily blog is wide-ranging and thought-provoking. One day he might be talking about tennis, the next about parenting.
The Story of Telling – “You can’t change a mind without winning a heart.” Bernadette writes beautifully about how you can use stories to sell yourself and your business.
Penelope Trunk – Honest, open and compelling. This entrepreneur shares and discusses her journey through the business world.
James Clear – Author of atomic habits, James writes a long-form article, once a week about how to improve your habits and make better decisions.
I recommend each one of the above. But I’m conscious that there must be so many more out there that I’m missing and would be great additions to my daily reading. So please share any that you think I would like.
I read a quote recently which resonated with me.
“Masters think like beginners. They are always learning.”
So today, I hope you will have this firmly in your mind. Keep your eyes open and your head looking around to see what new insights and skills you can learn. For it is with this learning that you will make your dreams a reality. Long before others believe, you must believe it’s possible. Remember, we climb the mountain, not in giant leaps but one small step at a time.
