Call it a bad habit – or a routine I am stuck with. I have to start my day with one interesting read – it can be from anywhere – McK quarterly, HBR, The Atlantic, NPR, NYT, Economist, Read Write Web, Knowledge @W – anywhere – but it has to be a fairly detailed read – a case study or a commentary. As long as it is not a news item. So a lot of qualifiers go in there – it is like a recipe to a good day. And the only thing that can substitute this need/routine is a good conversation, an engaging meeting or a solution design issue resolution.
And when none of these needs are met . I know it is one of those days – when I will need a lot of coffee.
Happy Thursday !
