As (our) beloved Seth Godin said in his yesterday’s blog post ->  ” I wonder why we believe we can skip reading and still be so dang smart.” Guys, I so encourage you to “read your eyes off”, because skipping this “hard part” will not get you anywhere near being indispensable, smart, well – read linchpin.

I concluded last month of 2010 with thrilling fiction novel Pharaoh. Woa, what a ride! [Read more…]
