I’m not referring to just Salesforce blogs or other online articles.
Real, physical books.
Yes, they still exist, and believe it or not, they’re FREE at the library.
Or e-books if that’s your thing.
More importantly, reading books that seem totally unrelated to your current day to day work.
Maybe philosophy, auto-biographies, self-help, history, etc.
If you tend to struggle with some of the problems you face at work, maybe reading has the answer you need.
The possible path to overcome problems, might not be with you thinking and dwelling on them directly, but rather subconsciously through reading.
Go off course occasionally, see what comes to mind.
I know, if you only had time…
How about just 15 minutes before your day gets hectic, or on the bus/train ride in, or instead of watching TV in the evening.
Surprisingly, you may become increasingly better at solving problems on the job by relaxing a little outside of work with a book.
Thank you to, Brett Habing, for asking me to write a post about the significance of reading who I know has had success as a Salesforce Admin and BA by reading.
