The number ONE question I get asked is what I read. My fantastic job IS to read. I am incentivized to read the right things. In some ways, my filters — what I DO NOT READ — may be even more important than what I do read.
I am a trend follower so I am in the drafting business.
I am an open book when it comes this stuff. I am all about you joining my peloton if you behave and follow some basic rules of the road.
Here is the list I share in my presentations:
No matter how much I share and no matter how real time I share it, my strategy will be doubted by enough people to leave me with an edge.
My ultimate edge comes down to my eyes and ears, the network I have made, the people I work most closely with everyday, the wins, the losses and the long miles on the road to get face time with smart people.
Oh, and I write everyday. Try that first no matter what your strategy is.
