Clichés exist for a reason
"Readers are leaders"
"Top CEOs read an average of XXX books a year"
There are plenty of cheesy, cat-poster-like sayings and stats about the value of reading. It doesn't mean they aren't true!
Here's a great list of top books for partner leaders, compiled by Mark Brigman of Partnernomics. Check it out.
(I'm always a fan of reading well beyond the scope of business and productivity books too. I can't think of a time a good book - fiction or non - didn't give me new mental models and help me in many aspects of life.)
Yeah, you're in the right business
These kind of projections get shared a lot, but heck, we never get tired of them!
Knowing you're working right smack in the middle of a massive trend is not only encouraging and exciting, it can help you think more clearly and make better strategic decisions.
If you had been able to see past trends coming, what would you have done?

Quote of the Day
“I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.”
-- Douglas Adams
