Well said, Shane:

Another way to learn things and get perspective is to read. And frankly, compared to most of the meetings I’ve been in, reading is better use of time.

Not only are you learning something, but you’re learning about it in depth from someone who, in all likelihood, put a lot of time and effort into organizing their thoughts.

Compare that with the sound bytes tossed around in meetings. Who has time for critical thought? How much do you really learn from that hour?

If you assume that smarter workers are better workers, reading might in fact be the best use of time.
