I have my usual list of magazines: Time, Runners World, Bicycling, Tritahlete, plus the occasional others. And of course, there is my daily reading list of : Jamaica Observer, Jamaica Gleaner, Trinidad Guardian, Trinidad Express, New York Times, Sun-Sentinel -- and now and then I read the Barbados Advocate.

I am also using Google and Yahoo Alerts to tell me when there is any mention of Human Resources and various Caribbean countries. I also look to see where my firm's name has been mentioned, of late using a Google alert.

I think I must be crazy to try to read this much...! But, it is fun.

  • Francis - Your blogs constantly inspire me but this list of "Books I am Reading Now" plus your daily list of newspapers, magazines, audio, ebooks, Google alerts etc. boggles my mind. I don't think you're crazy for reading as much as you do; I just want to know HOW you read as much as you do. What is your secret to finding the time? I'm interested in sharing this information with the people who work with me. Would you please share a little bit about the logistics of your day. Once again thanks for taking the time to Blog.

  • Marcia,

    For time management, I use a system called Getting Things Done invented by David Allen.

    It is quite good -- just about the best there is.
