Digital Transformation 101:
You never start with technology.
First, define your "Why?"
Then, make sure the human beings in your organization understand that "Why"
Your Digital Strategy is doomed to fail without solid purpose and people.
@TwitterSpaces I get it. I know what you are trying to do w/ the podcasts, etc. But I loved just clicking the spaces tab to "see what's live right now to join the conversation."
You took serendipity away and now it feels too impersonal. :(
You don't need to slog at job that you don’t like, even if the pay is high.
- A job that you love
- Work on your craft
- Save and Invest as much as you can
You will look forward to it every day
While securing your financial future.
Spent the day at @MITMuseum doing some network “optimization” —- completely unnecessary but very satisfying.
Most of my time I’m thinking big picture, but I also believe leaders in tech need to keep their hands dirty or else become irrelevant
This is amazing. So valuable and they are updated it in almostreal time. Clearest visualization of the chaotic disruptions I've seem... Coming from an individual citizen. Bravo.

That moment of panic when you see "8:30" out of the corner of your eye and think it's 8/30 and you only have 33 days before @MITMuseum is open to the public...
...not that 41 days is any less terrifying 😱
This is going to be 🔥!... Going to be diving into the future of immersive experience w@erodleyy this week.
No holds barred, ... We are going to get into good examples and the horrible mistakes #musetechhtwitter.com/i/spaces/1ypKd…s
Reading faster gives you access to more insight, inspiration, and understanding.
It takes lots of practice, but it's worth it!

Tldr; how to read faster
1. Read less
2. Fast modes
4. Make a map
5. Power words
6. No mind talking
7. Read with fingers
8. Banish boring books
9. 20/10 rule for resting
10. Summarize your findings
10. Summarize to a friend
Immediately after reading a chapter, stop and summarize (out loud) what you just read. Tell a friend - or tell a voice recorder.
Explain it like you would to a 5-year old.
Simpler is better - if you can simplify, you can understand.
6. Get that voice out of your head
Don't "subvocalize" as you read - sounding out the words in your head as you read is just slamming the brakes on your reading speed.
This is the hardest thing to unlearn.
There's no way around this.
This takes practice.
5. Focus on power words
When you are reading, look out for the keywords:
- Ignore filler words (ex. articles, "a" "the")
- Nouns > verbs > adjectives > adverbs
- domain-specific words are signals
- note new words
4. Create a roadmap
Look at the table of contents. Understand the chapter titles. Make an outline. Skim bold headlines. Review illustrations.
It's easier to go faster when you know where you are headed.
Audio books are great for interstitial moments - commutes, walks, vacuuming the house.
Not all books are great for it, though - especially if you want to take notes on something.
Self-help & some fiction (if well acted) works great in audio for me.
E-Books are perfectly fine.
1. Read less to read more
Your filter for books should be razor thin.
You have a list of 100 books you think you should read. I promise you _maybe_ only 1 of them is worth your time.
The fastest way to finish a book is not to read it.
Research shows that there is a trade-off between speed and accuracy when reading.
However, most books give only 20% new knowledge; the rest is filler.
By speed reading, you identify and skim the most valuable info from a book.
Warning: This is not for pleasure reading. This is not for 100% comprehension and recall. You shouldn't speed read if your job requires remembering every detail in a book.
These techniques are for busy people who want to introduce efficient learning techniques into their lives.
