Seven Life and Career Readings

By, 04/19/2012

A fair bit of life and career related news comes across my desk here at Fisher Investments. I often share useful stories or lessons with others throughout the firm, and I’ll plan to do that here going forward. The exact content will vary, but you can expect an array of jobs, life and career-related reading I found particularly noteworthy, interesting or useful. Enjoy.

  1. Here’s an interesting analysis of multitasking and how the brain works. Tony Schwartz at the Harvard Business Review takes it a step further.
  2. The secret ingredient of delicious BBQ? Teamwork.
  3. Willpower and self-control aren’t easy to master. But there are things you can do to help.
  4. The value of breadth and depth in a career.
  5. Do what you love.
  6. How to be a memory champion.
  7. At the end of the workday, stop working and go home.
