Being Informed, the Illusion of Intelligence in Business
Keeping informed of what is going on at work, your industry, and events’ happening around you creates the illusion of intelligence. One doesn’t need to be a world scholar to read a blog or scan a press release. Business reports, company emails, and social media information streams past us on a daily basis.
Intelligent individuals learn to manage their information and develop a routine to gather and absorb information. Take 10-minutes a day to read industry blogs, press releases, and review the company’s web site. You’ll be surprised what you can learn or didn’t learn by just reading your own web site. Being informed about your career and what’s going on in life will give you a competitive edge in the word of business and among co-workers.
