I mean this in two ways. First, read news and know what’s going on in the world. Second, read books. Doing both is important in all facets of life.
As for news, read whatever you like, such as the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Washington Post or other papers. Better yet, read or skim two, preferably with different takes, such as being left or right leaning. Reading different points of view … Read More
