Finding Wisdom in the Unrelated

Wally Bock has sound advice: Read outside your field.

Consider how often you have discovered great insight on Topic A while reading about Topic Z.

As I have mentioned many times I am not an executive or a manager and there's a chance I will never be one. However reading this blog and Wally Brock and such allow me to understand better what my managers want and thereby allows me to anticipate their needs better and be a better employee.

This is good advice

You have a wise perspective. Too many people consider only what's on their desk and don't think of what managers must consider.

Great advice. I'd add read widely. I've often gotten great ideas from fictional works and biographies.

Good point. Those are some of the best sources.
