A Reading List That (Actually) Gets Read
FEBRUARY 26, 2014
When I teach a workshop or give a talk, I often get asked for a reading list or for a suggestion on topics I tend to focus on: business strategy, UX, CX, and change. So I’ve composed this reading list for experience, design, and strategy based on what’s most readable and reference-able.
Reading List additions

For the Revolution Reading List, I strongly encourage you to read Amy Edmondson’s Teaming , it’s a great review of the needed changes for organizations to embrace innovation. For no specific list, but as a book that was really transformational for my thinking, Todd Rose’s The End of Average really helped point out the problems with our current obsession with simplistic evaluations of people.

BBC Column: The psychology of the to-do list
FEBRUARY 5, 2013
This seemingly simple point is based around far more than a simple filing cabinet and a to-do list. Allen’s system is like a to-do list in the same way a kitten is like a Bengal Tiger. The current task list is a special kind of to-do list because all the tasks are defined by the next action you need to take to progress them. This simple idea is remarkably effective in helping resolving the kind of inertia that stops us resolving items on our lists.

SEPTEMBER 8, 2008
Do you have a to-learn list? A to-learn list is like a curriculum. I have dozens of to-learn lists. Lists are handy for recording one’s reflections at a point in time, but theyÂ constrain dealing with life as it comes. What guides me is not so much ticking off items on a to-learn list as becoming more proficient at what I do. Sticking to a list might keep me from delving into vital areas I am not currently aware of.
[2b2k] Are mailing lists for the old?
DECEMBER 1, 2011
It does make me wonder, though, how much of the online world relies upon mailing lists as heavily as I do, and whether this is a generational difference. I’m on about a dozen active mailing lists, I think, although it’s possible the number is much higher. There are fields in which most of what I’ve learned has come from mailing lists, some of which I’ve been on for well over ten years.

JANUARY 15, 2011

Coinstar's list of unacceptable items seems to have been written by Tim Burton
AUGUST 14, 2016
Its list of unacceptable items is quite odd, presumably intentionally. I’d think that this is based on things people have actually tried to shove into Coinstar slots, except I don’t see “fishing line with gum at its end” or “your dick”on the list.
