Are you a listener or a reader?

I think I have a preference for writing things down – being a reader – in a business context which is where Peter Drucker would ask people the question. However my theory is that I absorb information in the same detail whether I’m hearing it or reading it.

Are you a listener or a reader? He wrote about it a long time ago in The Effective Executive: The Definitive Guide to Getting the Right Things Done.

If you spend a bunch of time driving to go to and from wherevertheF*** you’re working you can lose your mind. Seriously, the winter they were measuring the snow accumulation in “Gronks” was probably when I started listening to books in the car. The next winter was when I discovered The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher. I appreciated listening to her narrate. Carrie definitely made the crazy commuting a little easier that year.

One of the more recent books I listened to was A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership. I pre-ordered that one. Yes, I’m an Audible subscriber.
