I've noticed that people who read a lot of blogs and a lot of books also tend to be intellectually curious, thirsty for knowledge, quicker to adopt new ideas and more likely to do important work.
I wonder which comes first, the curiosity or the success?
One step missing here IMHO: curiosity - IMPLEMENTATION - success.
I know people who read a lot of blogs and a lot of books do nothing else than read. Once they have the "guts" to implement what they read they start to see the results and the success. Curiosity is not enough.
What do you think?
