News Bytes are here to boost your industry knowledge with timely tech stories based on the news.

If you don’t believe me, maybe you will listen to Warren Buffet.  Buffet shares that he “Read 500 pages every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.”

Buffet makes reading a top priority in his daily routine, allocating about 80% of his day to reading, far less time than when he began his career as an investor.

While you may not be able to implement 500 pages of reading into your daily routine, start small.

Rather than scrolling through media that isn’t serving you, fill idle time with reading blogs or books to increase your awareness about current industry issues.

In about five minutes, reading our quick News Bytes will ensure that you continually expand your industry knowledge while reading timely stories.
