Welcome to my first “The 10” post!

I love reading, and I love learning. I probably read books or articles or listen to audiobooks, podcasts and courses an hour every day or more. You can guess based on what I write that I read a lot of content in certain areas – sports and sports medicine, youth sports, health, exercise Steaming-cup-of-coffee-The-10and fitness, productivity and performance, and social media and communication. Some of these articles become blog posts, some become topics for podcast discussions, and others just interest me. I thought that I would start sharing what I read with you.

I hope you find these lists interesting and inspiring. Feel free to pass on any articles you find to me on Twitter or Facebook, and I might share them in one of these posts (and credit you).

So grab a cup of coffee and read some of these articles! I’m probably reading articles right now that I’ll share soon!
