Watching the bestseller lists…

I love books and I enjoy visiting the bookstores at least once a week. One of the things that I love to watch is “what is on the bestseller lists.”  While I watch this list to see if I have missed anything recently, there is a lot more one can learn from watching the bestseller lists. Here are a few to start with:

1. If you are following these lists for a while, you can get some insights on the trends.

2. If there is a pattern that is emerging, then you can infer the general sentiment across a broad cross-section of people.

3. If you observe closely, you can start understanding what people are really concerned about at this point in time.

Then, you can see if this information can be meaningful for your own life or business or both.

Something to think about.
