What do you do while you drive?
Well next time you’re driving try this because you will learn a lot in a short amount of time!
Start This Good Habit
Most people want to learn about something they’re passionate about or something they think is interesting.
If you’re someone who falls into that majority of people I suggest doing it while you drive. Why? Simple. What else are you going to do while you drive? You’re probably going to listen to music and although that’s nice it’s not productive at all.
Turn your car rides to and from work or school into something that is productive. Doing this allows you to learn more in less time through the day. You’re going to drive anyway so why not make it productive and actually learn something from it?
What I Listen to
This is what I listen to in the car usually:
More specifically when it comes to audio books these are the titles I’m reading or have read in the past few months:
- The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod
- 6 months to 6 figures by Peter J. Voogd
- Getting Beyond Better by Roger L. Martin
- The Bazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King
- Finders Keepers also by Stephen King (part of the Mr. Mercedes trilogy)
- The first six books in the Drizzt seriesby R.A. Salvatore
It’s not all serious when it comes to my book selection because I enjoy stories as well as motivational pieces & self help books.
When it comes to podcasts here are some of my favorites:
- The Gary Vee Audio Experience by Vayner Media
- Todd.Live for live video marketing
- Views with David Dobrik & Jason Nash (comedic podcast)
- I also listen to many others but not as consistent as these three
What Should you do?
My suggestion to you is get on Audible or whatever you currently use or would like to use for listening to and streaming audio books and give it a try. Most companies & services like Audible will actually give you a free book no matter what the price of that book is. I highly suggest Audible as it’s what I use for all my audio books.
Also, find some podcasts to listen to. I don’t suggest too many unless you have the time to actually listen to them all. The goal should be to keep up with the content the artist is putting out on a podcast. You don’t want to miss many episodes unless they’re totally off topic.
What do you Want to Learn?
Find out something you’re interested in learning that is easily conveyed in audio form. A bad example of something to learn is how to program or develop software because the examples won’t be viable and the reader will have to read the examples to you. That’s a very bad practice to learn software development.
Any of the following are good to learn while driving via audio book:
- Writing (how to)
- Analytics (for marketing)
- Anything motivational
- Most self help content
- Anything you want to learn that isn’t strictly visual
- How something is made
- Why something occurs
- Literally anything that’s not visual…start googling audio books
That’s All There is
It’s a huge deal to make the most of any driving time you have. Most people listen to music in the car and they could be doing so much more they’ve always wanted to do but don’t realize it. Start listening to productive or educational audio while in the car driving. It will make a world of difference to everyone I guarantee it. I learned a great morning routine from it as well as how to be a better writer. Try it out!
I reply to everyone so start a conversation, ask me questions, and whatever else you’d like!
