Consuming information today is similar to picking what to watch on Netflix - there are just too many options and not enough time to waste. This raises two questions: 1) Who do I listen to? 2) Where do I find the time to learn outside of my already-too-busy life?
One of the most liberating feelings is knowing what you didn't know in the past which could've (and will) change your life. The ratio of "Eureka" moments I've had while listening to a podcast in comparison to in the class room is, well, ridiculous.
The Time Hack
Think about the last time that you listened to music. Was it A) Five minutes ago? B) On our way to the gym? C) At the gym? D) While you were showering?
If you answered yes to one or all of the above, take a break from "One Dance" and "Famous" you have at least 20-30 minutes a day to committing to learning something new from a podcast. All it takes is replacing the music you listen to in your down time and daily commute with a podcast. Even if you don't learn something new, hearing the perspective of successful people can help you realize things you can improve on to better your quality of life.
