I know this sounds a bit like an excuse … and if you’ve been following TSMS for any length of time, you know how I feel about excuses .. but my intent is actually to provide a solution in this case. I really do struggle to read.
The times I typically sit down to dive into a book – on an airplane, right before bed, right after work – I end up falling asleep a few pages in.
Enter Audiobooks and/or Podcasts. Not only can I listen to them the normal times I would sit down and try to read, but I find they also help me maximize my potential learning time because I can listen to them when I normally COULDN’T sit down and read: while I’m walking through airports, doing some cardio on the treadmill, or when I’m getting ready in the morning. So give these audiobooks or podcasts a try the next time you sit down to “read” something:
Best Long-Form Self-Improvement Podcast
Best Short Form Podcast (quick interviews)
Best Podcast for Some Comedic Relief (where you might actually learn something too!)
Best Meathead Podcast
Best Overall Health and Fitness Podcast
Best Mix of Everything (funny, fitness, business, personal growth)
Best for Challenging Your Beliefs
Best Meditative Practice Podcast
Best Audiobook author (fiction)
Check these out and let me know what you think! Respond in the comments or via social media.
