Your ability to manage your time, to focus and channel your energies on your highest value tasks, will determine your rewards and your level of accomplishment in life more than any other factor.
Your mind is your most precious asset. I believe it is essential to be continually working to increase the quality of your thinking. One of the best ways is to turn driving time into learning time. Listen to educational CDs or audio cassettes in your car. The average driver, according to the Automobile Association, drives 12,000 to 25,000 miles each year, that’s 500 to 1000 hours time spent each year in your car, equivalent to 12 ½ to 25 forty-hour weeks. That is the same as two full university terms spent behind the wheel of your car each year. You can apply this too if travel regularly by train, bus, plane etc.
If you did nothing but use your travelling time as learning time, this could make you one of the best educated people of your generation. Many people have gone from rags to riches simply by listening to audio programs as they travel to and from work.
In addition, for personal and professional development, attend as many seminars as you can. You can often save yourself 100’s of hours of reading and researching by attending a seminar given by an authority in his or her field. You can learn ideas, techniques and methods that can save you hours, days, even months of hard work and research on your own.
Remember, to earn more, you must learn more. Your outer world of results will always correspond to your inner world of preparation. Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field.
Here are two things you can do to put these ideas to work in your life immediately.
Purchase an audio program that can help you to be happier and more effective today. Begin listening to it immediately. Resolve never to listen to music in your car when you can turn driving time into learning time.
Seek out seminars and training programs given by experts in their field. Sit close to the front, take careful notes, and apply the best ideas that you learn immediately.
It is time now for you to take action and to really begin to change your life. Or you could do nothing. It is your choice. I am here to help you now that you are ready to change your life.
