University On Wheels

Make Your Car a University On Wheels!!

One of the things I remember from one of the Brian Tracy programs I listened to was his suggestion of making your car a university on wheels.  For those that have a long commute this is an excellent idea and I highly recommend using your time on your commutes to enrich yourself with personal and professional development information. If it’s not obvious this means audio programs. I don’t want anyone reading this and then heading out on the road to read one of the latest books by your favorite personal and professional development author while you cruise along in traffic. This is NOT ok, but I still see knuckleheads doing it.  Wouldn’t this be a great idea to pass the time behind the wheel? So how long is your commute?

My commute is a good hour to an hour and a half each way and it’s safe to say this is a part of my life that sucks!! One of the recommendations Anthony Robbins makes in his books and tape programs is to change your focus on life by asking better and more empowering questions. He suggests doing this when you have something in your life that is a bad experience or as I like to say  “just sucks”.  In this case the question I’ve asked myself to change my view on my commute is “How can I make this commute more enjoyable and make it a good thing?”  My answer is to take Brian Tracy’s advice and make my car my university on wheels. What an awesome way to take an annoying and frustrating event in your life and make it a positive one.

How many hours a day do you spend in your car? How frustrating is it to be having to deal with the traffic and the bonehead drivers? It’s pretty darn frustrating and for me it’s one of the main motivating factors in my pursuit to be a professional blogger. I’m D O N E with the whole commuting thing. I have discovered though that the commute is much more bearable if I’m putting it to good use and feeding myself good stuff by listening to personal and professional development audio programs. I’m currently listening to Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles(TM)” and it’s made a huge difference in the quality of my otherwise long and dreary commute.

If you’re not sure which program to start with Continuously Improving You has a link to its reading list which has list of all of the books and audio programs I’ve found to be full of great content.
