Two years ago, I made a New Year’s resolution to read one self development book per month. That lasted one month. New Year’s resolutions are made to be broken, right? It bothered me though. I just could not find the time in the day to read.
Audiobooks? I tried that too. I’d put an audio book on my iPod and run with my book. That lasted half a mile. Boooring. I need music when I work out. So… that didn’t work out.
Then I started listening in my car. Game changer. It just makes sense.
I was driving a total 1 hour and 30 minutes every day of the week and most of that time was spent idly listening to the radio or Pandora. So, I found the time! No excuses now.
I didn’t bother with a resolution because we know those are meant to be broken and I didn’t want to ruin the productivity train I just boarded. In a few short months, I’ve read 5 books! All self development. (Do you call it reading when it’s an audiobook? Or is it listened to? Doesn’t sound as smart.)
I would like to recommend one in particular that I enjoyed, written by a blogger I admire.
This book was hilarious. Jenny Lawson tells great stories. I especially like her style of writing. I laughed with her, was outraged with her, and was sad with her.
