Gotta drive for endless hours?
Sirius 90’s not gonna cut it?
Singing songs with your family a certain death?
One more podcast… to add to the list… perhaps…
I, of course, would recommend Fatherhood for the Rest of Us.
This round I chose to use Audible & listen to some books that had been gathering *digital dust* – it’s a thing.
So, while Meg helped me navigatetraffic & kept the boys in line, helped them eat, adjust the ipads and listened to shows of her own selecting I listened to the following books:
The Science of Getting Rich – Wallace Waddle-
free here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur9GR9Q_6Xc
Anyone who has read Think and grow Rich who hasn’t tried this one out is missing out.
I currently have it on a daily rotation… feel free to ask me why.
Mind Hacking: How to Change Your Mind for Good in 21 Days
This book is great for anyone who is into computers and looking to change some habits.
There was a lot for me to align with in here… primarily how life changed for the author after he quit drinking.
Creating Behavior That Lasts – Becoming the Person You Want to Be
This book is for the person who wants to be gently coached and achieve things at their own pace… it reminded me of something like “Therapy +”
It is actually more impactful than that… however… the final book in the list made it seem more like “Therapy +” (We are not there yet)
One of the best lines in here was something along the lines of:
Are you being a professional at work and an amateur at home?
Now – I wasn’t aware of this feature prior to our trip but there was a Prime Members option to listen to streaming books – playlists… pretty awesome… upon inspection one of the channels was “You & Improved”
Within that list I found Buddhism for Beginners… well now, this is up my alley. I knew a few things regarding Buddhism, but this book brought to light, illuminated…. enlightened me if you will on a number of topics, thoughts or ideas as they related.
Pretty cool that I was able to stream this one for free… perhaps you will be able to as well?
Finally, and I have to be honest I had been waiting for this one and prayed that I would be able to hear the whole thing on the ride home…
Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable
Punctuated by an F-Bomb or A-Hole from timeto time, it was filled with good humor and a don’t waste my time attitude…
This book is for the person who doesn’t want to have their hand held, they want to be pushed off the wall… for the person who has been thinking they have been pushing themselves, but after listening to this book realizes they have been peddling nonsense and needs to up the ante, grab their balls and dip them in steel.
One of the lines in this book that cracked me up was:
It’s not whether or not your glass is half full or half empty, you either have something in the glass or you don’t.
Do audible books take the place of actually reading them?
Will listening to books as you drive along 95 for hours at a time help you become a more productive driven member of society?
Who cares… but that’s how this trip rolled!
