Most of New York’s commute to work is a disaster.
If you drive there’s traffic.
If you take the bus or train there is delays.
On an average it takes an hour to go to work each day and a hour to get home if you are lucky.
That’s if it is not the holiday season or bad weather.
I am not here to depress you. I am here to help you.
What Are You Doing During The Commute?
I am sometimes shocked when I hear someone say “I just sit in traffic and listen to the radio” on their commute to and from work.
What are you doing?
Are you serious?
That is 2 hours in average of time that is wasted everyday.
That is worse then watching tv all night when you get home from work.
You need to use that time wisely and get educated.
Listen To Audio Books
There is so much wisdom out there that us men is not taking advantage of.
So many great people that came before us laid out blueprints on how to succeed in life.
We are worshipping the wrong people in today’s society.
Books have so much information that we should be taking advantage of on a daily basis.
Biographies, self help, personal development audio books are great to educate yourself during your morning commute.
Don’t just stare at the car in front of you and get mad when someone cuts you off, do something positive.
Make gaining knowledge part of your daily routine.
Spotify got audio books for free on their app. Here are a few names to look up:
- Anthony Robbins
- Dale Carnegie
- Jim Rohn
- Brain Tracy
- Eckart Tolle
Listen To YouTube Videos or Podcasts
This is what I normally do during my commute.
I put on a YouTube video that I feel will better me for the moment.
Whether it has to do with fitness, personal development, or anything I want to learn.
Podcasts are great too because it will lower the risk of you getting in an accident.
You won’t be tempted to look at the video on your dash.
Learn A New Language, New Skill or Just Learn Something
You got a FULL 2 HOURS A DAY to gain information on any subject of your choice.
That is 10 hours a week for an average 9-5er.
That is 40 hours a week each month.
That’s 480 hours a year! Yes, I did the math.
It is said that you can learn a new skill in 20 hours of extreme focus.
Not be a pro but be good enough to do it well.
Make it happen and don’t be a zombie like the rest of the people you see driving in traffic or on the train.
I do understand that you are limited to what you can do while driving or taking public transportation but take advantage of the time you are wasting.
Time is the most important asset you have in your life.
Use it wisely and do something constructive during your commute to work.
