To double your income, triple your rate of learning – Robin Sharma.
I never understood the importance of learning in school.
The phase where society emphasized learning so much didn’t teach me the real application of learning.
It was only when I stepped into the real world that I realized the importance of real learning.
All the great leaders of the world are great readers. They learn a lot.
Bill Gates reads about 50 books a year, Mark Cuban reads for more than 3 hours everyday, Elon Musk gave the credit of his success to his reading habits, Warren Buffett spends most of his time reading, Mark Zuckerberg and Oprah Winfrey also are avid readers.
Steve Siebold has found in his research that rich people spend most of their time learning and the most common way they educate themselves is through reading.
But technology has removed many barriers who do not like reading. Apart from reading long books, there are also other sources of learning like podcast, YouTube videos and blogs.
Hence, in order for you to skyrocket your success, you need to become expert at learning.
Here are 3 killer hacks to become an unstoppable learning machine.
No no, I haven’t paid any money to any institute for a course. I just listen to podcasts and books while I commute to my work.
Lets say your travel to workplace takes 35 minutes. So in whole day, you have travelled more than a hour.
Now most people give excuses that they don’t have enough time to learn and read.
Just imagine what if they put that 1 hour in listening audiobooks and podcasts of their interest. They could have easily added extra hour in their day which they normally waste sleeping or gossiping.
Here are top 15 podcasts for entrepreneurs for you to begin with.
They offer 1 month free trial and then provide subscription service per month. You can get your first book free at these websites.
Who said you cannot learn while commuting?
Stop making these lame excuses in this age of advanced technology.
Search for deals on Buck books and Amazon.
Worried about spending money on costly books?
Buckbooks and Amazon are here for your rescue.
When you subscribe to Buckbooks newsletter, you get frequent deals of books available only for Rs. 60. Last year, I read 15 of their books for 800 rupees which could have costed me around 5000 rupees if I would have bought directly.
Isn’t that amazing?
Another resource is Amazon kindle unlimited.
With Kindle unlimited, you can have access to over 1 million titles on your kindle device for just Rs. 150 a month.
That means you could easily read 4 books a month with a price of just 1 book.
What can be a better deal than this?
Subscribe to blogs.
Blogs are a great way to increase your knowledge in any area for free. There are blogs on every topic you can imagine.
If it is fitness, it’s Nerd Fitness, if it is finance, it’s Cashoverflow, if it is motivation, it’s Addicted2success, if it is career, it’s Prolificliving, if it is fashion and lifestyle, it’s Akanksha Redhu.
What special about blogs is that they provide 90% of valuable information for free. All you have to do is subscribe to their list by providing your name and email address and you’ll start receiving free articles staright to your inbox.
Blogs are created by anyone who is an an expert in that field.
Moreover, blogs are short around 500-2000 words hence you can easily consume valuable information in 5-10 minutes which makes them super popular these days.
So stop making excuses about the lack of time and become a learning machine this year by applying the above resources to triple your income.
