Have you started your “university on wheels” yet?

When I first heard the phrase "university on wheels"
from one of America's top business speakers - Brian
Tracy, it didn't sink in, until I thought deeply about it.
He was referring to the powerful value we can get
listening to professional audio books while driving to
work each morning.
You see, most people "waste" as many as 2 or more hours
every single day commuting to work. During this time
they do nothing other than hum to themselves (leaving
their minds empty) all of the way commuting to work.
Some that turn on the radio while driving to work spend
the time listening to music.
Now... here's a pleasant, yet scary fact -
Do you know that just listening to the right
professional audio books each and every morning as you
commute to work will be equivalent to a full university
education within some years?!
I know it might not make sense to you just yet, but
stay with me while I try to explain why I said that.
You see, for some university degree programs, students
spend no more than 10 hours weekly attending their
lectures. And after a few years they are given their
And what do they do during these 10 hours each week?
You guessed it - they "listen" to their lecturers!
You can get the exact same value from just listening to
the right audio books in the field or area of expertise
you want to learn about.
I realize that no university will give you a degree
certificate after you have completed your chosen audio
books, but you would have enriched yourself with this
new knowledge.
There are certain professional audio book programs that
will give you examinations after completing their
training programs... and will give you a certificate for
passing their course.
Many such certificates can be used in certain places to
give evidence of your expertise in that area.
In that case, why would you continue to "waste"
valuable time on your daily commute to work when you can
"kill 2 birds with one stone" by using the same hours to
learn a new skill, a new business idea, a new
profession, etc?
To get started, ask yourself what new skill or
expertise you would love to learn. When you are certain
of your answer, hop online and search for any audio book
series in that area.
You are sure to find valuable information on the
Internet related to this to get you started on your
"university on wheels" program.
The fact that audio books come in both CD, cassette and
downloadable formats give you options to choose from. If
you have a CD player in your car or cassette player, you
can choose any.
Even if you don't drive to work but take the bus to
work, you can easily get a portable CD, cassette or Mp3
player and still benefit from your "university on
wheels" program.
Who knows... if you dedicate the time to follow
through, you will be an expert in that area of expertise
in no time at all!
All thanks to the advent of audio books.
To your Personal and Professional Success !
