Between all the clients and the frequent travels, life has become quite hectic. Time itself as a resource is limited and valuable, so we all need to be selective in how we spend it. On the other hand, success doesn’t come from ignorance. Time and effort need to be put into learning new things, keeping the focus and staying on top of your game. And that is why I am a big fan of podcasts. When you don’t have a lot of time for reading books, or don’t have the focus for watching videos, podcasts are the perfect tool for leveling up. There are a few better ways to multitask and to learn new things that podcasts.
