Say Thank You When Stuck In Traffic
Published on September 23, 2014
As Jim Rohn once said, "In order to have more you must become more". Very simple philosophy but very powerful. I have shared the statistic before that it is reported a full 43% of college graduates never read another book after graduating. Considering this, it's not hard to see why so many people are stuck. Education is not something that can stop if we expect to grow. The necessity of continued learning is the cause and affect of everything. While not all of it takes place in a lecture hall there are opportunities to grow each and every day. You may be running this through your mind right now and wondering with work, your family, responsibilities and time constraints that may sound good but it's not practical to commit ourselves to continually learning. There is one place I know of where you are a captive audience and unable to do much less than press down on the accelerator or turn the steering wheel. Why not commit your wasted time to the University of Wheels. The average person spends 2 hours a day. I know many of my clients likely rack up 3 hours or more. Consider this. If you took advantage of the wasted commute time you could dedicate 520 hours a year to your degree of life. Imagine how much of the right information you would take in and how much it could improve your life to "become more". Don't just think about this, do this. Maybe next time you will say thank you when stuck in traffic. Have an excellent day.
