I’ve taken a step back from following all the podcasts I’d been listening to, for obvious reasons. I have the 3 I listen to, to keep up with the news… And that’s it. At a certain point, reading more news stories will only make me less effective. In 2015 I set out to read a book a week, and ended up reading 83 books. In order to keep my sanity, I plan to attempt this project again this year.
A little over a year ago I embarked on a journey. I noticed that I was listening to a LOT of podcasts: on my commute, at work, on the treadmill, cooking. I really couldn’t stop. What made me notice the frequency was the fact that I had finished the backlog of This Week in Startups and saw that I had a lot of empty time… So I decided to try Audible and began eating up books like they were candy, well, now I think they are - which is nice.
