>>Audio on 2x speed<<
Possibly one of the biggest benefits and NeTime productivity leverage in my life has been the double compounded benefit of audio, on 2x speed. I’ve never been a fast reader, and never enjoyed reading that much.
At the end of 2005 I started reading non-fiction, personal development books, and it changed my life.
As you get more into learning and reading, the world opens up to you. You read a book and all of a sudden there’s four more you’ve bought from Amazon and your library gets bigger and bigger with so many books unread and even many books started and on the go at the same time.
It can soon start to get overwhelming. You have to take time out of your day to read, and whilst it’s definitely a high KRA, it’s still a sacrifice unless it is what you love to do the most.
When you listen to the same book on audio, you can NeTime. You could be in the gym, travelling, relaxing at home, writing, surfing the net and social, even cooking, cleaning or loading the dishwasher, and listening to valuable education material that is going straight into your unconscious mind and into your habits. All good. And then I found the 2x button: the little button on iTunes or audible that doubles the speed of the audio.
At first it felt like I couldn’t take it in and had the audio on fast-forward. So I started with simple or conceptual books, or books I’d read before, to train my brain to take it in. After a while, 2x speed became the new normal, and normal speed sounds like the author is having a mild stroke.
You can literally and in a handsfree, NeTime manner, programme your unconscious mind for success. From January to mid November of this year this little NeTime technique has enabled me to consume 109 books at an average duration of 5 hours. That’s 545 hours of learning that too No Extra Time to consume. Start using this technique now. If you are reading this book, you can get it on audio too from iTunes and Audible.
>>Audio while taking your kids to school<<
You can use the same NeTime audiobook strategy for and with your kids. Get valuable learning audio on in the car as you take them to school. I play Golf audio with Bobby in the car, and I think that was part of the reason he became a world under 7 standard Golfer at 4 years old. What a great gift for your children.
Start early and there will be less resistance.
