Have You Started Your "University on Wheels" Yet?

by : Juliette Lee

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 degrees.

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.
