Each day the average American spends between one and two hours driving to and from work. Yearly we spend well over 300 hours of our lives in our car. It’s the equivalent of 38 work days of driving. Another way to look at it is 13 straight 24 hour days. Wow!
So the real question is what are you doing during that time? Are you listening to sports radio, news talk, or a cd you’ve heard a million times? Maybe you turn the music off and just enjoy the road. If you were to ask the typical employed person if he had time to add anything extra like college to his life, he would likely say of course not.
But what if you took the advice of some of the world’s great thought leaders like Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy, and Jim Rohn? Turn your car into a mobile classroom. Darren Hardy is well known for saying that his car doesn’t move without gas in the tank and an instructional cd in the player.
Each year is equivalent to two advanced courses in college. Imagine, the time you spend driving you could earn a PHD in leadership, sales, management, relationships, a second language, etc. Any subject you find significant you can receive more than enough instruction to become an expert in that particular field. The amazing thing is you do not have to find the extra time. It’s time you would be spending anyway; just driving.
Does this give you a competitive advantage over the guy who spends his mornings driving to work listening to talk show rants, commercials telling him how he can’t be happy until he buys his widget, and then flips over to a sad song about someone’s spouse leaving them? YOU BET!
Become a student driver.
