The Beauty of Amazon Audible!

Amazon Audible, a Wonderful Thing!

Amazon Audible is such a beautiful thing. For many people it is old news, but I’m finding that there are still so many people that do not utilize this amazing tool. In today’s society reading is becoming a thing of the past, and for many, that is detrimental to them, the future, and the youth.

As we are being more and more conditioned to require incoming information to only be in short clips or meme’s, we are loosing creativity. The ability for the mind to detach and focus on one thing at a time is going away from the development of so many of us.

Amazon Audible is that beautiful middle ground that feeds the abundant information that can be found in books. Without the requirement of actually reading.

Reading VS Listening.

Don’t get me wrong here, I strongly encourage conventional reading for everyone, but at the same time, audiobooks are extremely useful for information consumption. The ability to turn the 15 minute commute to work into story time is so powerful, it’s inconceivable!

Being able to “read” one, two, or even three books a month, simply by pressing play on the way to work. It can emphatically change a persons life in a matter of months.

For most people, conventional reading is just hard. There are more people that just can’t seem to sit still and focus on what they are reading for more than 10 minutes at a time. Which ends with them not reading anything at all. Reading is great for the mind and development of creativity. So I am encouraging for everyone to find time to read.

Why do CEO’s read so much?

It isn’t private information that most CEO’s and Entrepreneur’s read for an exponential amount of time each day. Guys like Mark Cuban which has been know to say that he reads for at least 3 hours a day! I don’t know about you, but to me that is a lot!

We have all seen the many, many posts on the reading habits of the ultra-successful people. This isn’t a motivational post to pump you up and say if you want to be successful you need to read like them.

This post is more to encourage those of us who don’t read like those “ultra-successful people.”

The Opportunity Found in Audible!

Audible by Amazon gives those of us that don’t read as quickly as others the same opportunity to the information. It has been said before that the sum of man’s knowledge can be found in books. I don’t completely agree with that. But at the same time, it does give an important impression that we should all think about.

Education and the ability to read and write is something that there are many in the world that are not as fortunate to have. This ability does give people an advantage and to squander that is a sad thing.

So, if you aren’t the greatest and fastest reader in the world. Don’t give up hope and the advantage. Think outside the box and look at it from a different angle. There is always a solution, we just have to want it! I’d encourage you to try out Amazon Audible if you are like me in this aspect. It has been a huge help to me and it could be for you too! Try reading with you ears here!
