Don't waste your time traveling to work/school!

9 replies
Hello everyone.

Everyday I spent two hours in public transport. Yesterday I was thinking about how useless those two hours are and how I can fill those hours with internet marketing. Then it hit me, I've got a iPhone and earphones, why don't I just download audio files and listen to them ?

So I just used the search option on the WarriorForum and found a lot of free audio files. You can downloaded the files and copy them onto your Mp3-player/iPhone/iPad/whatever.

Today I had a two hour ride and learned a lot . I'm definitely going to do this more often! I suggest you to do the same.

Just use the Warrior Forum search files, set filter on "search term in thread title", and just fill in "Free audio". This will give you a lot of free quality content for when you're on the road.

Jerrel.

    I download BBC podcasts and I listen to them whenever I feel I am wasting time.

    They're normally really interesting and I get to learn a lot from them

      I don't know that I'd waste time traveling to work, but I think it would be fun to time travel back to school. You could really mess with people that used to annoy you. Heck, forget that. Just slip yourself a note with some stock recommendations.

        Also, depressingly, if you spend two hours every day on a five day week (10 hours) and work 48 weeks of the year, you spend 480 hours a year on the train. If you, for example, do an 8 hour day, that's the same as going to work for 60 days.

        If you utilised that time, you would gain two months of work time. Or a full 20 days of your life.

        Sorry, I'm not sure that's what you wanted to hear but it's a lot of time you can put to good use over a year period.

    Nice! I like that...I do the same in my car.

    You can also read something. My dad always pushed me to do so
    Especially on my daily commute. Maybe you could also
    Catch up with your classes?

      My mom never let me read in a moving vehicle. She says it damages eyesight trying to focus while moving. I don't know if it's true, but I never developed the habit of reading while on the move.

        Is she an optometrist / ophthalmologist? If so, I'd listen. If not...

        ...no, reading in a vehicle will not damage your eyesight. If that was the case, scanning down a page where the font sizes and colors change would accomplish the same feat.

        For that matter, scrolling down a page would do the same. Your eyes are made to refocus, and aside from being irritating and tiring, your eyesight will not suffer long-term from short stints reading in a vehicle.

    Never thought of that. And I didn't know that there are audio files in the forum. I will surely download some and give it a go. As I have some to spare when I'm in the transports.
