Increase Your Performance By Joining “Audible” Now

Have a lot of books you want to read and can’t seem to find the time? Then you need to download Audible now.

This simple life hack allowed me to listen to 25 books in 2018. I commute to work 25-30 minutes a day and most of the time I’m listening to a book that I feel will help me increase my performance in one way or another. Whether it be in relationships, sales, negotiations, daily habits, motivation, and sometimes just a good story. One of my favorites this past year was “Shoe Dog,” by Phil Knight who founded Nike.

Many of these books I listened to and loved them so much I bought the print version. Its great to hear the book and then have the print version to help understand concepts a bit more. I feel like the best way to learn is to hear it, see it, practice it, and then teach it.
