Today I selected my podcast of the month, I know the month is practically over but I used my power of perception and decided to recommend a fast, easy & informative podcast for your review. Of course I can only categorize it as a nice easy listen due to the length of each episode. It’s not too long but also not too short. The time is filled with useful excerpts from various teachings by the founder mixed in with interviews from leading authorities on business and personal development.
I chose to finish this month with a podcast whose name may be familiar to many of you but if not, I get the honor of introducing you. Before I let my choice be known, I wanted to share the reason for my selection of a podcast. The purpose of this blog is to motivate and inspire. One of the issues with this purpose for today’s society is that many people are pulled in several different locations and allow themselves to become overwhelmed and/or filled with anxiety over the process of personal development. Podcasts are a great small step up the ladder towards achieving your dreams. I use the ladder analogy because when climbing ladders, we often fall backwards when we try to skip more than 2-3 rungs. This skipping motion sets us off balance and thus we end up right back where we began. The trick to successfully climbing the ladder is to take it one rung at a time.
Henceforth, I am beginning with a podcast entitled Entreleadership. The podcast is built around the teachings of Dave Ramsey from his Entreleadership Master Class as well as the book of the same name. Please note this is a podcast I enjoy but that doesn’t guarantee you will. It is your choice to give it a try. It is a free podcast and you can listen from any of your tech devices.
Here are my tips for listening to podcasts:
1. Always have paper and pen available, you never know when something which is said will strike you as relevant to your circumstance or the trajectory of your goals (I prefer to keep my notes together in a lined journal);
2. Don’t be afraid to listen more than one time until you feel you have satisfactorily absorbed the information being offered and your reason for selecting that topic;
3. Make it a routine, choose a time frame to listen which is conducive to listening to the episode in its entirety. Selecting a time frame will allow you to make this a part of your daily agenda.
Well that is my selection for the month, listen and tell me what you think. Do you have any suggestions for a great listen? Leave me a comment and I will follow-up.
