YOUR COLLEGE ON WHEELS by June McHardy
It is said that once most people leave school they make the decision that their learning days are over. Most of them will seldom ever read another non-fiction book, therefore missing out on one of the greatest resources for boosting their career goals. They don't realize that reading and constantly learning will keep them mentally alert and younger, their memory will improve, they'll be more decisive, smarter and quicker - in short, constant learning is considered one of the prime success skills.
...And reading books about a specific subject that is of interest to you regarding your career can give you an added bonus! When you study and learn more about a favorite topic you give your confidence a boost. You can very quickly become an authority in the field. Do you think that this would advance your career goals? You bet it would!
Another tip is to try always to read material written by someone with hands-on experience in the field, rather than just theory. The same things goes for seminars or courses. The person who has been "through the mill" has a lot more to offer you.
By now you're probably saying "But I just don't have the time to read any books!" Well, one way would be to reduce the amount of time you spend reading the newspaper or watching TV. . . or you could get up a half hour earlier each day to read undisturbed and, as Brian Tracy says, "milk the golden hour"
But by far the most powerful way of finding the time to read is making your car your "College on Wheels". We all know that we spend thousands of hours a year driving to and from work. Most people will listen to the radio. But what if you took this time to listen to books on tape? Or what if you listened to tapes on your subjects of interest by experts in the field? By the end of the year you could have the equivalent of 2 college semesters! Another added bonus of listening to tapes in your car is that the stress of the drive will decrease and you'll actually arrive feeling more refreshed and relaxed.
Careful though, you can become addicted to this successful habit! So start now. It's never too late to become success-oriented!
