The internet has made it so easy for us to get access to almost anything we want for free. Just above are links to world class speakers (free), amazing business learning materials (free), stupid but very funny pictures (free and giggle-worthy), body building and fitness workouts (free).
You know what else is free? Time. Motivation. Energy. It’s free but not always easy to make the time to learn something, to find the energy to do a workout, to find the motivation to start creating your own happiness.
We all make choices every day.
We make a choice to listen to a certain radio station in the car, when we could download a podcast that teaches us a new language instead.
We make a choice to watch the latest episode of whatever television show we find at the end of our remote or to engage in a meaningful conversation with someone who will enrich our lives.
Am I saying I never watch TV or listen to dodgy commercial radio? Of course not. But you’ll never hear me saying I don’t have time to learn. If I have an internet connection I have means, if I have 10 spare minutes I have opportunity, now all I ever need to worry about is motivation.
What’s stopping you?
