When I walk, I listen to music or podcasts, well, sometimes I listen to nature, but usually it’s music or podcasts. I walk for at least an hour every single day, and to me, walking has become part of how I work. I use my time walking to get ideas, to take notes, and to get creative. Walking helps me with almost everything, it doesn’t matter if I’m having a bad hair day, or if I’m preparing myself for a major presentation.
When I walk, I keep talking to myself. I listen to my voice and how it sounds. Nobody can hear it, but I’m saying every word out loud. Sometimes it’s just like I’m dreaming. I see the cars, the people, and the birds go by so incredible fast, and then I blink, and I see them all go by really slow. I keep saying that it’s the music, or the voices from the podcasts, that are taking me to new places.
When I walk, the sun is always shining, even when it’s completely dark outside, and the rain is pouring down. It’s because I’m never actually there. I’m always somewhere else. I’m where the podcast is taking me, it might be in Costa Rica along with Srinivas Rao and his Blogcast FM or in Floriday with Scott Smith and his The Daily Boost.
When I walk, I listen to the following podcasts:
Podcasts about marketing
- Man vs Debt (investing)
- Social Triggers Insider
- Smart Passive Income
- Marketing over Coffee
- Internet Marketing Mogul (not updated in 2012)
- The BeanCast Marketing Podcast
Podcasts about Personal Development
Podcasts about Writing
When I walk, I get the feeling that I can do anything. Listening to podcasts motivates me, and it makes me feel that I belong. Listening to podcasts is one of the best ways to learn.
Now, let me ask you this; do you listen to podcasts?
If you do, I’d love to add some more awesome podcasts to my list.
