12 Habits That Take You To The Next Level – #4


This is the fourth of 12 posts on how the right habits can transform your performance to the next level. We are all at some level in terms of what we achieve. For many that level is far less than it could be. Given the right habits we can all achieve more, do more and succeed at levels we may now only imagine.

This series is inspired by the writing of Tomas Laurinavicius, a blogger and designer from Lithuania. His ideas are not new or revolutionary. They capture some basic ideas about habits that will take you to the next level of achievement.

Learning More – Listening to Podcasts

I must begin by admitting I do not practice this habit nearly enough. I have a short commute to work (about ten minutes) and have not set aside time elsewhere in the day to do this. I do listen to a podcast now and then, but have yet developed the habit.

It is a habit I want to cultivate. You can learn a great deal from podcasts. Here are the podcasts that Laurinavicius recommends:

The School of Greatness with Lewis Howes — Lewis interviews bestselling authors, top athletes, successful entrepreneurs and other inspiring individuals.

The Tim Ferriss Show — Tim talks with scientists, authors, entrepreneurs and people who change the world. Topics range from neuroscience to psychology to business and more.

The $100 MBA Show — real life business lessons in short form episodes with Omar Zenhom and Nicole Baldinu.

The Fizzle Show — fun, actionable and inspiring show for creative entrepreneurs.

The Cubicle Crashing Podcast by Lydia Lee — Lydia interviews creative entrepreneurs and individuals about unconventional lifestyle and escaping 9–5. Check out my conversation with Lydia.

Entrepreneur on Fire — John Lee Dumas interviews most inspiring and successful entrepreneurs.
If any of those sound interesting check them out. They are about subjects of interest to Laurinavicius however and may or may not be for you. There are thousands of podcasts on every subject you can imagine out there. You just need to search around to find the ones that will appeal to you.

As I develop a list of favorites I will post them on this blog.

I do suggest you be selective. Some podcasts I’ve listened to have been of little value. Some people do them well, some not so well. You just have to try them to find out.

Then start your list of favorite podcasts and set aside some time to listen today.

Wishing you well,
