Honestly speaking, I didn’t diligently listened to podcasts until 2015.Since then I am obsessed with listening to podcasts.I think listening to podcasts is a great way to invest in oneself. If you are new to listening to podcasts , I think you should give it a try. Most of them has seriously changed my perspective in life.
Also, podcasts are great medium to learn new things. I started listening to podcast from the time I practiced my french with Coffee with French. Along with that, I explored many other podcasts that were essentially a life changer for me. I learnt heaps about personal development, productivity , entrepreneurship, digital marketing strategies and tons of other info through one-on-one delivery as well as the interviews done with successful people from all around the world.
I always believe that it’s good to make an effort to surround yourself with the people who keep you up with inspiration, motivation and the hard work to reach towards their goal. (Specially if you find it difficult to have such people around you in your everyday life)
For me , podcasts were not only the ones giving me a lot of information and knowledge during the most unproductive state of mind but also utilized my time during long commute, stucked traffic, queues and long hours of waiting.
There are many podcasts to choose to listen with so many variation in subjects.
