Save 50% for 3 months, only $7.49/mo.Audible.com, you’re missing out. (This is not meant to be a commercial, but it’s going to sound like one because I really, really like their service.)

Download audiobooks to your iPod, iPhone, Blackberry & over 500+ devices. Save 50% for 3 months, only $7.49/mo.Audible.com is to audio books what Amazon.com is to the printed word. Their library continues to grow and you can find some amazing personal development works there.

I recently finished listening to Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and SuccessOutwitting The Devil by Napoleon Hill and I have to say, the audio was amazing. I have no idea who they guy was they got to read the part of Satan, but it was very good. Chilling.

If you have a flight, long commute or just some down time this is another great way to fill your time with good positive information. Sure, you can use it for “fun” reads, but I have the latest business books and personal development mateteral downloaded and listen to them usually a chapter at a time.

It’s hard for me to commit the time (unless I have a long trip) to listen to a large chunk and I’ve found if I take them chapter-by-chapter it makes it easy to consume this content. If I’m not driving, I try to take notes on Evernote on my phone and actually have an Evernote Notebook for Audio books. If I hear of one I want to download I jot it down, but I use it mostly for notes since I cannot highlight it like a printed book.

The bottom line is we live in the greatest time in history to consume good content. Anything you want to know or learn is out there and available. What are you doing? How are you filling your downtime?

I just downloaded EntreLeadership: 20 Years of Practical Business Wisdom from the TrenchesEntreLeadership by Dave Ramsey and Extraordinary LeadershipExtraordinary Leadership by Robin Sharma. Again, the library is expanding daily—take the opportunity to fill your mind with good, positive information. Learn something new. Practice your skills. Stay up-to-date on leadership and management techniques and trends.

Don’t sit idly by while the world moves past you. It’s imply way too easy today to learn and grow.
