Listen to One Podcast a Day

You should be listening to one podcast a day or you are making a huge mistake.  There is too much to learn and to experience from other people to think you can Google everything you need to know. 

The great thing about podcast is they tell you things you didn't know, you needed to know.  If you commute to work and are listing to the radio or music, stop doing that.  You are impacting you growth.  This is the time to grow beyond your current thoughts and skills.  They used to say, you are as smart as the average of your closest friends.  I think you are as smart as the 5 top podcast you listen to frequently.  

I recommend listening to a work related podcast on the way to work.  This will get you in the right frame of mind and thinking about new things before you are hammered with emails and Slack messages.  

On the way home, you might listen to radio some but even then, you should try to listen to something interesting to you personally.  This might be a good time to do Audible books, fitness, health, religion or any hobby related podcast.  This winds you down some and prepares you to transition to being with family.
