Crippled CEO Blog #089:
I listen to a lot of audiobooks.
I figured out the secret (for me) is to stack the habit of listening to the audiobook on top of something I’m going to do anyways.
I put an Alexa near my bathroom. And whenever I come in to tinkle, I tell her to play my audiobook.
This process takes me five or six minutes, so that’s all I listen for, but I do it every time. Every day. And I have consumed a decent number of audiobooks this way.
Connecting one habit to another is a great way to start a new routine.
I’m going to attach screenshots of all of my recent listens for you all to look through. The ones highlighted/circled are the books that aren’t about running a business and are good for everybody. I would only recommend the rest of them if you’re currently running an organization.
If you’ve read/listened to any of these, let me know your favorite. If you have a book you think I should check out, please let me know.
(Do you know who reads me like a book? Your mom. She’s also a genius who signed up to get a weekly text message from me with a link to the latest blog. Just send a text to the number 484848 with the word CRIP as the message and you can, too.)
