I love music, but music can sometimes keep you from making effective use of your time. Why not swap some musical entertainment with audio learning?
With today's wonderful tools we enjoy the privilege and opportunity of constant learning. As a teenager I used to listen to talk tapes. Now, on my cell phone, I always have at least 48 hours worth of audio books and training. In fact, much much more than that.
My work schedule doesn't necessarily allow me to do much listening during the toughest hours of the day, but early morning, in the evening or whenever there is a moment of "nothingness" I have so much great stuff to study (...even though I do appreciate just silence, whenever that is needed!).
Of course, I listen to music as well. However, most of the "music" I hear makes me wanna dance. It may not be rythm, beat and harmonies, but rather pure knowledge that inspires wise every-day application and that gives me a lot of energy.
