If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that we can’t afford to stop learning. Few would likely argue this, but knowing what you need to do and actually doing it, that’s something altogether different. It’s not as if we’re deprived of opportunity, right? If you’ve got an Internet connection then you’ve got access to more information than at any time in the history of the world.
So, if it’s not a matter of access, then what is it? Ability? Motivation?
But I suspect there’s something else.
For most of us, our downfall is that we have too much competition for our attention. We carry computers in our pockets with every form of social media and a 24-hour news cycle that’s always at our fingertips.
Add to that a grinding work-culture, coupled with demanding family responsibilities, and it leaves little to the imagination as to why we’re scattered and unfocused.
Under these kinds of circumstances, thinking about elective learning seems almost ridiculous. Who’s got that kind of time?
We have difficulty keeping our highest priorities straight, let alone diving deep into learning new skills or concepts that aren’t really “necessary.” The problem is, just because something’s not deemed “necessary,” doesn’t make it unimportant.
Thankfully, along with all the innovations that can contribute to the chaos, there are services that have actually attempted to make things better.
Athena, is one of those. Think about the most capable note-taker you knew in college, then add technology and time. That’s Athena.
Delivers the best ideas from the best books in easy-to-understand insights, which you can read or listen to in 15 minutes or less.
Athena’s growing library spans a multitude of topics to help you do everything from turbocharge your career, boost your health, improve your relationships, find inner happiness, and even up your chess game.
Available in audio and text formats, Athena gives you everything you need to learn when, where and how you want.Apple App Store
Distilling the best takeaway’s from impactful books, in the midst of a busy life, almost feels like a superpower. Ditch the cape and tights and think Dr. Xavier.
In about 15 minutes you can tackle almost any topic, and walk away with the highlights. While it may not be the right choice for those that enjoy a good, long book, it does open up some options for the most time-challenged among us.
Obviously, there is a cost…in the form of a monthly subscription.
Monthly Library Pass – $4.99/month
Annual Library Pass – $49.99/year
Lifetime Library Pass – $189.99Apple App Store
They do offer a free trial for those that are interested in testing the platform before you subscribe, but as of right now, you’ll have to own an Apple device in order to use it.
