We all have time during the day that we could cram other activities into, but perhaps we’re too tired after a long day. Podcasts are a great way to pick up knowledge whilst you’re doing something else as there’s no visuals to concentrate on. You can make that time more valuable to your career than it is currently.

Most people will need to do some of the following and they’re ideal times to push your career further:

  • Commuting
  • Household chores
  • Walking the dog
  • Gardening
  • Decorating
  • Watching a Sandra Bullock movie

Basically any task that is not mentally taxing and it’s safe to be listening to something.

Even listening to something just once a week can help to expand your mind or to reinforce some key concepts. It’s time well spent, and what’s more it can be time that’s already earmarked for other things. This is why Mark Pryce-Maher (Twitter|LinkedIn) and I created SoundsOfSQL.com

If you want to progress your career, or you’re looking for some “just in time” training on a particular topic then do give it a try. You can listen to any of the podcasts for free at SoundsOfSQL.com or on iTunes.
