I find it crazy how much free information is out on the Internet today. What blows my mind is how little people don’t take advantage of it.
Instead I hear “there’s too much noise”, or “I don’t read blogs because of time management.” Smart people are taking their time and producing epic shit and giving it away for us to download straight to our brains. The most you have to pay is an email address, or sharing it.
There’s videos, blogs, and presentations on how to do anything. It’s easier than ever to become an expert in any field you want.
For example, a friend of mine was confused after one of his incredibly hard math classes. (which I have no idea what he’s saying when trying to explain it.) He went to a study group, and worked with a private tutor resulting in still being lost. How did he end up with an A in the class? Youtube! He started watching Youtube videos on the problems he didn’t understand and watched how the professors solved them.
Everything you read, watch and download has the potential to change your life or at least a lesson learned.
Every person who is traveling the world, living on their own terms, and living their dream life takes advantage of all the free content the Internet has to offer.
Just recently I’ve read:
- How to be Remarkable by Colin Wright
- The Flinch by Julien Smith
- Impossible: The Manifesto by Joel Runyon
- How to Start by Benjamin Spall
- The Tower by Chris Guillebeau
- The Writers Manifesto by Jeff Goins
Every one of these books are free. Plain and simple, you’re stupid to not take advantage of this. I would gladly take any one of them out to dinner to pay for the time and effort they put into their books. It’s a small price to pay for what I’ve learned from reading these books.
My New Project
I’ve started a new project for the new year. It’s a free online hockey magazine for anyone who loves this wonderful sport played on ice. Hockey has been a part of my life since I was walking. It’s a passion of mine, and I love filling my days with this sport as much as possible.
You can check it out here. I encourage you to sign-up and wait for the first edition to come out within the next 2 months. I have some amazing people lined up for the first edition. You have nothing to lose. If you don’t find the magazine useful. No problem, you can opt-out at anytime.
