Developing oneself is an easier job just stated by mouth than put into our hands and made into action.

To grow oneself or to develop or be developed into a better person or individual, one needs to constantly feed the mind with insightful content that continually arouses the brain and mind to ponder on doing more.

On very feasible and easy hack/means to doing this is simply listening to podcasts, as you listen to your Eminem or Emeli Sande on the way to work or in transit to/from work/school, so can you educate your mind in the process.

Afterall, practice makes perfect, right? 

However, as most things readily inquired for on the web, this sphere seems too crowded and finding the one/s that fits in with us is an issue most people have to deal with (***that you’ve not given up on your search means you’re getting there).

Have no idea what a podcast is about?
