i don't listen to audiobooks.

i have this limiting belief that audiobooks aren't for me. because i learn better via reading text.

but tbh i don't know if that's true, or even a good reason. like i can improve my listening comprehension, if it isn't on par with my reading yet. there's no way people's comprehension abilities are fixed.

i also told myself it was faster to read via text. but that's irrelevant, given that there's a lot of time in my day when i can only listen to audio (e.g. i'm cooking). also, audio forces my attention, whereas i sometimes get distracted when i'm reading.

so i change my mind.

today is the first day of the rest of my life. i will listen to audiobooks. i already started the audio version of Awaken the Giant Within and it's excellent.
