Learning Can Take Place Anywhere!

  " A book is a dream that you hold in your hand."

                 –Neil Gaiman

" If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads."

–Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you are like me, you use the toilet. Either you are a CEO or Janitor, we all  go to the toilet. Each time, you stand before an important man, just remember he uses the toilet like you!

It’s been said that an average person spends about 525, 600 minutes in the toilet in his lifetime. That is a whole lot of time. That time can be converted into a profitable time. Toilet time can be turned to an investment time!

How do you turn your toilet time into a self-improvement Time? Here are my few suggestions:

1. As you empty your body of waste, use that time to empty your mind of "waste." Use the time in the toilet to flush your mind of bitterness,worry, jealousy and other waste. Ensure that you come out of the toilet with a clean body and a clean mind. You will feel lighter!

2. Use toilet time to meditate. Many times we read books or learn certain things that we don’t have time to process, as a result, those things never really benefit us as they should. Toilet time is a good time to reflect or ponder overconcept or ideas. Use toilet time to internalize concepts.

3. Harvest inspiration: Because our minds are relatively calm and quiet during toilet time, we easily receive the flow of inspiration from our spirits.Many times, I come out of the toilet with a topic for a new book, ideas for my next presentation or title for my next  blog’s article. Don’t allow great ideas topass you by while in the toilet. Take a pen with you!

4. Read books: When people tell me they don’t have time to read books, Iwonder what they do with their toilet time. Do you know that If you are a fastreader, you can read 200words in a minute? That is the time it takes to read apage of an 8 * 11 size book. You can actually read a book of 200 pages in amonth in the toilet alone!

That is why you need to keep your toilet fresh and clean.

Ok, that said. Don’t forget you are still in the toilet, get out when your timeis up!
