Back in May, 20-year-old Sean Witzke launched an experiment: Take the time he would normally spend watching his favorite TV shows and devote it instead to learning stuff.
His theory: If he began producing things, instead of just consuming them, he could become self-employed in 90 days.
So he cancelled his Netflix subscription—quitting Breaking Bad, Lost, Prison Break, and Suits cold turkey—and dove into lynda.com.
And guess what?

What if you took all the time you spend watching television—and instead applied it to learning something new?
That’s the question that popped into Sean Witzke’s head late one night after binge-watching his favorite shows: Breaking Bad, Lost, Prison Break, Suits…

According to a print and onlineNew York Times article this week, more and more workers—from mechanics to librarians to doctors—are turning to lynda.com and other training sources to stay competitive in their careers.
“The need to constantly adapt is the new reality for many workers, well beyond the information technology business,” writes author Shaila Dewan in the Sept. 21 Business Day story To Stay Relevant in a Career, Workers Train Nonstop. “Going back to school for months or years is not realistic for many workers, who are often left to figure out for themselves what new skills will make them more valuable, or just keep them from obsolescence. In their quest to occupy a valuable niche, they are turning to bite-size instructional videos, peer-to-peer forums and virtual college courses.”
