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…
“The thought crossed my mind: What if everyone who watched Netflix watched lynda.com instead? How much would the world change—our productivity and people’s quality of life?” says Sean. “Then I thought … why don’t I just do that?”
