Sometimes you are very close to something it begins to be blurred. You have to back up a bit, get some space between you, in order to focus. You may even have to get outside help to see the big picture. When you step back from what you're working on you can often connect the dots better.

I couldn’t choose between the 3 options because I like them all equally. I watch videos when I am ironing or have them or an audio going while I am cleaning & sometimes while I am cooking. Of course being a busy Mum means there are times when I can’t commit to a full audio or video podcast. That’s why I like reading posts – because I can read it in spits & spurts here & there when I find time. I guess there is a time for everything….
Thanks for the thoughts Renata. There probably is a season to our preferences.

I personally do better with print than video. I only watch videos when I think they’re going to be fabulous or if they’re tutorials. Otherwise, I am a very fast reader, and that works best for me.
I have limited bandwidth in our very rural area with my satellite internet connection, so I’m extremely selective about what videos I watch. I much prefer text, with the option to view if I choose.
if it’s chit-chat type stuff, I’d rather read at my leisure, and save my download for helpful tutorials
Reading is my first choice.
My reading speed is fast, and I also like being able to refer back to text for notes, and so on.
For me, videos take far longer to get through than text, and so take up too much time.
If one is going to do a long video, I always appreciate it when there is a PDF transcription available, too.
Videos in this context work well when there is a how-to part that is best illustrated/taught by showing one on a video.
Even then, I would like to have those instructions in text, too.
I have to agree with you about writing. I prefer reading through something than listening or watching – unless it’s a tutorial.

I’m a reader. I don’t often have the time to listen to an entire pod cast. I scan written material for the highlights and get what I need.
