there is too much reading in my life at yale right now.
decided to pick up on fast reading skills. try it. you can improve by 10-20% in a short while and 50% if you practice.
a few thoughts:
– as with everything in life, sort out first. skimming is allowed. if you try to do everything and do it all well, you will not
– think of outlines. the writer of an article or chapter had to come up with an outline or structure to frame her thoughts. if you can uncover it (first paragraph, last paragraph, first sentance of every paragraph you can get the main points and later decide if you want to go back
now to some neat tricks
the frsit one is that you do not have to raed evrey wrod solwly. the fsrit and lsat letetrs pordive engouh inorfmaiotn. so train yuor eeys to mvoe fatser. yuor brian will do the rset.
the second neat trick is that if you read a few words each time the eye
moves you will read much faster. again, all you have to do is train
the eye to move faster and not to slow down the brain. read more than
one word at a time.
