Have you ever tried speed reading? If you think speed reading is just reading really fast, skimming or skipping words, you’d be dead wrong. You read every single word.
how to read better
Does it take you a few pages to warm up when reading a book? In the case of speed reading this happens a lot since many people can find it a challenge to steer the ship as they navigate their way through a book. I was never great at reading past chapter two of any book because it would take mental energy to try and understand, hence I had to go back and re-read, to only have to go back and re-read again!
I was never a big reader. I have no idea how I made it through school. I would read a sentence and almost immediately forget what I had read. Multiply that by a few pages and trying to recall written information was a fairly difficult task. Especially if it was ‘technical’ content, then I would have to go back and re-read many times over. Just so I can fully understand what I had gone through.
