Ideas from books, articles & podcasts.
One of the benefits of reading is that you can master the best of what other people discovered.
But it is only true if you can actually remember and apply the lessons and insights you read.
You will instantly know if you picked up a good book. It is well written, packed with ideas and insights and is well organised. Naturally, you will want to read the next page.
Good books finish themselves. Trying to finish a bad book is a grind. Instead, skim a lot ...
Reading the words on a page or screen is the easy part. The problem is that this is often the only way we learn to read.
There are different approaches to reading.
If you want to improve what you get out of reading, you have to choose great books.
There are only a few new books that might prove valuable, but most will be forgotten. So instead, let time filter the good books. Find the books that stood the test of time....
The best way to get more out of books is by taking notes with the blank sheet method.
Write in the margins of your book. You bought it. It's your property.
