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 of books and read a few.
You don't need to finish a bad or mediocre book. When you realise you can quit a book without guilt, you create the space and opportunity for a great book.
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.
You don't need to read everything the same way. We spend most of our time in levels 2 and 3.
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.
Time is limited, so direct it to knowledge that lasts. Read old books. Read the best ones twice.
The best way to get more out of books is by taking notes with the blank sheet method.
When you use this method, you will literally see your knowledge grow as you add new information. You'll start to connect ideas across disciplines and develop your own ideas.
Write in the margins of your book. You bought it. It's your property.
The idea is to connect new knowledge to existing knowledge and find the gaps in your understanding.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
