Reading Right

To be a great reader, it is not enough that you read, it’s also how you read. The following strategies by no means are a complete list, but if you implement even a couple of them,  you’ll not only be a better reader but a better person too.

Stop Reading Books You Aren’t Enjoying

Stop Reading Books You Aren’t Enjoying

If you find yourself wanting to speed up the reading process on a particular book, you might want to ask yourself: “Is this book any good?”

You turn off a TV show or movie if it’s boring. You stop eating food that doesn’t taste good. You unfollow people when you realize their content is useless.

Life is too short to read books you don’t enjoy reading. The thumb rule: 100 pages minus your age — so if you’re 30 years old and a book hasn’t captivated you by page 70, stop reading it.

That way, as you age, you have to endure crappy books less and less.

I cannot call somebody ‘hard-working’ knowing only that they read. I need to know what and how they read too.

Deepstash Before Deepstash

Deepstash Before Deepstash

From Seneca to Ronald Reagan, it has been a best practice to save or collect notes, ideas and quotes.

Type out quotes and passages from great books to feel great writing come through you. Have a rough notepad, a collection of quotes, ideas, stories and facts that you want to keep for later. Or just use the Deepstash app!

 It will make you a much better writer and a wiser person.

Read The Book Again Because You Have Changed Now

Read The Book Again Because You Have Changed Now

You were in high school when you read The Great Gatsby for the first time. You were just a kid when someone tell you the story of Odysseus.

The point is: You got it, right? You’ve already read them or learned about them, so you’re done, right?

We cannot be content to simply pick up a book once and judge it by that experience; it’s why we have to read and reread.

Ask For Book Recommendations

Ask For Book Recommendations

If a book changed someone’s life — whatever the topic or style — it’s probably worth the investment. If it changed them, then it will likely at least help you.

Ralph Waldo Emerson’s once quoted: “If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.”

Don't Make The Same Mistakes Others Have Made

Don't Make The Same Mistakes Others Have Made

 Humans have been fighting and dying and struggling and doing the same things for eons. To not avail yourself of their knowledge is arrogant and stupid.

How dare you waste investors’ money by not reading and learning from the mistakes of other entrepreneurs? How dare you so take your marriage or your children for granted that you think you can afford to figure these out by doing the wrong things first?

You must learn from the experiences of others. Drink deeply from history, philosophy, and more. Study the cautionary tales and the screw-ups, the failures and successes.

Reading As Therapy

Reading As Therapy

The path to wisdom is not a straight one. The journey is long and circuitous with twists and turns, ups and downs, highs and lows. Maybe you’re in the middle of a low right now, or you’re at the very bottom of the valley. This can be a scary place to be, because it can feel like you’ll be stuck there forever.

It helps to revisit your favourite books and be energized again.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

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.

Ashley Anthony

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!

Ghazala Begum

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.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

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.

Laetitia Berton

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!
