The Secret to Reading

The Secret to Reading

I really believe that anyone can make time to read. Chances are you wish you read more since everyone feels this way. The secret is to not think of reading as a precious thing. If you’re only going to open a book on the off chance you have several hours to kill in a comfy chair with a glass of scotch, it’s only ever going to happen when you have several hours to kill in a comfy chair with a glass of scotch.

Read In The Morning

Read In The Morning

Most people keep their reading on their nightstand. If you read at night, you probably only get through a few pages before you get sleepy. Instead, I recommend reading in the morning. Even if you’re not an early riser, use the time you spend checking Instagram in bed to read a couple chapters. (I...

Try Skipping The Podcasts At Times

Try Skipping The Podcasts At Times

If you take the subway or bus to work, skip the podcasts and read. A half-hour commute can easily turn into five hours of dedicated reading time every week—enough for most people to read an entire book. You can try out using ebooks. But remember to read at your own pace. It's not necessary for yo...

Tracking Progress

Tracking Progress

This is a bit of FitBit-style gaming. Keeping a list of what you’ve read will give you a sense of accomplishment. You can use GoodReads, but honestly, it’s just easier to jot books down in your phone’s Notes app. Also good: get into the habit of keeping a list of books you want to read next.

Just A Little Bit

Just A Little Bit

Being well-read means making it a part of your daily life—not treating it as a luxury. And it’s not that hard. Like all things, it just takes a little bit of discipline and a little bit of trickery. Reading for a minimum amount of 30 minutes can also be beneficial.

The Library

The Library

The library is an amazing institution that understands one universal principle: free shit rules. On top of easing any financial pressure to follow through on a book you’re not enjoying, there’s also the added incentive of finishing something before its due date. Also, almost every library now sup...

Sneaking In Reading

Sneaking In Reading

Watching live TV? Just sneak in a little reading. This works especially well while watching sports (especially football or baseball) at home. Just mute the TV and read in five-minute intervals. Fun fact: you could’ve read a thousand books in the amount of time you’ve spent subjected to ads. That'...

It's Okay To Quit Midway

It's Okay To Quit Midway

You don’t have to commit to a book that drags. In fact, it’s more likely to make you quit your reading habit. Sure, you might feel obligated to finish a book you spent $15 on. If you feel uninterested, put it down and move on to a different one. You can always come back later to pick up where you...

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!

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.

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

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!

Jamyson Haug

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