It means that you have a specific goal at hand, you want to connect what you’re reading to other information and that it is something you’re invested in and will come back to again and again.
MORE IDEAS FROM Reading with intention can change your life
This could mean a phrase or quote that catches you off guard or changes the way you think about a certain topic. Or an interesting fact that you’ll want to save for later on.
A random sampling of the world’s most successful people will show one common trait: a love of reading. Because reading is the easiest way to continue the learning process.
...in terms of reading retention:
“Whatever problem you’re struggling with is probably addressed in some book somewhere written by someone a lot smarter than you."
It's knowing how to learn. Learning itself is a skill, and knowing how to do it well is an incredibly valuable advantage.
Merely acquiring information is not learning. People need the ability to make sense of complexity and to combine many bits of data into a broad picture of the world, especially in today's high-information world.
Don't just re-read your notes. When you first read, you extract a lot of information, but when you do it the second time, you read with a sense of 'I know this, I know this.'
This gives you the illusion that you know the material very well, when in fact there are gaps.
