Ivy Lee Method FAQs
  1. Can I list more than 6 items? Yes, but I wouldn’t recommend it
  2. Can I make my list in the morning? Try creating your list the night before and adjust as needed.
  3. What if there are tasks I never complete? Assess whether those tasks actually need to be done. Find another way for those tasks to get done, or kick them off the list. Only the things that are truly important belong there.

The importance of marking a book

Why is marking a book indispensable to reading it? 

First, it keeps you awake, not merely conscious, but wide awake. 

Second, reading, if it is active, is thinking, and thinking tends to express itself in words, spoken or written. The person who says he knows what he thinks but cannot express it usually does not know what he thinks.

Third, writing your reactions down helps you to remember the thoughts of the author.
