Speed Reading

The barriers to increasing reading speed

  • Regression: Going to the previous word to read it again. To stop it use a visual pacer. Underline the words that you read with your finger (in pc use your cursor.)
  • Subvocalization: The voice in your mind that speaks with you while you read. To stop this just count (1,2,3,4,5...) loudly while you read.
  • Word by Word Reading: Try to see a chunk of words at once and understand its means by a picture in your mind.

Just practice more to increase your reading speed.

7 Lies of Learning
  1. Intelligence is Fixed.
  2. We use only 10% of your brain.

  4. Knowledge is Power. (Without implementation it's useless)
  5. Learning new things is Difficult.
  6. Criticism of Others matters.
  7. Genius is born. (Not born. It's made through deep practice.)

If an egg is broken by an outside force LIFE ends. If broken by an inside force, LIFE begins. Great things always begin from inside.

  • Act: The human brain does not learn as much by consumption as creation.
  • State: Change you posture or the depth of your breathing. Consciously choose states of joy, fascinating, and curiosity.
  • Teach: Cut your learning curve dramatically, learn with the intention of teaching someone else.
  • Enter: Enter blocks of time to invest in yourself, even if that's only 10 or 15 minutes a day!
  • Review: You are better able to retain info by reviewing multiple spread out sessions. Create a habit daily review of what you've learned.

Free your mind (Part I)
  • Becoming limitless is about learning how to learn ...embodying the behaviors, tools, & strategies that bring maximum results and rewards for our efforts.
  • When our mindset is right, we are motivated from within to act, and we know an effective way of acting - we become limitless in how much we can grow. 
  • Our brain can make new connections and grow (neuroplasticity & neurogenesis) till the last day of our life. So our capacity to learn & grow literally has no limits.
  • All of us use 100% of our functional brain, some just do it better than others. Just like we all use 100% of our functional body but some get more out of it with comparative ease because of the effort they put into it.
