Reading Books Is Like Changing Your Past

Reading Books Is Like Changing Your Past

  • Gaining knowledge isn’t the only reason we have to read books.
  • A good book read with curiosity and an open mind can change our life.
  • Reading books is like updating the software inside your brain, and a good book gives us new ways to interpret our past and present life.
  • It is also a good idea to quit reading books that serve no purpose, as the opportunity cost is high.
  • Life is short and should be spent reading the best books possible.
  • Read the good ones more than once.

The Feynman Technique To Summarize A Book

One can make use of Deepstash and summarize a book using the Feynman note-taking technique. Write a few paragraphs about the book as if you are explaining it to someone who has not heard about it.

Explaining an idea to a beginner is the best way to learn and also reveals the gaps in our thinking.

Creating Searchable Notes

An idea is useful only if we can find it when we need it, and the best way for saving ideas is to keep notes of what we read, using Deepstash of course!

Important messages, insights and points need to be saved and reread, as it is the only way they will be in your long-term memory. Otherwise, most of the stuff we read is forgotten the next day.

One Book Isn’t Enough

Reading just one book and forming a belief system is plain stupidity. A book is not a commandment by itself but something that opens up our mind towards new ways of thinking. A mind needs to be subjected to diverse books, otherwise, it forms a personal belief system based on little or no experience.

Even one subject has to be seen by the lens of various authors to be understood.

Reading The Book Twice

Anything worth reading is worth reading twice, or even again and again. Just like a great song sounds better after you have listened to it a few times, a great book will give you new insights every time you read it. You will find older passages and ideas relevant to you which were ignored when you first read the book. This is because you would be at a different point in your life.

Returning to great ideas cements it in our minds.

Combining Knowledge Trees

A book is not an island, but a ‘knowledge tree’ with branches that can be linked to other knowledge trees, forming a connection beyond what the book offers us. When we read something that reminds us of something else, we get a spark that connects to other ideas, forming new fractal insights that are unique to our mind.

Choose What You Can Use

One needs to pick and choose books that can make us quickly implement the advice provided by the book. If the stuff written in the book resonates with you and you want to instantly try it out in the practical world(like waking up at 5:00 am after reading The 5 am Club), then you are more likely to benefit from it.

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

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!

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.

Jamyson Haug

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

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.

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!
