Simple answer: it doesn’t make any good.
Over the past few months the amount of my reading has skyrocketed. But I would be mindlessly wasting time if I got nothing in return. No new knowledge or perspectives. That’s why I simply had to make a system that allows me to read, remember, repurpose and use what I read. And ironically, I was able to make it from what I read.
My new article is all about how I read.
I realise it’s not “perfect”, but it works surprisingly well. For books, articles and everything else. The majority of the articles on my blog stem from what I learned while reading.
If you’re not interested yet, let me give you a quick preview of what it contains:
- Choosing what to read (from articles to books and the internet)
- Reading itself (on Kindle of course)
- Making a habit of reading (2 books per month)
- Why speed reading might not be the best idea
- Taking notes (that I never liked taking)
- Remembering what I read (which I rarely did), and
- What I read so far (since reading as described in the article)
