What Good Does It Make to Read a Lot and Get Nothing in Return?

Hi all!
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:
  1. Choosing what to read (from articles to books and the internet)
  2. Reading itself (on Kindle of course)
  3. Making a habit of reading (2 books per month)
  4. Why speed reading might not be the best idea
  5. Taking notes (that I never liked taking)
  6. Remembering what I read (which I rarely did), and
  7. What I read so far (since reading as described in the article)
Interested? I think so. Find the link below.
Enjoy!
Martin
