How to Learn Faster


Do you want to be a quick learner?  

Step One: Why don’t you read through My Book (particularly Chapter 3!) and learn to read quicker and retain more.  This chapter includes the best ways to self-educate your way to reading faster here are my quick and easy recommendations!

  1. Google "speed reading" and see what blogs are sharing their ideas for free. Remember, just a few ideas is all you need to get you started!

  2. Watch a few videos on YouTube. Again, just do a search and see what comes up for you. I don’t know what you’ll find. Just explore! YouTube is such a vat of information and knowledge.
  3. Chat with a few students who are essentially professional readers and learn their tactics to speed read. Do they read? Do they skim? What does it look like for them to devour loads of information quickly before an exam?

  4. After exploring ideas 1-3, IMPLEMENT these ideas. Reference Chapter 8 of my book and see what comes up for you. Digest this chapter and see what it takes for you to improve your speed and your comprehension.

How do you digest info? Do you watch videos or listen to audio??

A lot of programs have started having speed adjustment functions within them to help you listen to audio and watch videos faster.

I started with a program called MySpeed for online videos and VLC for offline videos.

Nowadays, even YouTube has its own function to adjust speed in the bottom right corner of the video screen!

Like with most new things, the trick with watching videos at faster speeds is to start small and allow your brain to get used to the pace and fluidity of information. Think of it like exercising-- begin and increase a little more each week (i.e. 1.25x then to 1.5x a week later). 

I often listen to audio up to 3x or higher! But will often spend most of my time listening to audio around 1.5x - 2x depending on how dense the audio is.

Anyway, more about that in My Book.
