Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Faster reading

Today I learned from Jim Kwik a simple tip for faster reading: point your finger to the words and read, following it.

In the first round without this technique, I read 23 lines in one minute and afterward 35 lines. I read 1.5x faster without consistent training.

What about comprehension? With persistence comes consistency. And a consistent reading leads to a comprehensive reading. It’s the follow-up I’ll try next.

Try the simple tip and experience a great moment of daily -literal – learning.
