Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Interpretation and Meaning

Have you ever began to read a book to realize later you drifted in your mind?

It could mean the book is not capturing your attention. Or you maybe it is a concern with a few responsibilities you need to attend. Or you’re tired and your mind easily wanders.

Reading a book is a learning activity. Even if it’s a fiction book, you’re following a storyline and interpreting. It is this interpretation which makes reading a learning activity.

But interpretation is not enough. It should pierce your life’s experience with meaning. When you interpret without find meaning it’s like judging a cake by how it looks without eating it.
