Nice to see you again.
In today's information society, we need to read and digest information daily as information can change by the minute. However, most of us do not have the luxury of time to read whatever information that come to our hands. Therefore, as we are pressed for time, speed reading is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Equally essential is that readers must be able to grasp and fully understand the message that come out from the reading materials.
To expedite the process of retaining information, we may need to use some of the tips listed below:-
1. Stay focus on what you need
You don't need to read every word from the piece of information you have. Stay focus on what you need, skipping process may be useful here. Take an bird's eye view at the table of contents. Look at the specific topics that can provide you with the specific information you need. Alternatively, you can make a quick assessment on how you can relate it with the specific topic you have in mind. If the information is not relevant and currently not required, then drop it.
2. Retain peace of mind
Stay cool and try not to be in a stressful state, it would not help you, but will make it more difficult to concentrate in reading that material. As such, the information will not sink into your mind and heart.
Retaining peace is a skill and you need to master the skill to empower your concentration power, just like the dried sponge merge into water.
3. Repetition is the key of mastering
To master any skill of trade, you need to keep on repeating the process. Same as in speed reading. Setting a goal and consistently raising your bar to the best you can cope with will keep you out of disappointment. Don't set unrealistic targets. No doubt, this takes time and practice, but it is worth your effort. Raise the bar as you progress and after you have gained confidence.
4. Sustaining your progress
Reaching the top is very much easier than staying on top. The same analogy can be drawn between making decision and managing decision. Once the decision is made, monitoring and managing that decision is more crucial to lead us to success. That's why you see lots of good and sound decisions fail to bear fruit.
5. Have faith in it
In life, you will get what you expect. As such, it is important for you to understand that you can't obtain something you do not believe in. So, you must have the right perspective and keep on moving towards your goals. No doubt, you will face with some challenges along the way, which will mould and shape you accordingly, before you can move to the next level of success. The higher the level of success you have, the stronger the strength you need to sustain it. This is the law of nature which has been proven in mankind's history.
