In one of my earlier posts, I had written about the tremendous pace at which we are being flooded with new information. Knowledge on any given topic is said to be doubling every two years. This simply means that with farm fresh information becoming available so fast, we are all becoming obsolete at a rate of 50% every year, unless we locate ,internalize and apply this information. It goes without saying that in a world that is expecting MORE of the BETTER, QUICKER, being more knowledgeable than others is a definite competitive advantage.
Let me recommend to you two vitals skills that can equip you to Learn quite effectively. I have acquired these skills myself and can vouch for their ease of internalization. They can dramatically increase your knowledge (on any subject of your choice) by leaps and bounds, thereby making you much more valuable than your peers (who haven’t subscribed to this blog yet).
The first one is Speed Reading. It’s an amazing technique that teaches you how to triple your effective reading rate. ERR is the rate at which you can read and internalize. If you currently read at 80 words per minute and you remember 70% of it, your ERR is 56. By Learning Speed Reading you can increase it to 150 and beyond. I have seen people increase it even by 400 to 500%. Imagine being able to finish a report or book in just one fourth the time that you usually take.
The second is Accelerated Learning Techniques. Each of us have a preferred learning style. We are either Visual, Auditory or Kinesthetic Learners. Moreover each of us are endowed with varying degrees of the 7 different intelligences (Linguistic, Logical, Bodily, Spatial, Musical, Interpersonal and Intrapersonal). ALT gives you the opportunity to understand our predominant intelligences and Learning styles and by recommending various tools and techniques to learn using our preferred modes, it facilitates quicker and more effective learning. Using these techniques we can learn in half the time and also ensure total recall at any point of time.
There are lot of good books that teach you speed reading. But I would personally recommend a software called EYEQ. You can get it here……
Download the software and work on it for a few days and you will find your eyes gobbling up words and paragraphs in a jiffy…..
ALT is also available from multiple sources. But the best one is from the world renowned trainer Brian Tracy. You can purchase a set of 6 or 7 CD’s. You can go through them within a couple of hours and trust me, your life will never be the same again. You can get them here…
As I have said before, LEARN MORE to EARN MORE and these two sources will help you do just that comfortably…
I expect a Thank you call.
