1. SPEED READING

The more we read, the faster we can acquire knowledge, and like G.I. Joe says, “Knowledge is power.” Bill Gates was reportedly asked what superpower he would choose, if he could. His answer? “Being able to read superfast.

Jim Kwik, CEO of Kwik Learning, did some math on the subject.

“The average person reads 200-250 words-per-minute and spends 3 to 4 hours of their work day reading. That’s more than one-third of their time on the job. If that person makes $60,000 a year, then at least $20,000 of that money is paying for them to read.  But proper training can easily double the average person’s reading speed (up to 400-450 w.p.m.). That cuts 3 to 4 hours down to 1 to 2. That’s a savings of over an hour a day. If you do that for 365 days a year, that’s 9 different 40 hour work weeks saved. That’s real time productivity. Imagine what you could do with all that extra time.”

WHERE TO LEARN:

ReadSpeeder is a free online web tool that teaches you how to speed read through visualization techniques. The site has over 50,000 users and states, “With barely a half hour of practice for the next 12 days, you could double or triple your reading speed, and improve comprehension.”

Spritzlet is a handy little browser extension that allows you to speed read any web page, and has an adjustable slider-bar where you can increase or decrease the words per minute. It only takes a minute to install and can easily be removed when you have mastered the skill of speed reading.
