Key Points and Tips:
1 – Use audio books to read while you’re doing your chores at the same time.
Activities such as cooking, cleaning, shopping, during public transport and walking, are all activities you can use to read more.
During these tasks, we usually don’t need deep focus or a flow state which makes them perfect for listening to audiobooks.
We all have the same 24 hour days, and it’s really about organizing our time and energy to get more out of the existing time.
Just this tip alone will triple your reading time.
Think about it; There are at least 1 to 2 hours every day when you’re doing something that doesn’t require your full focus.
A typical audio book is 7-8h long. So that’s at least one extra book per week just by doing this.
And if you love physical books you don’t have to stop reading those.
I find the audio format much more fun and engaging, but that’s just my personal preference.
In any case, it’s a good idea to combine both formats to get the most out of each.
I get all my audiobooks from
The library of available titles is massive, and the mobile app is very easy to use.
2 – To retain more information while reading think of how you would teach the concept to someone else and make a note.
This is probably the most useful advice I can give you on retaining more while reading.
Simple imagine you have to convey the idea to someone who hasn’t got any idea what you’re reading.
Reading with this frame of mind will force your brain to connect the dots and internalize the material faster.
There was a great study done on this where they compared students taking notes with a keyboard vs. pen and paper.
The keyboard users could write down a lot more information and paraphrase much more accurately, but they did much worse on the test than the pen and paper group.
Researchers speculate that because you can make notes using a pen a lot slower compared to using a keyboard it forced the students to think deeply and summarize the material in their mind.
Additionally, I would recommend joining book clubs online or in-person where you can discuss ideas from books.
Or just try to “sell” the idea to your friends. If you can explain 50-100 pages out of a book in a few sentences to your friends and teach them a lesson you’re not only going to internalize the concept yourself but also spread valuable knowledge.
3 – Read a book that will resonate with your current situation in life.
A lot of times we read because we think we should read. And when it comes to books, we often read the books we think we should read instead of those we would truly resonate with.
There’s nothing wrong with grabbing another book if the one you’re currently reading doesn’t resonate with your current situation.
i.e. If you’re struggling to take action and you find yourself procrastinating something like the Power of Now by Echart Tolle probably isn’t the best book to read.
I remember when I made that mistake and though the Power of Now was the most boring book on the planet.
However, let’s say you get the War of Art by Steven Pressfield. Now, this book would help you take more action and beat procrastination.
Similarly, if you’re working on something in your business find books written on that exact topic.
We enjoy reading a lot more when it’s relevant to the current situation.
On the other hand, trying to force yourself to read something you’re not interested in won’t work, and you’ll not only forget the material but also be hesitant to read more in general.
