5 Steps to Learning How to Speed Read in 20 minutes Imagine how much time you would save if you could double, even triple, your reading speed. The average American reads between 200-300 words per minute (wpm), and has been reading at that same rate since their mid-teenage years. If you fall within this category, a 300 page novel takes you approximately 7-8 hours to read. If you doubled your reading rate, you would read that same novel in 3.5-4 hours. In an interview, Bill Gates was once asked, “If you could have a superpower, what would it be?” Successful people read a lot. I had always considered myself a slow reader, and use to think there was nothing I could do about it. I learned that anyone can learn how to speed read. It’s not just for geniuses, and it’s not a myth. If you’re up for the challenge, here is a step-by-step guide to increasing your reading speed and becoming a boss: *To perform these exercises, I suggest using a large, hard cover book that lays flat when open (trust me, this will make these exercises much easier). 1.

How to Write a Book In Your Spare Time Many people say they would like to write a book. That statement is usually in the form of “I have this great book idea”, “I’ve always wanted to write a novel” or “I will write it when I have more time.” I used to say things like that. I kept promising myself that I would write a book someday. Then I realized something important. There are seven days in a week, but someday isn’t one of them. Do It Now I’ve had several friends who have told me they want to write a novel. The best advice I ever got from another writer was this: put your butt in the chair. Stephen King said, “The scariest moment is just before you start.” Making yourself sit down and start typing is something I fight with daily, even after having written two full-length novels. Just put your butt in the chair and start working. Finding Time The most common excuse I hear is “I don’t have time.” I wrote my first two novels by finding fifteen minutes, three times each day. In the morning, I woke up fifteen minutes early. Go img

21 Incredibly Important Diagrams To Help You Get Through Life Become A Man's Man With These 65 Life Hacks From Goldman Sachs Investment banking firm Goldman Sachs has published a list of bite-sized tips designed to turn you into the ultimate man. (Apparently, a healthy dose of sexism towards women is a pre-requisite.) Photo: AMC What does it mean to be a man today? As you’d expect from Goldman Sachs, there’s a distinct Wall Street/white collar vibe to many of these pearls of wisdom — you should always tip more than you need to, for example, and your sunglasses need to be incredibly expensive. Some of the advice also seems to have come straight out of the 1960s-set TV show Mad Men (“When in doubt, always kiss the girl”, “Hookers aren’t cool, but remember, the free ones are a lot more expensive.” ) We’ve also omitted some of the more overtly US-centric tips such as the best “rest rooms” in New York.
