The Best Way To Read A Book

If you are going to be successful in life then give yourself an advantage.
Read more personal development books.
There are 2 ways that you can learn in this life, one is from your mistakes. The other is from the mistakes of others. If you choose to read, you can learn from the mistakes of others instead going through the pain of making those same mistakes yourself.

Those who don’t read, have no advantage over those who can’t read.

Audio books
Many people feel like they just don’t have time to read, so instead of actually reading from a book, they listen to it. Listening to a book can save you a lot of time. You can listen to a book while you are driving, while you are exercising or even while you are sleeping. It’s a great way to make sure that you have an extra dose of personal development each day.

Audio books are a very efficient way of “reading” books. I listen to audio books on a daily basis. While they are the most efficient way of “reading” a book, they aren’t the most effective way of reading a book.

There is an argument that much of the material that you are hearing when you are listening to an audio book goes into your sub-conscious mind and I agree with that. However, when you are listening to an audio book while you are doing something else like driving, exercising or running errands, you aren’t concentrating on the content of the book. You are likely to miss most of the value that the book is giving. It’s very efficient but it’s not very effective.

With A Highlighter
The most effective way to read a book is with a highlighter in your hand. In the past, I wanted to keep my books as clean as possible. I wanted to make sure that they were untouched. I wouldn’t dare, write in a book or highlight any of the profound passages. I’m not sure why I wanted to keep my books in pristine condition. I wasn’t planning on selling them later on or anything. But I’ve since changed my position.

Some of my most treasured and valuable books have many of their pages highlighted. I have notes in many of the margins. This is the most effective way of reading a book.

This is one of my favorite captions that I’ve highlighted.

The reason to highlight profound passages in a book isn’t merely to be able to review them later on. The ability to review your highlighted passages later on is simply a secondary (but wonderful) benefit. The real reason to highlight passages in a book is explained in the video below.

Do you do what I do? Do you read a book with a highlighter in your hand?
I would love to hear in the comments below.
Create A Great Day!
