HOW TO TACKLE THE TOUGH BOOKS
Reading is a well documented important habit from the world’s top entrepreneurs. But trying to tackle books that are beyond your current level of knowledge can be a challenge. Ryan Holiday outlines key techniques to consuming books that will increase your intelligence and help you ‘level up’:
- Reciting the important lessons that lead to key events.
- Ruining the ending by researching the book and reading reviews before you start
- Look up phrases you don’t understand.
- Mark passages and write notes with Post-It Flags.
- Applying lessons or using quotes when possible in day to day life.
Plus two more time consuming, effective measures such as: re-reading and hand-writing passages on an index card to revisit in the future and reading one book from the bibliography to find more relevant reads.
