How to read
How you and me read at work is wrong. And there's a cure.
Why it matters
- As knowledge workers, we need to read a lot.
- We do not have a strategy what and how to read.
- We quit due to too much info.
- We want to read everything, we skim, we get lost, we forget everything.
- Dedicate timeboxes to reading
- Read about things that we have no idea about yet
- Read a lot less
- Read slowly and think
- Read long form mainly
- Make notes, not just highlights
- Stop reading when it does not feel right any longer
