When you learn to read faster, you will be able to understand meaning of what you read objectively and subjectively.
I am sure that you have heard or probably seen similar maxims such as, "Haste Makes Waste", "Slow but steady wins race".
Well I agrees that there are elements of truth in such maxims but it may not be really as applicable in all endeavors. Especially in your quest with Speed Reading!
When it comes to accelarated reading, facts have proven again and again that indivdual learns to read faster, they have a better, more complete understanding of what they read.
?? Doubts to what I have mentioned above??
Let me ask a few simple questions:
1. Do you think you would really enjoy and appreciate watching 20 minutes good movie today, leaving scenes today and continuing another day for next 20 minutes till you have seen entire movie?
2. After viewing final segment 1 week kater, would you have understood or at least enjoyed whole story and meaning of movie?
My Ans : Not Likely At All
We will bring analogy to reading now....
The Time Wasting Truth!
Your reading are most probably done in very much same intermittent manner.
You may be complaining now.... "Well, I will love to finish an entire book in a single session but I have this to attend and that to do..."
"Furthermore I don't have too many days to devote several hours just to read. It simply become too fatique and boring to read more than an hour in a single session..."
This is basically because for a normal human being, our mind are somehow automatically programmed on a single time track!
Humans have a spatial time concept of 60secs equal 1 min, 60 mins equal a hour, 24 hour equal a day and so on.
Our conscious mind runs along this single track and thinks about only one thing at a time. This means that anything is thought about in an orderly and constructive manner. It is certainly not possible to think two or more things simultaneously.
In order to read effectively, our mind must be on what is being read. If our mind lose concentrations and starts to wander( in other words thinking about other things) you will not be able to comprehend what you have covered visually.
