MONDAY MINUTE – PRACTICAL SPEED READING TIP – #1 “HOW TO USE YOUR EYES TO TOTALLY INCREASE YOUR READING RATE”.

Sunday, January 17th, 2010

Did you know that the average reading speed is between 200 – 250 words per minute? Over twenty years ago, the United Nations stated that, to keep pace with all the information we are bombarded with, you and I would need to read at 400 wpm (and that was before the advent of email, the internet and texting!)

So, with that in mind, I invite you to follow this strategy which can dramatically increase your reading rate…

Your Eyes

What normally happens while you are reading is that your eyes do the following…
• Jump from word to word and rest on each one…and/or
• Sometimes they skip backwards…and/or
• Wander off the page completely.

Here’s what you do…

• Take in groups of words at a time, even if it is only a pair… that will double your reading speed!)
• Halve the time you stop in-between each group of words
• Make every effort you can to read forwards only
• Stay on the page; focus your eyes and thoughts there.

Finally, T*A*N* – TAKE ACTION NOW

Apply the steps mentioned above. Then let me know how you are progressing.
