Thursday, January 21st, 2010

“HOW TO USE A LONG SLENDER GUIDE TO TOTALLY INCREASE YOUR READING RATE”.

In Tip #1, I wrote about how your eyes move whilst you are reading. And,
how they can either enhance or hinder your speed reading rate. In this post, let’s look at how beneficial it is to use a long slender guide whilst you are reading.

Guides

How many times have you heard someone say, “Don’t use your finger to read. You know how to read. That slows you down.” Using a guide dramatically increases your reading speed.

Here’s what you do…

  • If you were to move your finger faster, that would have been better advice. Your eyes move more smoothly if they have something to follow. Whatever guide you use… finger, a pencil or a thin stick… just use it
  • Don’t use your guide as a ruler – this way you can’t see what’s coming
  • Keep your guide moving in a smooth action under the words
  • The faster you move your guide, the shorter time your eyes fix on words.

Finally, T*A*N* – TAKE ACTION NOW

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