How to Read a Book The Right Way

Matt Morris, an entrepreneur and trainer I recently found on YouTube has an interesting video available to all his subscribers. He shares how you can read a book for maximum potential, so it doesn’t end up being wasted space in your brain that just saunters but doesn’t actually flourish.

Entrepreneur, success, money, motivation, inspiration, wealth, cash, investing, quotes, billionaire, career success, mindset, innovation, attitude, focus, skills, attraction, law of attraction, prosperous, abundance, business, net work, bio, story, grind, company, hard work, determination, goal setting, self growth, self development, personal growth, personal development, greatness, learning, financial, Mark Cuban, change, dream, videos, startups, millionaire, life, effective habits, opportunity, reading, failure, failing, persistent, progress, get rich, riches, how to make money online, how to be successful, how to reach your maximum potential, psychology, how to build your personal brand, how to meditate, meditation, living a radiant life, how to accomplish your goals, how to achieve your goals, how to create your own destiny, how to increase your productivity, how to be productive, energy, powerful

Now, I know I know, how hard is it to read?! You’d think this article was directed towards 5 year olds. Rest assured, anyone who has ever felt like they read a book and will never get any value from that read, specifically because they don’t remember what it was about and did not take thorough notes..,this video is for you.

Broken down for you, here is your tools & steps for getting maximum potential from your reading:

Tools Needed:

1) The book

2) A journal/notebook

3) A pen

4) A highlighter

Steps:

1) Read through the book and highlight (in the book) your favorite parts

2) Re-write the highlighted parts in your journal

3) Read through your notes after you finish it

4) Highlight the most important notes

5) Turn to those chunks of wisdom whenever you need them

This not only stocks up information that you can turn to at a later time, but it also ingrains the principles in your head by writing them down & highlighting them.
