3rd FOLLOW UP BLOG FOR SPEEDY READING

Follow-up to 2ND FOLLOW UP BLOG FOR SPEEDY READING from Yentl's WSPA blog

I mentioned last week that there is still rooms to improve for the tapping technique, I worked for a judge two weeks ago, I come across large amount of cases every day, and this allowed me to practice the technique. The past week, I worked at a law firm instead, and this gave me more opportunities to practice speed reading. To evaluate, one of my responsibilities was to close files, which was to go through the cases and check of the information were correct. There was no need to go through them in details, I only needed to look for relevant words, which is similar to speed reading. Through this, I practiced looking for important words. On top of this, I went through the materials with a guide, i.e., a pen which helped me to focus and read faster.

In the last entry, I mentioned to time myself while reading articles for the assignments. I have spent around 10-20 minutes per day in the last week to do this, my speed has increased slightly, and I hope that my speed will increase gradually in the future.

    Hi yentl,

    Fantastic progress! i think that you’ve really taken to using a guide and the scanning technique will really help you in finding important and relevant information.

    Well done and I look forward to reading your final update. Perhaps have a go at timing yourself and compare your wpm and comprehension from when you first attended the workshop.
