  • Brain Function Functional Medicine (optimizing brain health) Exercise (for improved brain function) Nutrition (hormone & energy regulation) Meditation (cultivating awareness)
  • Determining Reading Speed Read for 2-minutes Count the number of lines read Divide the number of lines by 2 Multiply by words per line
  • 3 Obstacles to Effective Reading Lack of Focus (slow reading) Subvocalization (JFK Rule) Regression (re-reading sections)
  • Lack of Focus SPEED=FOCUS
  • Subvocalization (JFK Rule) Speaking Speed vs Reading Speed (words per minute) 300wpm 1200wpm Fastest JFK speech JFKs reading speed
  • Eye Movement/Chunking Schools teach reading aloud - bad practice for reading speed Extremely slow readers read word by word Very slow readers read a few words at a time Average readers read a sentence at a time Quick readers read a few sentences at a time - capturing the thought Speed readers practice constant eye movement at quick speeds Use a visual pacer - pen in left hand to initially increase speed
  • Reading Technique Headings (what are the big ideas?) Highlighting (mark, highlight, photograph what you want to review) Varying Speed (vary your speeds depending on content)
  • Components of FLOW Intense & focused concentration Merging of action & awareness Loss of reflective self-consciousness Sense of personal control Distortion of time Intrinsic reward The Ultimate Super-Power
  • Conditions for FLOW Clear Goals Immediate Feedback Balance (Skill=Challenge)
  • Deliberate Practice (talent is not innate or just about practice - there are specific conditions that you can follow to become an expert) Motivation & effort to improve performance Integration of pre-existing knowledge (context) Immediate feedback Repeatedly perform task Being outside of your comfort zone Deliberate Practice is good for learning and improving, FLOW states are good for practicing and processing known information Find balance between being outside your comfort zone and finding FLOW in everyday activities
