If you can read four-times faster with greater comprehension, and be able to retain that information, how would that make you feel? What would you accomplish? If you could remember people's names effortlessly, what would that do to your confidence? Your relationships? How about be able to learn a language in months? Not years, but months…Continue reading

How To Read Faster With Better Comprehension – Speed Reading

I was never a big reader. I have no idea how I made it through school. I would read a sentence and almost immediately forget what I had read. Multiply that by a few pages and trying to recall written information was a fairly difficult task. Especially if it was ‘technical’ content, then I would have to go back and re-read many times over. Just so I can fully understand what I had gone through. I was fortunate enough to study Information Technology at university where there was not much reading to be done. Otherwise, it would have been an even tougher journey for me academically…Continue reading

World's Quickest Speed Reading Course

I was never a reader. I didn’t read much at school and even throughout my university life. I have no idea how I passed but I was quite fortunate that I did. Then again, studying Information Systems didn’t exactly present you with library of texts to consume. I use to see leaflets and flyers around uni for speed reading claiming that you can read twice as fast and improve comprehension, but I just didn’t take it seriously and to an extent, didn’t believe it…Continue reading

How To Write A Book In 10 Days

I wrote my first book, The Yellow Elephant, in just 10 days. It is just over 200 pages and 40,000 words.

I was horrified of speaking to a group people, anxious that I’d forget or say something silly. I barely even read as I’d get mentally exhausted when attempting to read, and re-read, and re-read, only to forget what I had read!…Continue reading
