BHASKAR JYOTI BORAH



          Success requires wisdom. Wisdom is the golden key by which you can open the door of success. This wisdom can be best acquired by reading books that enlightens our purpose in earth. It is by reading books that we get the treasures of distance at our own fist. Business Leaders like Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and Elon Musk who are widely admired by people across the globe are voracious readers. Warren Buffet spends five to six hours per day reading five newspapers and 500 pages of corporate reports; Bill Gates reads 50 books per year and Elon Musk grew up reading two books per day.1 If you want to become ultra successful in your life you must develop the habit of reading books. But to get the fullest benefit of book reading, you must know the art of reading effectively. In this blog, I am going to share with you Six Reading Habits by developing which you can massively transform your life.

1.    Good Concentration: Good concentration is a combination of body, mind and soul. When your energy level, thoughts and purpose of life is aligned, you attain highest level of concentration in your works. Concentration requires attention. Attention comes from an intention to Concentrate and the intention to concentrate develops from interest. Therefore, you must apply your concentration power in the areas where you have intense interest that helps you in your personal growth that is aligned with your purpose in life. Develop the habit of reading books in your most interested areas that serves your purpose. Effective Concentration must be made a habit to derive maximum benefit out from reading. The better concentration you develop and retain by making it a habit, the more developed and effective will be your learning competencies.

2.    Maintaining a Reading Routine: A daily reading routine is instrumental not only for effective reading but also for habitual concentration. It is because a power is developed in you when you repeat the same thing at the same time on a daily basis. If you develop the habit of study at a particular period of time every day, concentration will come to you naturally and effortlessly. Your mind will not drift away easily from your reading. You must therefore, maintain a reading routine on a daily basis to make effective reading a habit.

3.    Avoiding Distractions: Distractions are enemy of effective reading. You must be able to eliminate distractions that distract you from making your reading effective. Never allow yourself to engage in other activities while reading. Don’t mix watching television and reading together; don’t engage yourself in Social Media during reading hours as these activities will lower down your concentration level and deprive you to become an effective reader. Choose a better environment to study which is free from distractions and make it a habit of reading.

4.    Developing Learning Strategies: Your reading must be a part of your learning strategy. You must be careful about choosing your books for reading. Your books must be relevant to you and help you to improve in any of your chosen areas. You must choose your priorities and follow them accordingly.

5.    Taking Important Notes: Taking important notes help you to retain key points from a book. It serves as an important and ready reference for you. Good note taking is an essential skill which will provide you in a greater control of your time, energy and productivity. You will be able to reduce your reading hours drastically if you master the art of taking notes of important points and make it your habit.

6.    Practicing Retrieval:  Memory is knowledge itself. If you remember nothing, you have learnt nothing. Without linking your knowledge with your memory, you will make no progress. You will remain in the same place over and over again. Therefore practice retrieval of information deliberately. This practice will help you retain the information you have read from a book. Practicing to write a short summary of every book you read will help you to become a highly effective reader and you can keep on accelerating your intelligence on a continuous basis.
