About this course
then think about the last time you had a class about reading.
When was it?
Probably back in primary school, right?
But even then, did the teacher really teach you how to dig deeply into the text, let alone teach you how to implement the knowledge from those books?
My guess is no.
I'm here to help guide you so you can use the best reading strategies. Let me explain more below.
Unlike this course, other reading courses online focus on speed reading and retention.
First, I have not once seen a course like this one that focuses first on the most important thing you have in your possession.
Your lifelong learning mindset.
Without this, any of the actions you take will not have as much potential power.
Second, I have never seen a reading course help you know exactly what to remember from a book. Books are vast and sometimes it's hard to decide what to remember and how to apply the takeaways. This course does.
It's impractical to try and remember and apply everything which is what most people try to do. This course will teach you the best way to approach this problem.
Lastly, I have never seen a reading course focus on strategies for taking action on the knowledge you learn from the books you read.
The reason for reading nonfiction books is either to help you solve a problem or to peak your interests. Either way, if you don't know how to take action then reading is almost pointless!
If this is something you need help with then now is your chance.

The Action module is one of the most important modules in this course as it will combine everything you've learned so far and actually help you to put it out into the world. Taking action is actually going to help you succeed at what you are reaching towards.
This principle is the most important principle of all because anything without action is practically nothing. However, one of the mistakes that most people make is neglecting all the other principles, especially the Study one. But you are different because you know that all the principles play on each other. One without the other makes the big picture incomplete. Now let's get you into the mode of action so you can take everything you've learned so far and make it get to work.

There is bound to be a point in your life where you come to a plateau. Studying on your own can only get you so far, yes, you could experiment until you succeed, but that may not be the most effective way. In this lesson, you will learn why mentors and online courses could be your way out of a plateau you're in and what to look for the best ones available.
Teaching is actually the best teacher.

You have learnt a whole lot in this course. In this lesson, I would like to talk about passing what you've learnt on to more people. It is my belief that the more understanding people in this world become, the better the world will be. If everyone were to take up the reins of lifelong learning it would make a huge difference in the way the world is run right now. I passed this knowledge on to you so that you can pass this knowledge onto others. Together, we can make the world a better place.
