This is about my daily life and the actions I take to accomplish goals and get where I’d like to be.

Taking the First Step to Success! Speed Reading

What do I want?

With the creation of this website I find myself at a point where I feel like I’m at square one. I have a clean slate. I have a bit of knowledge (regarding websites and their creation) under my belt and already have a small headstart, just enough to keep me motivated, however it’s like I’m looking across a vast, infinite blue ocean and I’ve only got a row boat to challenge it with.
I’m no boat builder, but I do know how to read and I have a capacity to learn so It’s up to me to build something that’s going to allow me to sail (or even propel) myself into higher seas, to explore places I’ve never been and to enjoy the seemingly small yet beautiful things Earth has to offer.

How will I achieve this?

I need more knowledge and I know I’m going to begin reading ALOT. Once I’ve found an interesting topic I’d like to learn about it from various books to begin with and then tweak my knowledge and beliefs by taking action! This excites me beyond anything I’ve ever done and I finally feel like I’m headed in the right direction.

So if I’m going to be reading a lot then I also know that I need to learn to read faster as I’m quite a slow reader. I sound out the words in my head and often have to repeat the same paragraphs or passages I’ve already skimmed over.
Therefore the first step in this journey is learning how to speed read!

I’ve done a search on google for ‘speed reading’ and there are various options available, like physical books, digital books, paid video tutorials and even paid software, all of which says it’s possible to do in under 24 hours. I feel like this is something I’m going to find difficult because I’m not a strong reader, but I’m going to give it my best shot.
