Summary: Successful CEOs put their personal growth first. Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Larry Page are all known for reading one book every week. They are busy too. So what do they do differently?

Jim Kwik, memory and brain performance coach explains how you can achieve the same speed of learning with the 3 Rs technique.

About the Video

Reading a book every week is a powerful way to boost your overall speed of personal growth and level up in every area of your life that matters most to you.

The problem is that we forget most of what we read.

The average person remembers only about 10% of what they read between the pages of a book. So how can we increase that and learn faster?

Jim Kwik shares a simple technique in the video above that will not only let you finish the book you’re reading in a week — but also remember what you’ve learned from it.
