3 Reasons Why You Need To Double Your Learning Speed

by Khairie Apirin November 13, 2019

There’s no doubt about it – everyone needs to double their learning speed.

There are plenty of reasons why, but here are the three biggest ones.

1) Because You Can


When it comes to speed learning, many fall into one of two camps; those that believe that it’s too difficult, and those that believe it’s so simple they can do it themselves.

The truth is, it’s a bit of both.

Speed learning can be simple. Anyone can apply the strategies which will enable them to learn at twice their current speed.

BUT – it’s also not just a matter of simply reading faster.

In fact, when you do that, your mind becomes focused on speed, and you compromise your ability to absorb information, which defeats the whole purpose.

Speed learning is something that all of us can do (with the right technique).

And we should absolutely unlock this skill, because…

2) Your Time Is Precious


How many times have you read something for pages and pages but drew a blank?

When you realize it, you go several pages back to re-read the material – only to end up pointlessly repeating the cycle.

Not only is this a waste of your time, but it’s also counterproductive. You start to dismiss the material as bad, when in fact, it could have had precious information that was valuable to you.

To achieve success, it’s important to dedicate time to learning new information and developing new skills.

But more importantly, you want this time to be as productive as possible. You want to increase your knowledge every time you learn something because,

3) Your Self-Improvement Is Directly Tied To Your Learning Speed


The more knowledge you gain, the faster your rate of self-improvement.

In fact, for anyone looking to develop themselves, learning how to learn should be their first priority.

It’s the superpower that can unlock doors to all other skills and knowledge.

Imagine learning multiple languages a year?

Or being able to play a new musical instrument every couple of months?

Or learning multiple skills that can accelerate your career progression?

By learning how to learn, you remove all the barriers to your potential – allowing you to truly become the best version of yourself.
