Start a Fact Binder

tip-o-the-morning

88% of wealthy, successful people read an average of 30 minutes each day. Their reading topics? Career-related, self-help, educational, biographies, history, current events and anything related to a major goal or some extracurricular pursuit. While reading is important, retaining important information uncovered in your reading is critical to learning new facts and information. One strategy to do this is the Fact Binder. In your Fact Binder create various topic sections that are meaningful to you. Each day, after reading, add any new facts or information to your Fact Binder. You can even add a section titled: “New Words” where you add any new words you come across in your reading. Writing down what you read has a way of reinforcing what you just read. Abraham Lincoln would write things down 3 times in order to commit them to memory. The physical act of writing somehow acts to create a new neural pathway that  allows the new facts or information to stick. Once a week go over the new information you added. That will help reinforce the learning.
