Making Masters

Becoming a Superlearner

I will increase the speed and quality of my information consumption so I can use a more diverse set of research sources in my teaching to others. In addition to mastering specific subject matter, I want to be able to make more masters (by educating and coaching others). This requires fitting more reading into my limited free time, as well as improving comprehension and recall.

Goals

  • By July 31st, I will increase my reading speed to be able to complete one 200-page book + two news periodicals in 5 hours (approaching 300 wpm), with at least 80% retention, allowing me to fit this into my M-F workweek.
  • By August 30th, I will increase my reading speed and comprehension to be able to complete a technical 300 page book in under 4 hours, with at least 90% retention, allowing me to do deep research on a topic in a single day.
  • By September 31st, I will be able to read a 2400 word article in 5 minutes, with at least 70% retention (approaching 600 wpm), so I can quickly consume longform articles on websites before determining if they are worth sharing or adding to research files.
