Improvement Pill here how to read a
book a week? As cliche as it sounds we all know that people who read succeed I
mean look at the numbers eighty-five percent of millionaires read at least
two books per month while 25 percent of the entire American population hasn’t
even read a single book all of last year so what’s the best way to actually get
yourself to start reading and at a good pace so that you can succeed too well
you can basically guarantee that you’ll read a book a week by taking advantage
of three psychological tricks the first is something called implementation
intention basically setting an appointment see the biggest problem when
it comes to reading is actually getting started so many people buy books that
they’re interested in and say to themselves oh I’ll definitely read this
and guess what the book just sits there on their shelf never to be touched again
by physically writing down the time and place of when you’ll start reading a
book you’re essentially setting up an appointment to do so and think about it
we don’t really miss our appointments when was the last time you completely
skip a job interview or a visit to your doctor sure you might have been late but
when you set an appointment you know that you have to show up and you usually
do the second psychological trick – reading
a book a week is to use what’s called chunking basically breaking down a big
task into smaller ones one of the main reasons people start reading books and
never finish is because the task seems way too big it feels like we can’t do it
just take a look at the average non-fiction book which is about 200
pages long how long do you think it takes to read that entire thing in one
sitting you’re probably thinking 1015 hours maybe well in reality the average
human can read a 200-page book in about five hours which means you really only
have to spend 45 minutes a day reading which probably accounts to just a
chapter or two so instead of saying okay I’m gonna read tomorrow right out of
lunch at home it’s much more effective to say okay I’ll read the next chapter
tomorrow after lunch at home when you break down a book – its chapters and
even further – its subsections which most nonfiction books have then your
brain will no longer see it as a huge obstacle that you have to overcome
instead of thinking oh my god this is gonna take forever you’ll think ah
that’s easy I can definitely do that and finally the last psychological trick to
reading a book a week is to use what’s called temptation bundling basically
taking a task that you don’t enjoy that much and it’s
touching it to something that you really really enjoy for example you can tell
yourself that after every chapter or subsection of a chapter you read
you’re gonna reward yourself with the next episode or the next segment of that
TV show you love watching by doing this just a couple of times it will actually
start to feel good to read because your brain will start to associate it with
something very pleasurable it’s gonna think wow every time I read a chapter or
subsection I feel great after now what you might find is that you actually
start to read more chapters than you need by combining all of these three
tricks you’ll end up with something like this okay tomorrow after lunch at home
I’ll read the next chapter of my book and for every chapter I read I get to
watch the next segment of the new episode of Game of Thrones try this out
and I guarantee that you’ll find yourself reading a lot more this episode
