Do you like reading?
|That’s fine. |
Nowadays, there are so many visual information sources that reading has become kind of old-fashioned.
However, we would like you to give it another try.
We know that school has probably ruined reading for you; no one likes to be forced to do anything. Video also seems much more interactive, dynamic and faster. So we don’t have a lot of arguments to convince you that reading has its benefits as well. But please, have a look at these:
1. Books have fewer distractions than screens that don’t stop showing notifications.
2. Books let you take notes whenever and wherever you want.
3. Books boost creativity and mind mapping. Your imagination has is many times more active when reading than when watching a video.
Give reading a try, Top Three Guide will show you how.

This is Kjell speaking. Definitely not Loki. Loki belongs to the other side. So to those of us who are readers, I think we can all agree that we can always become better at it.
There are so many aspects to reading, right? Selecting the correct books, getting the right information out of them, remembering what you read last time, connecting it to past experiences and so on.
How can we do all of this efficiently?
It seems impossible. Well, it’s definitely not easy. So it’s probably good that you’ve come here to look for help. Top Three Guide will help you to get the most out of your books, to read more books and to understand them better.
I don’t doubt that this will also boost your overall productivity.
So whether you’re a reader or not, you should know that reading is a key component of productivity. (To be fair, it’s probably just us readers by now. In the odd case that a non-reader made it this far: congratulations and celebrations! This is a great first step!).
We can boost our productivity by reading faster, more efficiently and with greater comprehension. While all of this sounds pretty obvious, it really isn’t. When you’re reading you might think you’re getting all of it, but you actually aren’t. Studies suggest that students miss out on about 50% of what the lecturer says. You read that correctly, 50%. That’s half the lecture. I can only imagine how much you’re missing out on when reading or watching a video. So stop overestimating yourself, it’s time to become a more efficient reader.
Now, because both readers and non-readers get bored at some point, we’re going to round it up here. Have a look at our articles below for more information about several aspects of reading. If you’re more of a video-person, we’ve got good news! Some tips are also available in a short video format on Youtube.
