Becoming an Expert

November 5, 2009 — Leave a comment

Here’s a learning tip.   Reading lots of books is okay, although I find few are really reading much of substance anymore (we’re over taken by video which has made us lazy).  Studying a few great books is better.  A friend recently gave me a great tip on reading to remember. Find a blank page in the front the book and as you read, when you come across a process or description that you really like, make your own index on that blank page.  When you’re done with the book, you’ll have a quick reference guide in the front of your favorite books, allowing you to turn right to the information you need.  I’ve been doing this for the past few months, and it really works.  Try it!
