  1. lol thats the worst advice you can give, better off ejaculating than edging
  2. so pretty much a digital commonplace book? I'm talking about a system specifically for getting the most out of self-help books tho, and right now i'm trying to do that with 7 habits book.
  3. The course I'm following teaches comprehension while being as fast as possible. Also, i heard some people say that effective speed reading will have effective comprehension because you're 100% focused on the reading and therefore won't get distracted by thoughts. Just like when you're racing, you'll be more focused on the driving vs being on traffic and scrolling on your phone or something.
  4. I'm fairly new to personal development, and I've recently started to journal. I started a bullet journal/time block notebook, a catch all notebook, a reading log, and a personal dictionary. I also started reading "The 7 habits of highly effective people", and it made me want to make a notebook dedicated to note taking, internalization, and application. Have y'all done something similar to this? If so, I seek advice on how to make one. I asked chat gpt to make a game-plan for this and here's what it generated: ### Notebook Structure 1. **Introduction and Overview** - **Purpose:** Summarize the main goal of the notebook. - **Contents:** A brief overview of what the 7 habits are and what you hope to achieve by following them. 2. **Habit Breakdown** - **Structure for Each Habit:** - **Habit Name and Description:** Detailed explanation of the habit. - **Key Principles:** The foundational principles behind the habit. - **Personal Reflections:** Your thoughts and current status related to this habit. - **Action Plan:** Steps you plan to take to incorporate this habit into your life. - **Daily/Weekly Check-ins:** Space to track your progress and reflect on your experiences. 3. **Weekly Reviews** - **Structure:** - **Achievements:** What went well this week? - **Challenges:** What were the obstacles? - **Adjustments:** What can you do differently next week? 4. **Monthly Summaries** - **Structure:** - **Overall Progress:** How have you improved? - **Habit Strengthening:** Which habits are becoming second nature? - **Areas for Growth:** Which habits need more focus? 5. **Reflection and Goal Setting** - **Structure:** - **Quarterly Reflections:** Deeper reflections every three months. - **Long-term Goals:** How are these habits aligning with your long-term aspirations? ### Detailed Breakdown #### 1. Introduction and Overview - **Purpose:** Write a brief introduction about why you are using this notebook and what you aim to achieve. **Example:** "This notebook is my personal guide to mastering the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. My goal is to integrate these principles into my daily life to improve my personal and professional effectiveness." - **Contents:** - Quick summary of the 7 habits: 1. Be Proactive 2. Begin with the End in Mind 3. Put First Things First 4. Think Win-Win 5. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood 6. Synergize 7. Sharpen the Saw #### 2. Habit Breakdown **Example for Habit 1: Be Proactive** - **Habit Name and Description:** "Be Proactive" focuses on taking responsibility for your own actions and behaviors. - **Key Principles:** - You are responsible for your own life. - Your decisions, not your conditions, determine your path. - **Personal Reflections:** Reflect on how proactive you currently are. Do you take initiative or often react to events? - **Action Plan:** - Identify areas in your life where you can be more proactive. - Set specific goals to take initiative in those areas. - **Daily/Weekly Check-ins:** - Each day, jot down instances where you chose to be proactive. - Weekly, review these instances and note improvements or setbacks. #### 3. Weekly Reviews **Example:** - **Achievements:** "This week, I successfully took charge of my morning routine and felt more productive." - **Challenges:** "I struggled to stay proactive during unexpected work crises." - **Adjustments:** "Next week, I'll set reminders to pause and plan before reacting to unforeseen issues." #### 4. Monthly Summaries **Example:** - **Overall Progress:** "I've become more proactive in my personal life but need to work on it professionally." - **Habit Strengthening:** "Morning routines are now proactive without needing reminders." - **Areas for Growth:** "Focus on staying proactive during high-stress situations at work." #### 5. Reflection and Goal Setting **Quarterly Reflections:** - **Example:** "Reflecting on the past three months, I've seen significant improvement in my ability to take initiative, but there's still room to grow in maintaining a proactive mindset under pressure." **Long-term Goals:** - "By the end of the year, I aim to be consistently proactive in both personal and professional settings, handling stress with a calm and proactive approach." ### Setting Up Your Notebook 1. **Choose Your Medium:** - Digital: Use apps like Notion, Evernote, or OneNote. - Physical: Get a dedicated journal or notebook. 2. **Customize Sections:** - Use tabs or sections to divide the notebook according to the structure outlined. 3. **Consistency:** - Set aside time each day/week for filling out your notebook. - Use prompts and templates to make it easier to reflect and plan.
  5. im doing a speed reading course rn, and ive reached a point where i need to reach 400wpm to continue. i've been struggling and only reached 300 max. Any advise on how to progress?
  6. funny how i was practicing speed reading using the book "the subtle art of not giving a fuck" by Mark Manson and read the chapter "You're wrong about everything" the day before this vid dropped. "Growth is an endlessly iterative process. When we learn something new, we don’t go from “wrong” to “right.” Rather, we go from wrong to slightly less wrong. And when we learn something additional, we go from slightly less wrong to slightly less wrong than that, and then to even less wrong than that, and so on. We are always in the process of approaching truth and perfection without actually ever reaching truth or perfection. We shouldn’t seek to find the ultimate “right” answer for ourselves, but rather, we should seek to chip away at the ways that we’re wrong today so that we can be a little less wrong tomorrow. When viewed from this perspective, personal growth can actually be quite scientific. Our values are our hypotheses: this behavior is good and important; that other behavior is not. Our actions are the experiments; the resulting emotions and thought patterns are our data. There is no correct dogma or perfect ideology. There is only what your experience has shown you to be right for you—and even then, that experience is probably somewhat wrong too. And because you and I and everybody else all have differing needs and personal histories and life circumstances, we will all inevitably come to differing “correct” answers about what our lives mean and how they should be lived. My correct answer involves traveling alone for years on end, living in obscure places, and laughing at my own farts. Or at least that was the correct answer up until recently. That answer will change and evolve, because I change and evolve; and as I grow older and more experienced, I chip away at how wrong I am, becoming less and less wrong every day."
