Medical Students: Here Are 3 Reasons To Increase Your Reading Speed (Plus A Bonus Benefit!)

If you’re a medical student, you know what it’s like to be faced with stacks of texts to get through – by tomorrow morning, please. (And if you have a friend who’s a medical student, you still know what it’s like, because they’re probably always complaining about how much reading they have to do.) Gigantic 800-page volumes of obscure and jargon-laden text is a med school student’s most common nightmare.

Reading faster is really the only way you can conquer your daily reading assignments and efficiently study for your upcoming quizzes and exams.

Less frustration, more results

Reading is essential. Time is valuable. Being a medical student you already know that you sometimes have the choice between taking the time to read and learn, and having free time but running the risk of failing a test or class. But it doesn’t have to be that way, you know.

By increasing your reading speed rate with strategies that eliminate subvocalization, for instance, you can read more texts in less time that before, and still get all the main points of what you read.

The average person reads about 200 to 300 words per minute. A speed reader can as much as triple that rate without sacrificing comprehension and information retention. Now, imagine reading a whole book in 2 hours instead of 6 hours. It’s a lot more efficient, and in the long run it will help you learn more, achieve more, and enjoy more!

Succeeding as a medical student means effectively handling your stress levels, and with speed reading you can keep them under control. You’ll be able to relax, knowing you can efficiently read text of any length, even if it has been assigned at the last minute.

More knowledge in less time

That’s ultimately our goal in this information-centred society, isn’t it? To keep abreast of all the developments. In the medical field, this is even more important, as technology and new discoveries change treatment options and techniques on an almost daily basis.

That’s one reason why FOMO, or the fear of missing out, doesn’t solely pertain to social events and cultural practices. You know that there’s always someone else in your class who spends all day studying, and studying, and studying, while you’re taking a 1-hour break for some yoga. Even if your body appreciates the break, you might not be getting the full satisfaction out of your yoga session, if all you can do is worry that you shouldn’t be on your mat, but in the library studying your 956-page book on embryology.

By improving your reading speed through simple hacks (such as using your index finger to navigate your eyes to read faster) and learning how to mute that voice in your head that sounds out what you’re reading, you will instantly become more efficient, and that will give you the extra time you need.

As a result of even a few hours of speed reading study, you’ll know how to acquire more knowledge in less time. What this means for your social life … is that you actually get to have one.

Effective strategic learning

No matter how fascinating you find the topic, molecular cell biology is only so much fun. There will be classes and books you will struggle with. They will be uninteresting, written in a very dry, jargon-y way, and will probably make you hate yourself for even thinking about going to med school in the first place.

Speed reading can be a lifesaver. If you always assumed that the only thing it would give you is speed, think again. When you know the tricks, you’ll also be improving your comprehension of what you read. Here’s why: one aspect of speed reading is learning to be selective about what you speed read, and what you don’t.

For instance, going over a chapter on arthritic joints that contains information you’ve read in another book gives you the opportunity to speed read it, and only slow down where new information or new perspectives are presented.

Ultimately, speed reading is about optimizing your reading rate. You need to adapt your reading speed to the demands of, and your familiarity with, what you read.

Be on top of new developments – and your own curriculum

An extra bonus that most people forget about when it comes to speed reading is the ability it gives you to succeed. When you’ve got the extra time and the reading skills to get through all of the latest journal articles in your chosen field, you’ll already be miles ahead of the competition, and a better practitioner in the end. While you’re in school, your success comes in part from your ability to manage your study load in a way that doesn’t overwhelm you – and speed reading does that, too.

Programs like 7 Speed Reading™ help you eliminate bad reading habits and learn strategies to read faster while respecting the time it takes to process and understand new information. Becoming a speed reader isn’t about indiscriminately speed reading everything that comes your way. It’s simply a strategy to learn more in less time, and still have the time to enjoy student life.

4 Skills Every Millennial Needs In 2016

Where do I start? A study by Change for Education recently revealed that 6 in 10 millennials lack basic tech skills. Mind-boggling, right?

It turns out that even though we spend about 35 hours per week on digital media, millennials tend to be unexpectedly illiterate when it comes to using technology to solve simple problems. The result, the nonprofit group says, is that about 13 million US millennials are oblivious to the impact their poor tech skills are having on their future success.

The research brought to light a paradox: that digital natives are not necessarily tech savvy.

The good news is that this is something we can, and should, fix.

I’ll only highlight one more thing from this particular research study, but it’s critically important.

You can boost your earnings by one-third with a small boost to your tech skills.

Yes, that’s all it takes to land a more profitable job – simply improve some easy tech skills.

So which skills are essential?

Vocabulary Improvement

Okay, okay, it’s not like your life always depends on the exact words you choose to use (although I could think of a couple of scenarios where specific words could put you in great danger). The thing is, words matter. Words create our reality and help us make sense of our experiences. But more importantly, words help us think better, think critically, and think more.

Improving your vocabulary means having more concepts to think about and speak with. A good vocabulary helps you make the best first impressions, whether that’s with a new acquaintance or a job interviewer.

Speed Reading

Going through your Facebook feed with lightning fast speed doesn’t qualify as speed reading. (What a pity, I know!)

Being a speed reader is fun. Scratch that. It is essential. Just consider the sheer amount of reading you need to go through every day right now. Now think about all of the text you could be absorbing if you could do that reading even faster. The knowledge you can potentially accumulate in just a few weeks is mind-blowing.

Touch Typing

Yes, we might be speaking in emojis these days rather than actual words, and retinal scanning may replace passwords for online banking at some point, but for now, written communication via conventional words is not going away.

So learn to touch type. And learn it the right way – not that awkward hunt and peck method that makes you look like you’re a Martian seeing a QWERTY keyboard for the first time.

Digital communication is here to stay. From catching up with your friends to taking online courses boosting your knowledge in multiple fields, you need touch typing efficiency more than ever.

Your soft skills and personality might impress a potential employer, but you also need hard skills like how to make a presentation and efficiently operate software. You need the ability to present data in a comprehensible visual way, using words as well as images, and your keyboarding speed has an impact on how well you do that.

IT Skills For Everyone

If you think that IT tech skills are only something designers, programmers, and other tech-related professionals need, think again.

Basic skills such as email etiquette, understanding and compiling spreadsheets, interpreting and reporting graphic and numeric illustrations, and of course doing sound online research are survival skills in the competitive marketplace – and if you don’t have those skills, you won’t be winning that competition.

To take your career into the next decade, even a millenial needs to focus on keeping up to speed on these essential tech tools.

Your Brain On Books: How The Medium Affects The Experience

Are you a traditional print-based reader, or are you following the digital reading trend? You might not be aware of this, but the medium you choose actually affects the whole reading experience, from how pleasurable you find the process to how well you comprehend and remember what you’ve read. These and more factors are all dependent on whether you’re reading on a flat screen or with a printed book in your hand.

A great deal of scientific literature has been devoted to how reading affects our brain. Researchers have discovered that reading a story actually activates brain regions that are associated with and necessary for the physical act we’re reading about (such as swimming, cycling, driving, or fighting), even though our bodies aren’t in fact going through those motions.

Neuroscientists also discovered that it’s not just physical activities that are replicated during reading. For instance, when we’re reading odor-related words such as coffee or perfume, the olfactory cortex – the brain region associated with the sense of smell – lights up.

A study at Emory University explains how metaphors, a linguistic device used by authors to convey meaning through bold imagery, also helps activate associated brain regions. If you read about a velvet voice, the region of your brain associated with sensory stimuli and recognition is activated. The study (appropriately and aptly titled “Metaphorically Feeling”) emphasizes how language is physiologically and mentally experienced.

Reading activates and engages your entire body and brain. Now we have a new question: how does the medium affect this experience? Does it enhance or impede the neurological functioning stimulated by the reading process?


Ever since the introduction of tablets and e-readers, digital reading has come in for a fair amount of backlash. Hardcore print book fans consider it inferior, while others even go so far as to call it an ineffective and superficial way of reading.

The argument that technology changes the way we read is not in question, and scientists back up these and other claims with their study findings.

While some studies argue that reading on screens impedes comprehension, there is a fair amount of opposing literature that argues against this conclusion. Reading on screens doesn’t compromise reading comprehension, they say, but there is no cut and dried answer; the study results are at best confusing and rather inconclusive on the matter.

Reading the Old-Fashioned Way

Reading lets us see through another person’s eyes, and this experience seems to intensify when we read in a way that engages our sense of touch. Interacting with a book’s pages, touching the page as you turn it, moving your eyes as you read line after line provides a unique sensory experience that many people complain is still missing from e-reading. A tablet cannot yet offer the complete sensory package that’s part and parcel of reading a print book.

But aside from this, reading print books seems to favor comprehension. Studies show that e-reading is cognitively heavy which might explain why we cannot recall much of what we read on screens after we’re done.

To make matters more complicated, there’s also a widely held belief that people approach print reading in a more focused and serious manner than they do e-reading.  We get used to using a skim and scan method when surfing the web, and that superficial process seems to translate to e-reading in general. How many times have you printed out a compelling article just because you wanted to experience it more viscerally?

What is more, many people argue that reading is a spatial as well as a cognitive effort. When we read we unconsciously chart our reading journey by flagging key moments in a story in relation to where we read about them on the page.

For instance, you’ll instinctively remember that the horrible massacre in the crime novel you’re reading was described in the second paragraph on the right-hand page of the previous chapter. You don’t get these physical markers when you’re e-reading, because one page is replaced by an identical one as you click and/or scroll, providing no clue as to how to pinpoint significant plot twists spatially.

This cognitive landscape we make up in our minds as we read appears to facilitate comprehension, reasoning, and storytelling. It helps us structure what we read in a logical sequence, something that is compromised in e-reading, it seems.

Ultimately it’s a personal choice. You might prefer reading digitally or remain faithful to your earlier reading habits – and your choice might change over time. It’s a highly subjective issue; people don’t always agree even about their own reading experiences, and the impact on comprehension. It will require more research, and more reading, to find out if and how this matter can be resolved.

What Will Happen When You Learn To Speed Read?

You’ll see things differently. Speed reading is like a window into a world you didn’t know was there. It affords you a new pair of eyes to look at the world and a new way of making sense of its mechanics and presumptions.

Improve your general knowledge of the world

When you speed read, you can improve your knowledge on pretty much anything. You can learn about international news and history. You can learn a new skill, or get a second degree online, simply because speed reading saves you a lot of time.

Be on top of new developments in your profession and industry

In our fast-paced world, those who can make the most of their time are the ones who make it. Speed reading on its own won’t make you successful, but it will offer you the knowledge to conquer the world through the insights you gain.

Become a fun and interesting person in social situations

There are two kinds of people you meet in parties, dinners and other social gatherings: those with the most fascinating stories to tell and those who tell the same old story over and over again.

With speed reading you can be the popular person with fascinating stories to tell, little known facts to share, and amazing knowledge on pretty much any topic other people introduce into the conversation.

Improve your memory and your focus

Reading at 250 or more words per minute requires a great deal of attention and focus. Speed reading takes effort, at least at first, because it requires tremendous energy to read fast and deep process what you read at the same time.

That’s why speed reading will improve your memory and focus, two abilities that can improve many other aspects of your life at the same time.

Empower yourself and make more money

Speed reading helps you accumulate knowledge faster. The more knowledge you have, the more empowered you are – and the more empowered you are, the more money you will be able to make in your life.

It’s no coincidence that the most successful people are avid readers. The wealth of the world lies in the pages of a book. It’s in books that you will find the ideas that spur your creativity to create something worthwhile.

These are just a few benefits of learning to speed read. It will feel like you’re finally unlocking your own potential and understanding how ideas and dreams interconnect to lead to success in every aspect of your life.

Become A Time Management Pro: Hone These Skills

Imagine being able to experience time differently. Imagine that time moves more slowly so that you can fit more into every hour and day. This might sound like science fiction, but the fact is that you can change your perception of time simply by changing the way you use that time. In other words, you can manage time by becoming more efficient at what you do.

Becoming a time management pro rests on one principle: “work smarter, not harder.” But don’t fill your pantry with energy drinks yet – first you need the right time management skills.

Touch Typing

We’re touch typing all the time, whether we’re on our smartphones, tablets, or laptops. Most office-bound professionals and students spend a great deal of their time at a keyboard.

By learning to touch type with the right techniques and using the right ergonomics, you can save up to hundreds of hours per year. That’s a lot of time you can then invest in a hobby, new project, or business idea.

Speed Reading

Apart from a lot of keyboarding, we’re also doing a lot of reading. Reading is a good thing; we read to learn, we read to do better in life. But it takes up a lot of time.

We’ve been reading for thousands of years, but few people have bothered to make reading more time-efficient. Fewer still have bothered to share their own speed reading secrets with others, and that’s a shame. The information era is a reality and we need all the speed reading skills we can get. Speed reading involves techniques that rid you of time-consuming reading habits such as subvocalisation and regression, and grant you new techniques and methods to read more in less time.

Take some time to learn these techniques, and you will save an immense amount of time in the future.


Touch typing and speed reading do not work in vacuum to save you time. You need a plan if you really want to use that saved time in the best possible way.

There are many time management and productivity tools and apps you can use to track your tasks, chores, and projects. Many people, however, find that they have a more concrete idea as to what they must complete if they are carrying around a print schedule or organizer.

Experiment with both digital applications and the traditional notebooks to see what makes you stick to your deadlines. Having a clear picture of what you have to achieve every day helps you focus and avoid distractions.

Schedule Time for Interruptions

One reason why most people give up on their time management efforts is that they fail to include one gargantuan time-sucking element in their schedules: the dreaded interruption.

Whether you’re allotting time for checking your email, accepting a phone call, or dealing with an impromptu walk-in customer, you need to allow some flexibility for interruptions. If you don’t, you’ll find yourself falling behind no matter how efficient you are.

Schedule Time To Think

Another thing that will help you manage your time better is assigning time to thinking.

Our lives mostly revolve around doing, creating, and producing. Make sure you devote a percentage of your day to thinking about what you’re doing, creating, and producing. It lets you put your tasks and responsibilities into perspective, and helps you find shortcuts to achieve more in less time and with less effort.

Learn to Say No

This might be regarded a soft skill but it is nonetheless crucial for managing your time well.

Put a “do not disturb” sign outside your office or room. Shut off any alerts from social media and email notifications.

Have a time block where you don’t accept calls or see people. If you start respecting your time, others will too, and the result will be increased productivity and out-of-this-world time management.

Certified Financial Planner Neal Frankle Accepted The Challenge of Being Interviewed By 7 Speed Reading Team

Neal Frankle


Learning how to read transforms a child’s world. Learning how to speed read can transform an adult’s life for the better, as the time saved and the skills learned can be immediately applied to ways to get ahead in the workplace: improving office communication, enhancing a project portfolio, competing for a raise. And once that self-improvement work has started paying off in terms of a higher salary, learning how to invest and manage money will guarantee that all of the effort leads to long-lasting results. One person who’s familiar with the power of transformation and the importance of money management is certified financial planner Neal Frankle, who runs the website WealthPilgrim.com.

7SR: For many people, the terms “investment” and “financial planning” don’t have much real-world impact; when you’re struggling to make ends meet, it might seem as if there’s no extra money to spare for investment, and the only financial planning necessary is how to stretch each paycheck to cover both groceries and rent. How can someone make the mental step over barriers like these and really think about the future when it comes to wealth?

I appreciate this situation. It is difficult to think about the future when the present is difficult.  The thing is, the future is going to become the present soon enough. It may be tough, but you have nothing to lose by trying.  You may not be able to completely transform your financial situation – but you can improve it.   

I suggest that people in situations like these break down their current pressures into bite-sized parts.  Right now, are you dealing with:

Insufficient income?

Too much debt?

Bad credit?

Out of control spending?

Sit down for 30 minutes with a trusted friend who will act as your accountability partner.  Be as objective as you can.  List each challenge and work out a game plan to deal with one issue at a time.   Then, set up weekly meetings with your accountability partner to report on your progress.  Once you’ve worked your way out of the current stress, build a game plan to create the financial future you want.

This approach costs you nothing and moves you forward towards improving your financial life.

7SR: Do people need to talk with someone who specializes in financial planning, or do you have some books that you can recommend?

I think most people do benefit by speaking with a professional planner but I am biased.  At the same time, many people don’t need a financial advisor.  If your problem is debt or a bad credit score, you might want to consult with experts in that field.  If your challenge is spending, take advantage of an accountability partner as I suggested above.

Even if you do eventually speak with a professional it’s to your advantage to educate yourself as much as possible so you can ask good questions and better understand the advice.  One of my favorite books is “The Wealthy Barber” by David Chilton.  Also, I’ve written two books and I am very proud of each of them.  “Why Smart People Lose A Fortune” and “Money Academy for Couples” (available on Amazon).  The first explains how investments work and the second is a resource for couples to get their financial lives aligned and on track. Again, I’m biased so please take my advice with a grain of salt.

7SR: Credit is important when it comes to things like car loans and mortgages, and even in some job applications. When should people start thinking about establishing their credit: in high school, in college, or after they have a steady job?

On the one hand, the earlier you start the better.  Having said that, it’s important to begin building on a strong foundation. If you start using credit cards, make sure you can afford to make your full payments every month.   It is never good to carry credit card debt and rack up expensive interest costs.

7SR: Your “Ask Neal A Question” website option is a great way to have people connect with you and share information. How many queries do you get each week, and what’s the most common topic?

I usually get about a dozen questions a week.  The inquiries are usually split between how to invest money and how to collect on a loan the readers made to friends or family.

7SR: What does “appropriate spending” mean to you?

Your financial strength is a balance between spending, income and assets.   If you spend more than you have coming in, that might be out of balance.  But if your assets are sufficiently large such that you can sustain yourself and still spend down some of your assets, that could be OK too.

So if you want to understand “appropriate spending” first look at what your means are.   That includes income from wages, pensions, Social Security, rents and investments.   As long as you spend less than that (and your “spending” must include what you set aside for the future) you are going to be in great shape.
