Someone who reads a 100 books a year will usually have more knowledge than someone who reads only 2 or 3. Acquiring for Speed The final goal of acquiring information is speed. All things being equal, reading a book in thirty minutes is better than taking an hour. Speed tends to work against volume and simplicity. The faster you go, generally the less information you can absorb and the less discriminating you can be in determining what to acquire. The Acquire Phase can be enhanced by adopting better reading and listening methods.

I’ll discuss some of these methods in Part II of this book. 44 45 The Understand Phase Input is nothing without comprehension. If you don’t understand the surface of what a book is trying to say, the chances of remembering it for an exam or applying it in real life are almost nonexistent. Most people intuitively feel the Understand Phase. The information makes sense even if it still isn’t firmly rooted into your brain. The holistic learning sequence could be seen as taking three layers, each expanding the degree of understanding.

Try to avoid seeing these steps as linear but as part of an ongoing cycle to create understandings. 61 Pinpointing Weaknesses in the Sequence What are your weak links in the chain of holistic learning? Identifying weak points is a matter of regular testing. More broadly, you need to pinpoint where your chronic weaknesses are. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses when it comes to learning. Perhaps you are great at acquiring and understanding but poor at exploring. Or perhaps you can connect ideas easily, but make too many false connections.
