I’ve been practicing speed reading drills on and off.
I started with some basic techniques like using the finger as a guide and pushing my rate.
In fact, I started with the 4, 3, 2, 1 method. (where I read for 4 minutes and then, I try to read the same amount of text in 3 minutes, then 2 and then 1 min)
Then I worked on chunking groups of words.
I played around with some drill suggested by Tim Ferris. I couldn’t quite grasp it.
I even tried using a metronome to set different tempos.
And now, for the past few months I’ve been just focusing on trying to read a page a minute.
I’ve been patient but I can’t seem to increase my natural reading rate past 260-270 wpms.
I’m looking for some new techniques because I’ve been doing isn’t working.
I’ve tried reducing sub-vocalization but that just frustrates me.
Anyone who’ve had this issue and got through it?
