How to read a book?

Here’s how you should read a book from your industry if you are old and cynical and tired of industry jargons.

1. Force yourself to look out for “Eh, that’s new. I didn’t know that.” So you avoid the situation of don’t know what you don’t know. Have the student hat on you know. Avoid the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

2. Then look out for new ways of saying things that follows basic principles of your industry. Lots of authors love new terms to old tricks so to speak. So, look out for “Hang on... isn’t this concept similar to (check against some fundamentals of your industry.)”

3. Then apply your experience. Are some things true in your case? You should have some, “Oh...this is true in my experience.” 

4. Are there concepts worth acting on? Don’t just learn. You need to apply. It’s time to seek out “This is what I can adopt and adapt for my own growth.”

When you have enough confidence.
5. This is my model. Now create your own.
