In recent years, I have tried various techniques to optimize my reading and achieve three goals: read fast, understand what I’ve read and to remember everything.

We all have hectic lives and almost never have time to read.

In fact, we always have those moments that we are not doing much.

  • when we are in a waiting room
  • waiting for someone who is late
  • on the train going to meet friends
  • commuting
  • or before bed

If we add up all this, we realize that we have some free time that we can use to read instead of browsing social networks, games or just complain about life 🙂

“There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.”

Socrates

1. Have a dedicated place

I chose a place in my house dedicated to reading. This means that when I go to a particular part of my home, my brain knows that it is time to read.

In the book “The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and in Business,” Charles Duhigg calls this a “Cue.”

One of the most useful habits you can develop is to train your brain to do something when you see a site.

My table reminds me of working, my bed – sleeping, and if I want to run I leave my running shoes next to the door.

2. Prepare yourself before reading

One thing that has dramatically changed my understanding and the speed of reading is before I start a new book, I try to extract the maximum information from its summary.

I also search on Youtube the book reviews. That way, I don’t go into it totally unprepared.

3. Use multiple senses

This tip, in my opinion, is the most important. I use the audiobook at 2x speed, while I follow the physical book.

Books have an average of 300 pages. Many of us are intimidated by its size. But if we use the audiobook, at 1x speed, we notice that it can be read in 9 hours. It doesn’t seem so hard anymore, does it?

What if we use the audiobook at 2x speed? The book can be read in 4.5 hours. Fantastic, isn’t it? This simple fact significantly stimulates our willingness to get started.

Besides, you use 2 senses: viewing, and listening.

6 tips for how to read faster and remember everything - Audiobook

Audiobooks help you to read faster

Researches within the field of learning have shown that some people are more visual, others more auditory, or more kinesthetic.

The more sences we use in the learning process, the better results we get.

Another benefit; it forces you to stay focused. When you are just reading it’s easier to get distracted with outside noises.

And if you want to have a paperless life like me, buy the ebook and use the iOS / Android app called Voice Dream. It converts the text into speech, allowing you to see the words/phrases while listening to the audio.

4. Make strategic pauses

In those parts of the book that are important to you, stop and reflect on the possibilities of using it in your life, connect the new information to old information.

And in those AHA moments, it’s better to make a pause. Maybe you’d go for a walk, or do something else. Because these are the points that will really resonate in your head and make you evolve.

5. Organize the information

The person who says he knows what he thinks but cannot express it usually does not know what he thinks.

Mortimer J. Adler

Here I use mainly 2 techniques:

  1. I outline and summarize the essential parts of the book.
  2. At the end of each chapter, I make a mind map, where I simplify all the critical information of the book, forcing me to link one theme to another. It’s easy to review it later. Plus, as a designer, it’s the kind of task I happily make.

6. Articulate what you’ve learned

Review your notes and mind maps regularly, try to explain the content of the book to others, make connections with other information you previously acquired, and especially, try to apply the new knowledge into your life.

I never allow myself to hold an opinion on anything that I don’t know the other side’s argument better than they do

Charlie Munger

Because in the end, the important thing is not the number of books you have on your shelf, but all that you’ve learned and transformed into wisdom through reflections and actions.

And I also would like to share the books that changed the way I think, live, and work. Please share with us yours.

Minimalism is all about freedom, it’s about clearing clutter, making careful choices, so we can focus on what’s important, and find happiness in life.

Any half-awake materialist well knows – that which you hold holds you.

Tom Robbins

That doesn’t mean there’s something wrong about owning things.

The problem is that we tend to buy everything that we like or might need, impulsively, without considering its real benefits.

The average American spends 8 hours a week cleaning and dealing with stuff, rather than learning something new, traveling or enjoying family.

Having fewer possessions is to have more free time and also allows you to focus on the quality of your belongings since you spend less money on things that you don’t need.

In this post, I’m going to share with you how I organized my home office.

Setting up my home office

There’s no rule for the ideal home office. The first step is to consider your requirements for working – concentrating on what’s essential to your workflow.

Some people might need lots of pens and papers while others, professional speakers.

After setting up some different home offices for myself (below you see 2 of them), I’m gonna share my ideal workspace:

The Room

I live in a studio apartment, however, if you have multiple rooms, choose one that gets sunlight. Working in a bright room definitely increases productivity.

As Berlin is dark 5 months per year, the solution for me was to put a big mirror against the window. It made the room brighter and more spacious.

As a minimalist, I discard everything that distracts me, so that’s why in my home office I don’t have fancy posters and family pictures.

While neutrals and grey tones are a hallmark of the minimalist movement, I tried to insert some bright, colorful spots to the furniture to take away the boredom of the space.

Desk

There’s one mandatory requirement for choosing a proper desk: it must balance between accommodating all your essential working tools and fitting well in your room.

The second requirement is ergonomics. I strongly recommend that you buy a sit-stand desk, because studies are showing the many benefits of standing up during the workday.

I don’t need a big desk, because I have only a computer as my essential tool and I’m trying hard to go paperless as well.

As soon as I arrived here in Berlin, I bought an Ergotron WorkFit-P Sit-Stand Workstation which fits in both requirements, and it’s portable – if I have to move to another city, or even another country, it’ll be easy to take it with me.

After a couple of months using it along with a MacBook Air, I realized that I was going to stay for a long time here and I extended my renting contract for 2 more years. It was time to build a good working space.

I bought a real sit-stand desk, it has 120 x 80cm and fits perfectly into my small room.

A minimal home office is about clearing the distractions and focusing on the ergonomics, boasting your creativity and productivity.
Working at my home office in a sit-stand desk

Chair

This is a no-brainer, after using a Herman Miller chair, you will never want anything else. In Brazil, I have a Mirra Chair.

Yes, it’s an expensive chair, but it has 10 years warranty, and it’s a piece of art regarding ergonomics.

For my new home office, I bought the Sayl model, which is less expensive but it’s also very flexible and durable.

A minimal home office is about clearing the distractions and focusing on the ergonomics, boasting your creativity and productivity.
Working at my home office – Sayl Chair

Computer

If a computer is as essential for you as it is for me (I bet it is), you should have the best notebook on the market. And no, not a desktop computer, a laptop.

A laptop gives you freedom, you can do your work in a coffee shop, you can visit your clients, and most importantly, you have the flexibility to travel and keep working.

That’s why I replaced my MacBook Air with a MacBook Pro 15” (now I have the 2017 MacBook Pro).

It has the maximum memory available (16gb) and proper storage (512gb SSD), the retina display is just perfect, and it’s the biggest screen that Apple offers.

But you will agree with me, working on a laptop is not comfortable.

The size of the screen matters especially for those who work in the creative field. That’s why a bought a Dell 27” 4k display monitor. It’s the best cost-benefit in the market.

Another benefit of having an external display, as my home office is my living room, it allows me to watch movies on a bigger screen!

Other devices

I must have a backup system, and you should have one as well.

I have an Apple’s AirPort Time Capsule that works as my Wifi router and also makes automatic daily backups from my computer.

As soon as I finish a project, I back it up on my Western Digital My Passport 3TB and delete it from my computer.

Monthly I back the WD Passport content to the Time Capsule.

How’s your home office?

Feel free to share with us pictures and a description of your workspace, we have a great home office inspiration post.

Maybe we can add your home office there.

You probably have your favorite superhero, since the mid-1930’s they became trendy.

History shows that the 16th century was rich regarding interesting personalities and remarkable facts.

How would be if some of our favorite characters – including villains – were born at that time?

In an interesting exercise, the photographer Sacha Goldberger used some techniques to compose portraits of some famous names in pop culture.

The world is upside down. When you watch the news, it looks like the 3rd World War is coming. You see your foreign friends being discriminated more than ever. You get anxious and sometimes depressed. The big question is: what can I do?

Looking for the cause

In 2005, a study conducted by Arizona State University concluded prejudice is hard-wired into the human brain through evolution as an adaptive response to protect our prehistoric ancestors from danger.

“By nature, people are group-living animals… It was adaptive for our ancestors to be attuned to those outside the group who posed threats such as to physical security, health or economic resources, and to respond to these different kinds of threats in ways tailored to have a good chance of reducing them”. Says Steven Neuberg, ASU professor of social psychology, who authored the study with doctoral student Catherine Cottrell.

If by nature, we use prejudice to protect our group, the actual moment doesn’t help at all. Jobs are disappearing because of technology. Very soon we will be living together with robots powered by AI, they will do all the hard work for us. This fact is causing a lot of stress; people are afraid of their future.

Security goes down

Prejudice goes up

But, is there a solution?

Definitely yes! And definitely with technology. The point is that technology is solving all our problems related to our health and economic resources.

For the first time in history, we are about to have enough resources for the whole humanity. We don’t need to protect our group’s food, energy; our basic needs soon will be abundant.

Technology is also liberating us from the dirty, meaningless jobs.

We shouldn’t be living in the economy of scarcity anymore; We have the chance to live in peace!

This complicated process of changing society can take a long time. But we have a solution to accelerate this process; it’s called: the internet.

On the web, information can spread at the speed of light, but it needs our participation.

Political billboard in Berlin. Design activism
The digitalization changes everything. When does politics change? – Asks one candidate in Germany.

We should be more aware of politics, economy, technology. We should be thinking how we are going to rearrange our political system, society, and economy.

Read this interesting article. Watch “Banking on Bitcoin” on Netflix.
Do you know anything about Blockchain?

Start thinking about these themes. Share and discuss.

How can designers help?

Graphic design activism started a long time ago in the 1860s with the Suffragette movement. The voices of graphic designers regularly bubble up during times of social and political change. Recommended book: Design Activism by Alastair Fuad-Luke.

If you feel you should do something about it, you can start side projects to spread this kind of information. Find your tone. You can be more explicitly like Emory Douglas, or funny like Banksy.

design activism: suffragette movement

design activism - Cinismo Ilustrado

design activism - Emory Douglas

design activism - sexuality
ViralNomad
design activism - fight poverty

But for many people, politics, society, and economy are not exciting topics. If that’s your case, craft your art around love.

“It’s already been sung, but it can’t be said enough. All you need is love!” – Loveboat Captain, Pearl Jam.

Be part of projects like We Stand Together. Or do something like our Kiss Fun Facts project, to remember people of things that matter most: love, compassion, collaboration.

Spread beauty, love, and information.

I leave you with a big

Today’s Inspirational Brunch is all about Fashion Collages, or Collage Art in Fashion Editorials.

Collage Art was always my favorite way of expression. I had always a collection of all sorts of magazines and paper bits that filled up my humongous built-in wardrobe.

It’s so cool that today, we can also count on Stock Image Bankings, Opensource Archives, and Editing Softwares, so inspiration meets realization with an unprecedented competence (goodbye glue dirt!). Just kidding, I’m too much old school for that.

At the other hand, Fashion Brands and Designers are always fighting an incessant battle to escape common-place boredom and to present Fashion Editorials and Fashion Illustration that mesmerize. After all, Fashion isn’t about clothes as it’s about attitude and lifestyle.

When we bring Collage Art to Fashion, this fresh-feeling fusion brushes conceptual Fashion Editorials and Campaigns. Voilà!

Even more commonly, artists and collage artists worldwide get inspired by the Fashion mythology, by its aura, to create pieces that talk about human expression and society using different approaches.

Here are some examples of awesome Fashion Collages:
