I fooled myself for 8 years and you still do

The Lie

How many times do you feel more productive by watching/listening to content at 2x speed?

Why it is not productive?

Content is created to be viewed at 1x. At 2x speed, you complete the content in half the time but the learnings vanish with time.

What if….?

What if the content is too slow or too detailed for you? Why not ‘2x’ it?

What to do?

Try different mediums and creators of content. Text, Audio, Video, or Image.

What if you have no option (Highly Unlikely)?

Then do your brain a favor and watch it at 1x or max 1.5x.

Conclusion

We are surrounded by content and we must develop the ability to reject content that is not for us. This will save time and mental energy.
