Why This System Works:

“Programming” Your Eyes & Brain

I’ve created this process myself – but I’ve read and studied many speed-reading, learning, and memory optimization strategies. I modeled and integrated them into my own process that I’ve been using for several years, with massive success.

In fact, I regularly read two to five books a week!

  • I want to credit PhotoReading from Learning Strategies – Paul

Scheele and Pete Bissonette for making what I think is one of the

better systems for whole brain learning. One portion of this process

is modeled after what they teach…

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs Why This System Works: “Programming” Your Eyes & Brain I’ve
  • I also want to acknowledge my mastermind group for pushing me

to write this, and turn it into a book…because I’ve been THINKING

about doing it for a year, and haven’t gotten around to it until now!

One more request: Please “suspend your disbelief”, and your judgment until we get to the end of this book--because one of three

parts will seem a little “woo-woo” at first…but it’ll make complete

sense later on.

The Disappearing Letters Trick

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs Preparation and Opening Credits: The Disappearing Letters Trick This part

This part is very “whole brain”, but it really works. One trick that you should do BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE is, clear you mind and prepare yourself for rapid learning.

We’re all faced with distractions: iPhones, Emails, Facebook, IM,

the TV, etc. You need to have a un-cluttered mind, or else this WILL

NOT WORK to its’ full potential.

Ready?

Here’s an easy exercise that you can do right now to clear your mind

of all distractions almost effortlessly ...

First, take 3 deep breaths.

8

© Mike Koenigs, All Rights Reserved

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

Breathe in very slowly, then exhale.

Next, imagine a blank movie screen, with the words B L A N K

written on it.

Can you see this in your “mind’s eye”?

OK

...

Now

...

Close your eyes. Just trust me on this.

Imagine with me a blank movie screen, with a black border and an

off-white hue. The words BLANK are on the screen.

See it? Great! Now, this part might be a little hard to believe at first,

but bear with me. I promise this is totally worth it.

Imagine each letter of the word BLANK disappearing, each letter at

a time.

This process should take about 30 seconds to 1 minute to do. Allow

your mind to naturally get rid of the letters until all that you can see

is a white screen.

Got it? Good. Now take three more deep breaths. This is so key. Just do it. Trust me.

So, no more letters, just one big blank movie screen. Your mind is

now totally empty and free. Take three more deep breaths, and we can move on to the next step.

Now that your mind is a blank canvas, and you have taken nine deep, relaxing breaths, you are ready to start your Mindset exercise.

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

Step One:

Your Mindset

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs Step One: Your Mindset The main thing you need to

The main thing you need to focus on after you get your breathing and mind under control is this:

Ask yourself:

Q: Why are you reading this book?

Q: What are the main concepts and changes you want to experience after reading it?

Quick Tip: The next part you need to get your heart and mind around is:

10

© Mike Koenigs, All Rights Reserved

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

Q: Who in your life could most benefit from the information in the

book? One of your friends? Someone in your family?

Look back at the How We Retain Information example above. See the part where it says that to retain 90% of what you read, you need to teach the material to someone else?

Listen, it’s 100% true.

You need to be able to teach the content of the book to someone else. We are flipping the usual “book reading” game on it’s ear, which is how you are able to get so much done so quickly!

Not only do you start to listen to your heart, but you put yourself into a “teaching” mode. This way you are able to retain 90% of what you’ll read almost automatically!

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

Ask yourself these 3 questions ...

Q: What exactly do I want to teach in this book if I knew and understood everything that was in it?

Q: Which parts do I want to transfer to someone else to improve their life?

Q: If I had to ask the author a series of questions about the strategies that I need to teach to my friends, what will they be?

So, to recap, go back and do the Movie Screen exercise, where you clear you head.

Then position your mind as a Teacher of ultra-valuable material- -Remember that you are reading the book so you can pass the information along to friends--as an instructor or teacher. Your whole

goal and mindset is to be committed to being IN SERVICE to others-

not to yourself. You want to give them this information as a “gift” as a teacher, guide and mentor.

The House Party

Another killer method for retaining knowledge is to read it with the

mindset that you will interview the author after you finish reading

the book.

Do you believe this will ramp up your ability to harness more

information, and share it with other people that matter to you and help them? You bet it will!

In essence, you are putting a big ball of “good” pressure on your

subconscious which says, “I have to read this book and squeeze out

ALL the juice I can so I can teach!”

This COMMITS you and gives you a massive WHY.

See, the trick to retaining 90% of what you read will only be

realized if you read it with the goal of passing the information on to others. Your retention skyrockets when you TEACH and PRACTICE what you learn.

Even if you never actually teach anyone this content, putting yourself

in this mindset prepares you for it anyway. Technically, your brain

can’t tell the difference between real and imagined experiences - so this little “trick” forces you to learn and retain differently because

your identity gets involved.

You don’t want to look like a fool in front of your peers, do you?

With that in mind, I want you to read the book with the goal that you will interview the writer for 20 minutes. This trains your brain to come up with some great questions that you either want answered or explained in greater detail. Again, imagine the people you want to share the information in the book with. Connect with them emotionally. Feel their pain.

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

When you empathize with someone and present with compassion and understanding, it makes you more real, more authentic and emotionally involved.

Think about a teacher, mentor or coach you may have had in the

past who had a profound influence and effect on you. Were they

empathic, compassionate, emotionally involved with you and their content?

I suspect so.

Armed with this new mindset, you’re going to be remembering the main ideas and principles behind ANY book that you read, almost

without effort.

So, read the book as if you will interview the author afterwards. Plus, as an added incentive to get the information rapidly transferred

in your head the first time, picture yourself actually presenting the

content from the book in 2 hours or less.

Twenty people who desperately NEED the information will be

knocking at your door. You are subconsciously forcing yourself to retain the information--why? Because you have to or those 20 people

will leave your office or home feeling even more miserable than before! You’ll be letting them down! They’re looking up to YOU to

help them!

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

Step Two:

Preparation

Open up the book you’re going to read. If you don’t have a copy of the book yet, then head on over to Amazon and get into the content of the book to see if you’ll like it.

On most of the books on Amazon. com, you’ll see the ability to open up the book and see the Front and Back covers, the Table of Contents, the Index and so on.

Take a second to go through your

book and get your mind ready so that when you do get the book, you’re prepared. You’ll see the preview of one of my favorite writer’s books, author Tim Ferris’

The 4 Hour Workweek.

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs Step Two: Preparation Open up the book you’re going to

I’m able to get a huge jump even if I cannot get the book right away.

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

The “Promise” Method Revealed

There’s no excuse on why you can’t do this from home, from a smart-phone or iPad, where-ever you happen to be.

Pick up the book and get a glimpse of the front cover. What is this book’s main message? What is the author’s PROMISE to you when

you read the book? Next, flip to the back cover, and glance over the

bullets and summary, as well as any testimonials that famous (or regular) readers have left.

Then, move to the first flap on the left. Read the beginning and ending flaps on both covers of the book. Then skim through the Table

of Contents and the Index. This is what I call The Promise Method. With the goal of teaching this info to that group that is coming to your house, you are now scanning the info in the book for all the Promises the book says it will reveal.

So, start soaking in the main methods and terms in the Table of

Contents, the Index in the back, the flaps, and the front and

back covers.

Then, in the first glance after you’ve done that, immediately write

down in the front of the book any questions, key concepts or distinctions youth want to ask the author about during your 20

minute interview. Listen, it doesn’t matter how silly or weird, just

write down the questions that come to you.

These INTENTIONS program your mind and eyes so when you scan and read the book in a later step, the answers to your questions will seem to magically pop out of the pages and answer themselves.

I mark up and write in my books so I never lose the notes. If you

16

© Mike Koenigs, All Rights Reserved

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

don’t like the idea of this, books are cheap - order a “bookshelf”

copy! But feel free to use notebook paper and paper clip your notes

inside the book.

For example, if the author says, “Eat protein 30 minutes after you

wake up in the morning.” Say that’s in the Table of Contents. Write

down, “Why is eating protein 30 minutes after waking a great idea?

What about waiting 1 hour? Does that hurt your body?”

That might be a question that comes up in your head during this exercise. Cool, huh?

Now, on to one of the ULTRA-EFFECTIVE tricks I use to get the information into my head very quickly. This tip gives me perhaps DOUBLE the normal retention rate.

I want you to get your breathing right, which is crucial for the Full Mind Reading we are going to do.

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs don’t like the idea of this, books are cheap -

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

You need to breathe in and out, remembering that your goal is to be a SERVANT for the group that is coming over in 2 hours. Now, imagine yourself being able to possibly “drink” the information quickly into your mind, and do a cool Vulcan Mind Meld with the author. Is that weird? Yes. Does it work? It does for me.

(if you aren’t familiar with the “Vulcan Mind Meld”, it’s a Star Trek reference. The character, Spock - who is a Vulcan can transfer any experience, emotion or knowledge to or from anyone by pressing his hands on their temples and face. Something similar happened in the movie “The Matrix” when Neo got information downloaded into his head instantly so he could operate any kind of assault weapon and learn every type of martial art.)

Picture yourself being able to quickly and easily “drink” in the information inside the author’s mind while you breathe in and out, OK?

Now, flip through the pages in the book, about 2 seconds for each

page. Glance at objects, pictures, headlines, and bullets.

Notice the information that is bolded, or highlighted.

DO NOT THINK about what you are seeing though-just take it in at

this point. That is all we want to do. Every two or three seconds, just

calmly flip the pages over, soaking in the information.

Make sure to “see” each side of the page (left and right), as a whole picture, not just pieces here and there.

  • I make a point of chanting “breathe in, breathe out, serve the ones

  • I care about most” to myself while I do this step to keep my brain

from getting bored or distracted. Find something that inspires you to

complete this step.

You’re programming your subconscious mind.

Step Three:

The Mind Follows

The next thing I do after I go through each page, while breathing naturally and connecting with the content, is I turn on the physical part of my brain.

Huh? Well, let me explain.

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs Step Three: The Mind Follows The next thing I do

Tony Robbins says that whatever your body does, your mind will follow. Tony is all about physiology. Movement.

We are physical beings - and connecting intent, emotion and motion hyper accelerates the education and retention process.

With that in mind, very, very rapidly, go through the book again, and highlight with a red or black pen and a pink or green (or whatever) color highlighter, the main ideas that stand out.

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

As you highlight the key ideas, I write down 3 things:

• More Questions I want to ask the author (follow up from step one where you wrote these down in the front of the book)

• Answers to those questions you believe to be true. (Try to get these from the book and your quick scans. Then write down the answers in the beginning blank pages of the book.)

• Page numbers of where I found the information. It’s during

this time that you’ll find you’ll find the answers to the

questions you have will seem to pop out of nowhere.

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs As you highlight the key ideas, I write down 3

This step is where I learn the most and the fastest - and after you’ve done this with three books you’ll learn that you’ll be able ton decrease the time it takes to consume books by 20%-50%.

20

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

Step Four:

Timing Is Everything

Handy Trick: Another cool tip is to start your writing process with an egg timer or something that clicks. This will help you to keep that teaching mindset and the fact that you have an obligation to others- and WHY you are reading this.

When I first began these exercises, I got connected by timing myself with an egg timer for 20-30 minutes.

I got through a 200 page book, with the egg timer, writing key

thoughts, putting down the key questions, and possible answers to the questions I had when I first started writing.

Then, like I said above, I write down the page numbers for the

questions I have and the answers that I find. Now, what you need to

do is Review the ORIGINAL questions you asked at the beginning of the book and respond to them.

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs Step Four: Timing Is Everything Handy Trick: Another cool tip

I write down page numbers because it’s important to be able to have a chest sheet if someone asks

you something specific or you are

actually interviewing the author and need to make a point.

Specificity is proof.

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

Step Five:

Summarize & Act

Next, after you read through the book two times, the second time being the physical act of highlighting key concepts and distinctions, writing down questions, possible answers, and page numbers, then you will write (preferably on paper), a summary of what you feel the book is about.

A few paragraphs, try three or four, will be fine for now.

Second, imagine yourself preparing to interview the author in front of a live audience and TV camera in an hour. This is the part where your twenty-minute interview will come into play.

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs Step Five: Summarize & Act Next, after you read through

This is crucial to you being able to confidently understand

what the book is about. Don’t worry about getting flustered or overwhelmed the first time-just go with the questions and ideas

you have at this moment.

Pick two close friends, family members, etc, who could really use the

22

© Mike Koenigs, All Rights Reserved

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs

information in the book. Allow the questions and interview to center on what those two people need to hear.

Remember, you’ll be the most authentic and real when you are preparing and presenting for a SPECIFIC audience, not a

general one.

Final

Thoughts ...

Here are the questions you should try to answer after reading the book:

• What are the three top concepts the viewer will get out of this interview or review? What are the three top concepts you want your 2 friends to get out of the book?

• Who is this book written for? Who can or will get the most out of putting the information into practice in their lives?

• What is the MOST important fact your chosen audience needs to know that you learned in the book?

• What 2-3 MYTHS about the subject matter has the author

proven are not true about the topic?

See how using this easy 5 step blueprint, and YOUR questions, practically guarantees that you’ll not only be able to do a great interview with the real author, but that you can pass on this knowledge with up to 90% retention rate to all your friends?

  • 2. Answers to those questions that you think are right. Don’t rack your brain, just write down the first thing that comes into your head. (Try to get these from the book and your quick scans. Then write down the answers in the beginning blank pages of the book. Jot down initial answers below.

  • 3. Also, be sure to write down all the page numbers of where you found your answers to the information, so you can quickly go back and not get lost, which wastes precious time.

Timing Is Everything

Speed Reading Secrets with Mike Koenigs Timing Is Everything • Begin by getting yourself an old-school egg

• Begin by getting yourself an old-school egg timer from

Amazon or your local Target or Walmart. I love this one because it’s retro and it gets the job done. You should use something with an audible click or tone so you feel pressured to get the information into your head in time for your interview and the crowd coming over.

• Remember, this part is very important. So, please do not skip it. Giving yourself 2 hours to get through your book and get the questions and main ideas down will get you ready for your interview with the author. Plus, you’ll be positioned to help the 20 people who are coming over to your house.

• Tick tock. This exercise, while bland, has HUGE potential and is very powerful for digesting the solutions of any book so they stick to your brain like glue.

• Go through the book with the egg timer, and review your original questions at the beginning of the book. Next, write down your answers to them for the second time. Are they right?
