With a new academic session upon us, an essential aspect of reading is GOAL-SETTING.
It is important to set your personal reading goals as it goes a long way in helping you take action in building excellent reading skills and making you more mindful of the improvement/progress you make.
Here are a few useful tips to help you set and achieve your reading
goals this season:
Join a reading group
Being around other people who are passionate about reading is inspiring and can motivate you in achieving your reading goals.
Create a reading schedule and stick to it
Set aside specific times every day to read. Put away distractions that may hinder your reading time.
Once you start reading, it’s a good idea to keep organized notes about what you have read.
This would be helpful when you need to revisit some information at a later date.
Choose a reading time
Make reading part of your daily routine. Set aside a specific period each day for reading.
Reading for at least 30-40 minutes a day is a great start and would help you develop a concrete reading habit that supports your reading goals.
