"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Dilip Mukerjea, writing in his book, 'Building BrainPower: Turning Grey Matter into Gold', offers the following Action Points for Your Reading:

1) Develop your reading program. Improve the general quality, breadth and depth of your reading. Strive to read at least a book a week.

2) Use established techniques (such as 'visual guide') to attain acceleration and smoothness in your reading.

3) Build your vocabulary, with at least 3 new words per day. Use these words actively, in speech as well as in writing.

4) Seek out key words within text. Equate this information with mental Mind Mapping (no paper and no pens) and other memory techniques, so as to monitor your progress in Mental Literacy.

5) Study about, and exercise, your eyes e.g. Bates Method, Yoga techniques, and so on.

6) Enhance your reading environment in line with the Mental Matrix. Consider reading in full-spectrum lighting so as to eliminate eye fatigue.

7) Learn to 'deep read' material that needs to be absorbed at a more philosophical level.

8) Monitor your reading speeds on a regular basis.

9) Teach other people to acquire these skills and to apply this process to their studies and work assignments.

10) Create and run 'High Eye Cue' Society! Remember, Readers Make Leaders!
