Sometimes when we are absorbed by mental pursuits-especially reading a good book or studying a subject we are passionate about-it’s important not to lose track of time. You may even want to time yourself so that you can stop and tend to the other responsibilities you need to fulfill. If you establish time constraints, you may find yourself better able to focus and absorb what you take in because your mind won\’t have the luxury of time to wander aimlessly. Time for absorbing information is just as important as time spent engaging in other activities.
Giving ourselves a set amount of time to focus on mental pursuits allows us to be as productive as possible. It gives us permission to be free from distractions because we know that we will be able to tend to other responsibilities when that scheduled time has ended. This affords us the freedom to concentrate. With our focused attention, we can then absorb and process new information with ease. Our abilities to comprehend and retain information inevitably become enhanced.
