If you break down your workday (and really be honest about it) – you’ll probably find that only 1-3 hours are actually *really* productive hours.

Sure, you may be getting some seemingly important “insider” information at the water cooler, more during a long luncheon. And, you may feel like the networking on Facebook is helping you towards your own, and/or company goals. But, are you really that productive?

It’s about information and people, isn’t it? All this information gathering and research happens face-to-face, as well as on the web, for example.

One of the ways you can get more information quicker (it works!) is to read faster. In general, moving faster will help you.

Here are some of the features (from the website):
