In the morning and at night are the two times when the mind is at it's most creative points of the day.
30 mins. to an hour before I go to bed, I shut off everything, crack open a book with a notepad in hand, and read.
I normally stop and go to bed once I finish a chapter or a big idea, or when I'm simply not able to focus anymore.
There are some ideas that will resonate with you at these times of the day (morning and night) even if you are an afternoon person.
I can speed read pretty well (60-80 pages/hour), but I find that a lot of valuable nuggest of information is lost, as speed reading allows you to only see the big picture.
(I now only do it for schoolwork )
These are perfect for cutting through the crappy redundancy present in most books SUCCESS Subscription
If you need some tips with speed reading feel free to PM me.
Hope that helps,
