3 Tips to Read More Books
by Mark Manson (5 min)
To read more books, focus on remembering the information that is important to you, rather than trying to recall everything. Don't feel obligated to finish every book or read it in order; instead, prioritize quality writing and information. If you come across a section that isn't interesting or you already know about, skip it. The goal is to maximize the processing of interesting information.

Genetics and differences in neural wiring and structure of the brain may also predispose individuals to depression.
