Can you do more than you can? This may seem like a contradiction but you can certainly do more than you think - maybe even more you think is humanly possible.

The current world speed reader champ Anna Jones can read 4700 words per minute with a 67% compensation rate. Think about all the stuff you read in a week. How much time would you save if you could read twice as fast (or faster)?

<p>Trust can save a lot of time. Much of life is spent either checking those we don’t trust, or being checked upon by those who don’t trust us. The term ‘audit society’ has been used to describe our world of constant checking - from our reliance on lawyers, auditors, and inspectors through to heavy bureaucracies and down to adding up our restaurant bills.
