I’ve a book for children in Japanese. It contains chapters each about some biographical figure. One is on Vincent Van Gogh. So I’m reading it.
If I do so slowly, painstakingly, it’s not much use. I understand nothing, because my brain doesn’t see the patterns at that speed.
However, if I skip along quickly, then I make more sense of it. I obtain 20, 40 or 60 percent of the information depending on my level.
Since I move quickly, I cover more ground. The exercise is more useful and productive. You just have to let go and trust the net.
