Compressing the Learning Curve

Imagine how much you could learn if…
You could watch all the videos that on Youtube about growing your business. But the problem is, these videos from experts are atleast an hour long because they have a lot of information.
I want to share with a hack that I recently discovered that allows me to absorb information from videos at a much faster rate.
Here’s what this is all about…
A recent article from Cisco predicts that 80% of the world’s internet traffic will be video within the next few years…before 2020.
With new video coming online all the time…especially high quality stuff, I wanted to share a hack with you today that we use internally that allows us to consume that video content at a much faster rate.
You can actually apply it to watching the training videos online that we have inside the members area of my online business or any recorded videos on the web.
It’s a Chrome browser extension called Video Speed Controller.
And best of all…
Let’s say I wanted to watch our good buddy Perry Belcher video here titled How to Win an Election – Political Consultant Perry Belcher. With any content on YouTube, you can see this is 17 minutes.
With the busy schedules in our lives and all the demands for our time, 17 minutes is a pretty big commitment.
How to learn faster
If you look at the top left, it’ll indicate that this video is going to be playing at 1X speed…which is normal speed. You can simple click on the sign that says 1X and it’ll give you options to increase or decrease the speed of the video.
You can also use your keyboard and hit “D” to increase the speed and “S” to reduce the speed.
Normally, I like watching videos now at 1.9 to 1.8. This allows me to consume 17 minutes of information quickly, which would have been a pretty big commitment in the past.
If you’re not using this right now with anything that you’re watching on YouTube or any other training video like the ones we’ve got inside my online business members area, it can seem like a daunting task to get through all the content.
Now that you can do it a lot faster!
You really don’t lose anything and you end up having the satisfaction of completing the training a lot sooner.
Hope that was helpful got plenty more of these that I’ll be sharing with you so, stay tuned.
