SQ3R is a useful technique to help you to become a more active reader, increasing your comprehension of a text and also your reading speed.
Read: Work through the text methodically from beginning to end without making notes, concentrate on understanding what the author is saying.
Recite: Pause in your reading to summarize your own understanding of the text and take notes of what the author’s main points are.
Review: Compare what you have recalled with the text itself. Look for any important points that you may have missed and check that you now have the answers to the queries which you defined at the question stage.
See something. Say nothing.

Confused “Why do I have two hands?”
Getting really worked up about finding the perfect metaphor for the spread of good ideas. Google confirmed my suspicions that most metaphors are either negative (virus, wildfire) or too new&obscure to serve as accessible imagery (memes).
Nevertheless, I’ve stumbled on a few nice opinions and ideas online. For posterity, here’s the haul:
What’s to be done? Need to find a metaphor dictionary… there must be some way to throw money at this problem! Leads so far:
Paging anybody on reception: do you know where I can find a more extensive resource for metaphors?
