🤔 Today’s tip: To be more productive, ask yourself if you’re a reader or a listener.

Figuring out how you can unlock a new path to productivity and success might starts when you understand the answer to this question: What’s your preferred mode of gathering and processing information?

In other words, would you rather read a book, and slowly absorb nuances about a subject? Or would you rather listen to someone speak, taking cues from their voice and facial expressions? As Niklas Göke writes in Forge: “Whichever of those two categories we fall into, taking advantage of our fundamental strength is critical to our success.”

Read the story to find out which kind of learner you are — and to get tactical productivity advice for making the most of either approach.
