I would be convinced to use Spreeder every day if I knew how important it is to be able to read quickly. Because I now know how important speed reading is, I use Spreeder every day. Speed reading abilities are very important because they allow you to learn so much more from books and articles in a shorter time period.
Spreeder is a free online app for speed reading. By learning how to speed read, the time to read long, boring assignments can be cut in half. Instead of reading at 400 words per minute, you could learn to read at 800, or even 1000. That way, you will have much more time to do other things.
Speed reading is very important, and I would recommend it to anyone. Spreeder is a great program, and it’s free! Just copy and paste whatever you want on spreeder and adjust the speed of which you want to read it at.

This is my essay on how to Win Friends and Influence People, a book by Dale Carnegie. All you need to do to get people to do what you want them to do is to make them want to do it, and do make them want to do it, you have to let them find out wants in it for them. Let’s just say that you decide to go fishing, and it happens that you really like chocolate, but the fish, for some odd reason only like worms. You don’t bait your rod with chocolate, but with worms. You don’t think about what you want, but what the fish wants. You bait the hook to suit the fish. You put yourself in another’s shoes. To get people to listen to you, you have to find out what they want, to construct it according to their needs. Others just don’t care what you want, they only care about themselves.
Therefore, to make friends, you have to really care about others. Instead of asking your friend, “Hey, how was your day so far?” But just not caring, try to actually care about what they have to say. Become genuinely interested in their lives. They will love to talk about themselves. Everyone has an interesting life. But you might have never known if you have never asked. Who knows what you could find out. Some things like remembering someone’s name can really be helpful. It has been proven that someone’s name is to them the sweetest and most important sound in any language. Focus on using their name more, not just remembering it. You have to talk in terms of their interests and make them feel as if they are important.
The second point I will talk about is on how to win people to your way of thinking. First of all, you have to show respect to others opinions, not just shouting out, “No!” This can be really helpful if you are working with a group on a project. You have to begin in a friendly way and appeal to their way of thinking. Another good thing to do is to get the other person to do the talking, letting them feel as if it is their idea. Try to see things from their view. Be sympathetic to their ideas, and appeal to their nobler motives. At the end, tell them your ideas, and throw down a challenge.
Last of all, as a leader, you have to change people around you without getting them mad at you. Begin with praise and honest appreciation for what they have done, but call attention to their mistakes indirectly. Talk about your own mistakes before criticizing them. Ask them questions instead of giving them direct orders, and let the other person save face if they make a mistake. Make sure to praise every single improvement, as small as it may be. Give the other person a fine reputation to live up to, and use honest encouragement. Make the other person happy about doing the thing you suggest.
In conclusion, It is important to show respect to other people and appeal to their wants. “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” by Dale Carnegie is a great book, and I recommend it to everyone who would like to learn to have great social skills.
For those who don’t know, an Elitist program is a program which is run by someone who has much more authority than the others. I think, that Washington did not run this program as an Elitist one. Washington believed in, get this, equal rights. The fact that his program was not Elitist was demonstrated in his autobiography, in where he talked about the fact that he did not like it that he had to represent all blacks. He did not like that seat of power. In his speeches, he also talked about how he was just looking for blacks to be treated as equals with whites.
In conclusion, I think that Washington did not set the program for gaining social acceptance for blacks as an Elitist program. Washington believed in equal rights.
The Bible is very important in my life. The Bible talks about how Jesus Christ died for our sins on the cross, was resurrected, and how we should live our lives for God. The Bible has changed every part of my life.
Before I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior, I went to public school. After I accepted Christ, however, my parents and I decided that public school wasn’t fit for me, as a Christian, so I became homeschooled. Ever since I became homeschooled, I have gotten many new hobbies that my teacher introduced to me. I have also learned much more than I did in public school. My everyday routines are also now very different than they used to be. Now if my parents and I hadn’t become Christians through the Bible, I would still be at public school, and wouldn’t have any of the hobbies and friends that I have gained through homeschooling.
The Bible has also changed the way I think and do things. In 1 Corinthians 10:31 it says, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” That means that I have to do everything for the glory of God. I have to focus on what I am doing and get it done the right way. An example of applying this to my life is the work that I do every day. I know that I should devote myself to my work and pay attention to it. It isn’t for my parents, or for other people, but for God.
In conclusion, the Bible has been a big driving force in my life. It has changed me ever since I have accepted Jesus as my Savior, whether it be in my daily life or the way I think and do things. So why don’t you read the Bible? You have everything to gain, and nothing to lose.
You shouldn’t borrow to buy something that depreciates in value. Examples that can depreciate in value are cars, electronics, jewelry, and much more. A reason why buying these is not good is because it produces debt. And debt, when for something that depreciates, is very bad.
One reason you shouldn’t borrow to buy something that depreciates is that what you buy should return an investment to you. Like buying a share in a company, it should return the equivalent of the value you paid for it or more. You expect the company you invested in to generate money for you. The same is not expected of a luxury TV, or of a sports car that you don’t need. Therefore, I think that borrowing to buy something which depreciates in value is not a good idea.
Another reason why you shouldn’t specifically borrow to buy it is that debt produces interest. And if you have a lot of debt over a long period of time, it can cause you a lot of trouble. An example is when you buy an overly expensive car. You don’t have enough money to pay it back, but you leave it be. “It doesn’t matter”. But then, after a while, it is getting impossible to pay the debt off. You rush to sell the car, but you realize that the car is not worth half as much as before.
In conclusion, I think borrowing to buy a depreciating asset is a bad idea. Borrowing to buy that video game you want, or getting that really cool car that you can’t afford are all not good. Debt can grow really fast.
Most people, if not all, find uses for money in their everyday lives. Whether it be to buy lunch, clothes, or even services. But what most of us need is a way to conserve our money. Many people find themselves spending too much money, living paycheck by paycheck. Simply eating homemade food, not impulse buying, and not indulging in unnecessary luxuries are all ways to save money.
Eating homemade food can save money in a lot of ways. The most obvious one is where eating out costs a lot more than it does when you eat homemade food. When you eat out, you spend an average of 20$ for food and labor costs, compared to when you dine at home, you only spend around 4-9 dollars for a great meal. Another way eating homemade food saves money is where you don’t have to pay for medical bills. Now if you live in Canada, you get free medical bills, so you just don’t have to pay the fee of unhealthiness.
Impulse buying is a great way to waste money. When you impulsively buy something just because it looks good and it says that the price won’t ever go down that far again, you probably didn’t make a good deal. First of all, great prices almost always come back. And, you didn’t know the quality of the object you bought. Now I’m not saying that you always have to research whatever you want to buy, but just that it is a good idea.
Last of all, not indulging in unnecessary luxuries can be a great way to save money. Not going to the movie theater’s every other day, or not going to buy that toy you think would be great fun are all ways to save money. Now I am definitely not saying that you shouldn’t go to the movie theater once in a while, or not to indulge yourself in whatever you like to do, just that you should be careful to not go overboard with your unnecessary purchases.
In conclusion, having the skill to conserve the money that you get can be very helpful. Whether it be saving money on hospital bills, something you’d really like to get, or an extra cool looking car, small choices can go a long way to saving your money. But just remember, don’t be a miser!
