Scott Rocklage of 5AM Ventures has just shared his thoughts on what motivates and intellectually stimulates him. Listen to him. This bright leader’s thoughts are summarized below:
Many people seem to think that reading is passive because sometimes requires taking a quiet place to read and listening: Actually, when you read, you are trying to connect with the ideas of authors and not just with their words, so you have to use your critical skills many times; it doesn’t depend on speed but on receiving and giving at the same time.
In Scott’s experiences while reading, he can visualize places, alert all senses, figure the colors of flowers – or even the smells of flowers – and more. Then he is completely immersed and interacting with both the article and author. Learn more about Scott Rocklage: http://www.rennovia.com/team/scott-m-rocklage/
Writing definitely involves more physical action, sometimes, but it also integrates quiet moments; both of these activities complement one another in many ways.
While reading, he loves using highlighters: He can’t read without having a highlighter next to him, or several; it helps me to define passages according to the meaning.
It is a very useful tool. It is also his understanding that strong readers like to use those tools to define sections and make their reading time more productive. Read more: Scott Racklage | Bloomberg and Scott Racklage | Crunchbase
His definition of a good reader is that one that seeks to expand knowledge, prioritize on building an extensive vocabulary, spend more time reading to exercise the learning process, analyze, look for comprehension and connect on what he’s reading. It’s also one who uses dictionaries, pays attention to organized details, evaluates what he learned and draws his own conclusions. Read more: Scott Rocklage | LinkedIn
In Scott’s opinion, the writer makes a good balance of evidences and opinions, combining different points of view to confirm – at the same time – the testimonies from the hoarders themselves. He uses different articles posted by different analysts to prove crucial some points, such as the “emotional point”.
A good article deals with emotions. Some link to genetic issues, and the author combines the disorders to greer all the factors to makes sense. Scott, rock on.
