Watch A 3 Hour Movie In 2 Hours + You Get More Time


featuredon

This trick I learned is a dire necessity for myself (who has self-diagnosed ADD).

Mandy has the patience of a Monk and watches more TV in the same amount of time. Together we can finish an entire Game of Thrones in one 40 minute sitting. That extra 20 minutes? Homework, Exercise, Family Time, or… More Game of Thrones 🙂

More jokes, more laughs, more drama, more suspense – same time.

Efficiency:

Like an assembly line, if we increase the speed of the line, we will see more completed.

Same jokes, same plot, and at 10% faster – you wont notice a difference.

The Math:

Speed up your media player by using a playback of 1.1x speed or higher.

60 minute TV show

Speed up 1.1x

60 minutes/1.1 = ~54 Minutes.

6 Minutes saved, every time you watch.

1.3x speed is my standard, but I’ve watched really long movies at 1.5x speed. Didn’t have to stop to hit the bathroom. Watched the whole way through -no intermission. Wouldn’t that be nice?

I suggest using 1.1x speed for a while, taste how great 6 minutes a day – at no loss to you is. Wouldn’t it be great to sleep in another 6 minutes? Or have extra time to get ready in the morning?
