In this life area, we seek to refine our ability to acquire information, develop our understanding and to enrich our minds with knowledge that can serve us in life. The focus of the intellect is knowledge. Examples of things that fall under this life area: accelerated learning, study skills, mind-mapping, speed-reading, memory, reasoning and any reading done to acquire information that’s not directly related to making money (which is Professional) and is not done for pleasure (which is Recreational).
