People often complain that they have a bad memory when they frequently lose things throughout the day.
Actually (and I have some psychology research backing this up), your memory is probably fine, you just don’t pay attention in the first place.
The 21st century is notorious for people filling down time as mindlessly as possible – aimlessly using cell phones, games, or pursuing other forms of entertainment to fill every minute.
Virtually no one gives their full attention to anything. We consider “multitasking” as a valuable skill, even though research has shown that it decreases your productivity.
This is all the long way of me saying this: this “constantly busy, never paying attention” habit is dramatically ruining our quality of life, oh, and making your forget stuff. A lot of stuff.
I‘m going to show you (video length: 3:35):
- The one trick to stop forgetting where you put things… for good (without “improving” your memory)
- The interesting psychology experiment that explains why we often don’t remember obvious things
- Why you probably don’t actually have a bad memory
Take it Away Folks…
So, have you been saying you have a “bad memory” when in reality, you just rush yourself from place to place and don’t pay attention?
What have you tried to improve your memory or improve your awareness?
Are you guilty of multitasking, thinking that you’re actually “getting more done” ?
What have you tried in order to stop losing your car keys?
