How to remember

The Talmud teaches us – as has been confirmed by modern studies – we only can remember (in our RAM) two things at a time.

So what to do?

Often we need to remember many things.

Well many many many little things like Microsoft Outlook have been designed that help us remember.

Perhaps I shouldn’t be one to be giving lessons on memory.

What was I saying?

Oh, yah, just remembered:_

Well here is a simple trick that works:

Instead of trying to figure out what to do every day, start at the beginning of the week.

Fill in your week ahead, schedule a time when you want to do the things you want to do.

It’s that simple.

The reason this system is good, is as Stephen Covey writes, we have a tendency to focus on what is urgent as opposed to what is important.

So by thinking once a week what is important and scheduling it in, you will find you are not reacting to crises rather you are proactively creating.
