I want my bed! I want my bed!
As many of you know, you can be physically present in a class, lecture, business presentation or other situation but not actually be there.
How often do you look at the time and seconds later cannot remember the time?
This is a situation that is actually getting worse. We do not have to remember telephone numbers, important dates like birthdays, addresses, passwords etc because it is now done for us and because our brain acts like a muscle our capacity to remember these things is reduced through lack of use.
The second problem is that our attention span is much shorter than it used to be.
Our brains are used to quick changing scenes in films and on TV and also browsing the internet, skipping from one thing to another. No wonder we find ourselves drifting off somewhere else when we are listening to a long talk or lecture that lasts over and hour.
We are used to reading short texts and one-line comments…
The good news is that you can rebuild that muscle and get your memory back and we will tell you how but first you need to work on motivating yourself to learn and we will help you there too…read on…!
Were you really reading this or drifting off somewhere else?
Check your concentration now – without looking below. What were the main points covered by this Bite-sized article?
Many of you will find that you cannot name the important points raised in the very short piece above. Shocking isn’t it!
Now start to practice asking yourself what you have just read after each page you read and start exercising your brain again.
Our brain acts like a muscle our capacity to remember these things is reduced through lack of use.
Our attention span is much shorter than it used to be.
You can rebuild your learning muscle and get your memory back.
