Have you ever found yourself caught in a situation wherein you know that you know one thing but can’t remember what that “one thing” is? At first, it may sound funny and you’ll just laugh at yourself, but in the long run, it can get frustrating too. Some people attribute forgetfulness to certain things like a medical condition, or age, or whatnot.
This problem may have a bit of an impact especially if you want to be able to communicate yourself.
While it’s true that there are factors that affect your ability to remember everything you learn, the good news is, there are certain ways how you can help yourself not to forget them. It may take a bit of practice and “getting used to”, but it is guaranteed to be very effective.
You’ll be surprised to know how it doesn’t just stop from “knowing”. Knowing is just the first step. Knowing something doesn’t guarantee that you will remember it. There are certain techniques designed to help you retain that knowledge.
The first is “Learn to Teach Someone”, this means learning with the intention of teaching. When you know that you have to pass on a piece of certain knowledge, there’s that drive to make sure you will not miss a thing. You will want to know more about it, master it, and of course, remember it. When you master it and you teach it, you will be very natural and become unconsciously poised in delivering it. It’s muscle memory, it becomes a part of you.
The second is “Space and Recall”. Give yourself a bit of space, then recall the learning. Do it repeatedly until recalling becomes effortless. They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. Do not stop giving yourself space then recalling it until the knowledge is reinforced and becomes a pattern, and eventually your style.
Lastly, “Digest and Integrate”. From knowing to recalling, to making it a habit. Retention will be easier if you understand and practice. Make it a part of you. As you learn something new, come up with your structure of understanding, By doing so, you can get rid of the energy parasite and emotional sinkhole and just focus on retaining the knowledge.
By then, retention of learning will be guaranteed. It will become natural when you talk about it, you will exude that aura that you know and you master what you are talking about.
It starts from the will to learn, then the will to retain that learning. Use that will as a drive to work on remembering it. Get rid of blocks, help yourself by creating your own framework of understanding, tell people about it, and voila! You will definitely not forget it.
