I am not good on the spot.
If you ask me a question and I’m not expecting it, it’s going to take a long time for you to get the answer you want. I am someone who really needs to think, process, compose, and then slowly speak my thoughts.
This means that when I’m learning something new and I’m expected to perform my new skill or talk about what I just learned, it’s going to be slow going. And I recently got a question from someone in our Popforms email that reminded me of this dilemma:
“I guess I’ve got so much going on, even though I’ve got a lot of great information that I’ve learned about leadership and interaction, I have a hard time remembering it sometimes.
Perhaps you could come up with ways to make it easy to remember when I’m in certain situations to pull out a certain set of skills.”
So what can you do when you learn something new, but you’re afraid you’ll forget it on the spot? Today, a quick and dirty guide to remembering anything.
