I realize how much my memory is diminishing its ability to recall data – primarily stuff I have committed to do with dates attached that I have completely forgotten until #1 – I have disappointed someone by forgetting or #2 – I am reminded right when I am about to miss something which puts me completely off kilter or #3 – I hear later that so-and-so was hurt when I didn’t or did something I had forgotten about entirely.
It happened again this week.
I felt so terrible and I immediately jumped to fix it as best as I could, but I know the damage may have been unfixable. I still don’t know exactly.
I was in Barnes and Noble this weekend and I saw a book there about Memory. It is a sort of how to improve your memory using the same skills as geniuses across the ages have done it. I want to buy it, preferably on Amazon for the discount, but I can’t remember the title or the author.
See what I mean?
I decided I am going to start using a calendar ap on my phone that will remind me of things. I can see no other way to fix this, at least until I go back to Barnes and Noble and text myself the name of the author and the title of that… oh, yes. Of that book about genius and memory.
