We are overloaded with the information on the Internet and the media and we can’t process the information.
Why we take all the information in when we can’t process or memorize them?
Our brain tries to sort out the information what is significant and what not. And our brain can’t handle so much data that we get every day.
Our brain connects easily only with information that is important to our survival.
If our brain can associate the info with experience it is much easier to memorize.
For instance, you learn about technique and everywhere you look to apply that information…
If you find an object and can understand what you have learned, you will easily memorize it. After some time you will become an expert.
So I have done it with technique, psychology, philosophy, and religion.
And then I had/have my challenges with the Adobe Photoshop. I learned some techniques of the Adobe Photoshop, applied the knowledge and after 3 months not applying my knowledge I forgot how to use Photoshop. Then I learned again the technique and forgot it again and again.
Why? Photoshop is against every logic in my mind and so I can’t connect the techniques of Photoshop with my other knowledge.
And this is the reason why we can’t memorize if we can’t connect the new knowledge with our learned knowledge. Because our mind demands that we need to construct in our brain a new neuropathy when we learn something entirely new.
Imagine if you go through the Forest without using any trek. If you repeat again to go the same path, after some time there will be a trek. And if you stop using this path the trek will disappear and so our knowledge.
Every knowledge we learn, we need to apply and to repeat.
When we read a book and can’t remember what we have read, we should make notes and try to apply it… If we can connect this information for something useful in our life we easily can memorize it.
Information that we don’t need skip.
Why? Overloading our brain leads to dysfunction.
Learn to relax and find time to use more the right side of your brain. The right side of our brain is for feelings, intuition, sex, art, fun… And then learning is much easier. Because both sides of our mind/brain should be used equally.
