i've been finding the prospect of the future daunting because it's so hard to learn and remember these days...
i'm giving a free online education course a try called Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects \https://www.coursera.org/course/learning
course head injured tough subjects are a bit different... BUT a few minutes into lesson one and i'm getting taught about the brain and how memory works.
the picture above talks about different ways of thinking and lots of flags were being put up when she was talking about focused thinking and how difficult it is to get access to something that you might know.
reminds me of all those times that i'll be doing things/saying things and be so sure of what i'm doing but it is totally and completely wrong until someone is talking and it makes you remember the right way and wonder how you could have thought any other way was true... the focus you have on something is so tight and unchanging! i'm tired and bored of that!
we're all on our computers and on forums. i'll post any useful things about memory and learning if you like
