Quotes & Tips from Unlimited Memory
Importance of Focus
Multitasking is a myth!
Your mind never wanders away; it only moves towards more interesting things.
Exceptional work is always associated with periods of deep concentration. Nothing excellent ever comes from a scattered effort.
The Power of Images
If your brain was unable to make images out of symbols, all learning and reading would be worthless and incredibly boring. Your brain likes pictures and we are really good at remembering them.
Hear a piece of information and three days later you’ll remember 10% of it. Add a picture and you’ll remember 65%.
“Have you ever heard people say, “I know the face, but I can’t remember the name…?” You never hear people say, “The face is on the tip of my tongue”. We remember faces because they form an image in our mind.
Elbert Hubbard said, “Self-discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.
Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.” ~ Charles Mingus
We pay attention half-heartedly on almost everything we do these days. We live in an activity illusion and think that ‘busyness’ is equal to good business. Busyness is sometimes just procrastination in disguise. Busyness may make you feel good and make you think you are more productive but when we look back at the end of the day we realize we haven’t done anything worthwhile. We are training our minds to have continuous partial attention, and our attention is being fragmented.
Negative beliefs and thoughts place a block on your concentration and memory. Unless you decide to take responsibility and change the thoughts that you are constantly feeding yourself, you will not be able to break through your negative conditioning. Every single thought we have is creative: it has the power to build and the power to destroy.
You can remember mountains of information when you are interested in the subject. It almost feels automatic and your concentration is at a peak. Your deficits of attention are mostly interest deficits. Your mind never wanders away; it only moves towards more interesting and outstanding things.
Argue for your limitations and, sure enough, they’re yours.
If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.
You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.
Who would you be without your excuses?
