Short vs Long Term Memory
  • Short-term memory allows us to be present in the moment.
  • Long-term memory helps piece together our identity through the recollection of our past experiences, among other things.
  • The farther back we go, the more our recollection gets murky.
  • When you think back to your childhood, you are reconstructing your past while also being affected by who is asking, why, and how.

Our brains quickly forget what we don’t use. Incorporating new learning into your work is one way to retain knowledge.

Another is spaced repetition. It refers to spreading learning out over time - material should be reviewed in gradually increasing intervals of roughly one day, two days, four days, eight days, and so on.

Studies show that by using spaced repetition, we can remember about 80%

of what we learn after 60 days — a significant improvement.
