The lovely man came to mow the lawns today. Yes! I know, I’ve got actual lawn. He’s been here before and he replaced the front lounge blinds, but I’d struggled to remember his name.
I stuck my head, OK all of me clad still in my PJ’s and bed socks to offer him a coffee.
I thought I’d remembered his name. So, I said;
‘Is it Erin or Arron?
To which he replied “Jack”
I was never going to win, was I?
He smiled. So, all is forgiven.
But funnily enough I remember he came out to Australia from Holland and now I’ll remind myself he’s a Jack of all trades and I’ll remember his name in the future.
So, I’m using name association to recall his name and it just goes to show the brain is like a filing cabinet. It’s all in there, you just need methods of filing them away.
I think that’s why I managed so well in the Case Management role I worked in. There were plenty of systems and everything has a place an uncluttered space, means an uncluttered mind.
Look around you right now.
What do you see?
If you see clutter?
