When I learned to fly little airplanes, it didn’t take long overwhelmed struck. The volume of information I needed to remember was crazy.
That’s when my instructor said,
“You don’t need to remember everything. Just know where to get the information when you need it.”
Here’s how it works:
1) During study time learn and understand everything.
2) In real-life, memorize the first few steps needed to start. File everything else in a place that you can quickly access the information.
3) When it is time to use your knowledge, begin with your memory items while you retrieve your notes. Continue until completed.
Too much information creates paralysis. Commit the basics to memory and refer to your notes for everything else. No fuss, no muss.
