Digital Amnesia: The act of forgetting something important because you trust a connected device!
Since we’ve been able to place more memory power in the palm of our hand than was used to land a man on the moon, we’ve banished our own memory to the back burner. The more we rely on technology to retrieve information, the more we erode the process to recall that information ‘naturally’ and we now have Digital Amnesia.
So is this a problem? Well, here’s just one scenario. You have a pre-arranged appointment, you have reviewed all the pertinent information about that client/customer, you’re able to ask after their spouse/partner, kids, even their favourite sports team. You feel you have a great relationship.
A month later you bump into them unexpectedly, not only have you ‘forgotten’ their spouse/partners, kids, names…you can’t even recall THEIR name. How’s that relationship now? How helpful is that device now?
In Bob’s latest highly interactive, empowering, and funny, keynote presentation, he shows you how to keep your memory in shape, how to steal your brain back from technology…and how you’ll never need to say “Sorry, I forgot your name” again.
This same method, which is the foundation of all memory systems dating back thousands of years, can also be adapted to recall any sequential information such as presentations, lists, safety procedures and more.
