Haha as the title suggests I seem to have an issue with memory and processing information. It is always getting me in trubble because my brain seems to select information it wants to hear in a conversation and then completely disregard other parts with out me even knowing. When I was younger I always used to ask questions or bring up a converation that had just been talked about a second ago.
I only really noticed this when I was 15 and joined a local Rowing club where I meet my best friend Craig and most of my friend group. They ended up nicknaming me “built”. As in thinks as fast as a built!! the sarcastic gits!! And then it stuck for over 15 years!!
When it comes to my work and the roles I have to partisipate in briefings with a number of difrent people. I often sit there really intrested and trying to take in all the information. I feel that I have understood all of it and then feel that I have a good question to ask which I do, and then everyone turns to me and say “were you not even listling!!!” Then I am thinking “yeah” I was and how did I miss that part. So now at the end I never want to ask questions just incase it has already been mentioned. However the other day I did this and someone elce asked a question that I was thinking and it had not already been mentioned!!!!
How am I going to get around this one. Obvously progresion at work is all about bettering your self. But this memory thing seems to be a real issue although does make me giggle because I just don’t understand why it happens!!!
So as per my last blog, I really want to start writing my own book. Its actually quite hard in the sence of where to start. My idea is based on a young lad growing up in school suffering with dyslexia who experiences some real lows but realises that dyslexia can also give you some good highs! We shall see how it goes. Any book writes out there that can offer any advice I would be very greatfull.
Anyway just a quick one today
