HOW TO POWER UP YOUR MEMORY FOR RECOVERY
Written By REV. JANET ONAOLAPO.
“Our memories fade, things that we hear forgotten but written words endure” – William Shakespeare.
Many Christians do not go to church anymore with 3Bs – Bibles, Books and Biros. Those who do, do not write out points of the teachings of the day.
Don’t ever go to church without the 3Bs. Context
Journalists have writing pads as their number one companion. Accountants do not joke with their notepads and note taking. They write down every income and expenditure in order not to run into misappropriation of funds. Students take notes in class during lectures because of days of reckoning.
Lawyers go to court with notebooks to write down helpful points arising when cases are going on.
This is the same for Christians. The notebook is very important.
Isabel Allende said, “Write down what should not be forgotten” Someone else also said, “Lead pencil markings endure longer than memory”
Writing down words you hear in church reinforces the ideas in your memory.
Jim Ron said, “Don’t trust your memory. When you listen to something valuable, write it down. When you come across something important, write it down”
Knowledge carefully recorded is knowledge available in time of need.
Note taking helps one to get the most out of teachings. With this, any information received can always be referred to when needed because it will be easily available.
The value of the notebook and note taking cannot be over-emphasized.
Statistics say that:
|20 minutes after ministration||47%|
|1 day after||62%|
|2 days after||69%|
|10 weeks after||75%|
|15 weeks after||95%|
No matter how long, materials, information or messages can be referred to through notes taken. If you forget, your notebook will not. Be smart to commit every valuable information to Notebooks for safe and lasting keeping.
