Think of the thousands of moments a day – in the classroom or the workplace or in a social interaction – when we receive a detail, direction, name, request, note. Imagine a sticky note of this item. Whether it’s a moment later, months later, or even years later – the sticky note is there to hold the information.
Our brain’s own sticky notepad holds information and instructions for 30 seconds or 30 years. It may be a shopping list of four items, a password, a taxonomy of ideas, or an important anniversary date. It may be a simple reminder or a deeply inspirational quote. Whatever it is, our brain’s sticky note function keeps you on top of it.
