Have you ever been watching your favorite TV show that is no longer airing (If you’re not thinking of ‘the Office’ right now I’m not sure we can be friends) for the third or fourth time through and noticed something completely new that you’ve never seen before? Have you ever done that with a book?
My morning walks with the pup have me cycling through podcasts faster than normal so I’m re-listening to a book I had listened to a few years ago. I thought I remembered everything from this book (10 hours of audio) but my mind is being blown with new insights I completely forgot, or never heard to begin with.
Isn’t it the same with all aspects of life? You went to a marriage seminar ten years ago, a business conference five years ago, and I’m sure your retention of all of that information is 100%, or at least 20%. Maybe its time to sign up for a new seminar, or to pick up that book that changed your life a few years back.
