But maybe you don’t know its power yet.
Our long term memory is practically infinite, and we almost never lose it. This is why humans can keep learning and compounding their knowledge. This is why there are so many people with jaw-dropping productivity. This is why there is such a huge range in the productivity of humans.
Your brain can handle a lot of information. Much more than you think it can.
Think about people who know multiple languages. Some of them know 7 or 8 or 10 or 20.
The more words you know, the more thoughts you can think.
There are people who can navigate complex social situations, people who have multiple PhDs. People who start multiple businesses. People who write hundreds of books. Not read, but write 100s of books.
It’s not easy, but it’s easier than most people would think or assume.
You have a powerful brain.
(Note: One way to harness that power is through memory, and one way for that is by using powerful software. I strongly recommend multiple readings of this article by the head of YC research – Augmenting Long Term Memory)
