Remember to Do What You Already Know

Is your short-term memory horrible or is just your short-term memory?Hey there everyone!!

Conversations disappear. {Poof!}

Can you remember most of the conversations you’ve had in your life?

Most people can’t.  In fact, most people can’t remember their own rules and standards in the moments of life when they most need to abide by them!

Are you too busy to improve?If we’re not improving, we’re un-improving (getting worse).  That’s why we need to, in some sense, continually manage the existence of the things we want most in our lives…

That’s personal development.  It’s managing the existence of our health, our wealth, our mind, our bodies, our spirits, our emotions, our time, our relationships, and our work.  Basically, managing the existence of our life gives us a better quality of life.

You already know this, right?

At the end of most of my keynote speeches, I say:

What do you remember?“Most people say ‘I know that.  That’s simple.  It’s easy to do.’  But then they don’t do it.  That’s because no matter how simple and easy something is to do, it is always easier NOT to do it.”

The million dollar question is: Do we do what we know we should in the most crucial moments we need to do it?

Unfortunately, we don’t remember as well as we’d like to remember.  And like Plato said, “learning is remembering”.

How do you remember?  (Stop, and take a moment to actually reflect on that.)

Memory MomentsOne of my favorite speakers, Casey Combden, had a popular phrase that I’ve remembered from over a decade ago: “You don’t know what you don’t know.  That’s why you don’t have.  Because if you knew what you knew, then you’d have.  Because to know and not to do, it not to know.  You know?”

So, how do you do it – If we know, then how do we remember to do?

Practice.  Patience.  Faith.  Becoming aware of inner mind chatter, whether through forms of meditation, cognitive behavior therapies, or our own guiding intuition, is what may trigger us to remember.

Everything is spiritual.First we’ll remember much after the fact (of when we wanted to remember).  Then we’ll remember quicker, and quicker.  Then, finally, we’ll be able to remember at the most critical moment of consciousness, where we can intentionally alter our behaviors to shift.

Interrupt patterns of undesired thought simply by altering the visual and audio elements of your memories.  Condition yourself to speak the voice of your favorite childhood cartoon character every time you say something to yourself you wish you hadn’t said.  It’s comical, and it works.  (I chose Fred Flintstone.)

Reading a newsletter like this can be a very powerful trigger to remind you.  (Which is why it’s a great reason to share it with the world.)  Create transformative triggers that bring you back home.

Look and feel ugly, then enjoy it...Home is that spark of consciousness that has us live in the full freedom of choice.  You know that everything you need is right under your nose.  You are the person you have been waiting.

Remember that.

Always remember never to forget.

Have you done anything lately worth remembering?And never forget to always remember.

Let’s love the world together…

P.S. What will you remember from reading this article?  Anchor the nuggets by creating associations that work with your personality style and life preferences (e.g, notes, conversations, posts, requests, schedules, goals, and vision boards, to name a couple of paradigms).

Sharing is a ReminderingP.P.S  It’s not just about what you don’t know that you don’t know.  There’s also the realm of what you don’t know and may never ever know.  So it is not so much about knowing more, as it is about remembering more.  And, forgive yourself for not remembering, too.  Even Goddess is not perfect.
