You’ve heard this before, I’m sure – maybe even during some training: “By tomorrow, you’ll have forgotten half of what happened today. In a week, you’ll only remember one or two things. In a year, you’ll have forgotten everything.” Yikes – way to prime people to forget… I honestly can’t think of anything worse to say to people, short of continuously belittling their intelligence. Yet you hear it all the time. Bonus points if they ask you to sign up for their next course.
